I hope all of you are enjoying your summer thus far. Today, I
would like to talk about window treatments. All too often, I notice that when
it comes to room décor, clients have difficulty when it comes to their windows.
They buy beautiful furniture, lighting, and hang great art on the walls, but
window treatments are either nonexistent or they just choose ready-made blinds.
There is nothing better in my eyes, as a room with beautiful drapery. Not only
does it complete the room, it adds privacy.
I have just completed a fantastic design project with
amazing clients in Brookline. We focused on the dining room; my drapery fabricator
and I incorporated tailored panels, sheer fabrics, and a gold rod for privacy,
as the dining room faced the front of the home. The completed look gives a very
contemporary feel that my clients had asked for.
One important factor when choosing fabrics for windows is to
always try to choose a product of a fine thread count and composition; this is
always a factor in the way draperies will hang. Below we used a sheer fabric
from Romo & Co., and side panels from Fabricut. Most of all, your window
treatments require fine workmanship, as this is the key to a great finished,
So, folks, as I always say, “Don’t be afraid to decorate!”

With the summer on it's way, our clients have been very busy refreshing certain areas in their second homes. Mainly, guest bedrooms, powder rooms, and bathrooms. Here are some examples of the most popular choices!
These wallcovering choices are sophisticated, timeless and, at the same time, playful. This is just a small sampling of what The Four Walls can do for your summer home!
So as I always say folks, "Don't be afraid to decorate!"
It is with great enthusiasm that I introduce to you today
the new revised concept within the wallcovering design industry. Vinyl textures
that imitate real grass cloth with patterns placed on top of the texture. This new
Spring 2018 wallcovering launch from England may be used in any area of your
home because they are completely washable, and because they are vinyl they may be
used in steamy bathrooms, kitchens, and hallways where your little one may hold
the wall going up and down the stairs. Unlike the “paneling effect” that real
grass cloth has on a wall, these vinyl & linen counterparts show virtually no
seams or paneling. They are also very stylish, timeless and subtle with
geometrics, floral and scenic patterns.
My clients are adoring these vinyl wallcoverings because
they are chic, practical and also hide imperfections in older homes that have
horsehair plaster, or badly plastered walls.
Stop by the Four Walls and see these new wallcoverings for
Spring 2018 in person!
And, as I always say, “Don’t
be afraid to decorate!”

One of my most favorite wallpaper
and fabric design companies is Stroheim. I have been introducing my clients to
their products for over thirty years. It is with much excitement that I introduce to you today their latest Spring launch, called Aura. This new collection is
unlike anything that they have ever designed previously. The collection
incorporates hand-printed silk patterns of Asian influence, and geometrics with
multiple textures of unusual contemporary design. The collection includes
coordinated fabrics that can be used with their wallcoverings. My opinion of
Aura is its soft, sophisticated, and timeless approach will enhance any design
style in one’s home.
Stop by The Four Walls to explore
this collection in person.
