Room of the Month – March 2024

Mar 22, 2024

Rienk & Annie were neighbours of ours growing up in Bowmanville for many years. When they sold their home to move into this beautiful condo in Whitby, they called me in to create window treatments that would complement their new furniture and surroundings.
  • This all happened during Covid, so extra measures of caution were taken and now we can finally feature their home.
  • The Patio Door and Den have an open concept, and creating solutions with the whole home coordination in mind was the obvious choice.
  • The Bedroom Window faces East so morning sun needed to be addressed.
  • Annie always dresses very classy, with fine jewelry and gorgeous details so I wanted to reflect her great taste in the window treatments as well.

  • Custom Cornice Valances were built in the Sensational SEAMS Woodworking Shop and upholstered keeping the pattern and design of the fabric in mind.  

  • A contrast banding with detailed beaded trim raises the bar on this sophisticated style.  HunterDouglas Luminette Privacy Sheers for the patio door and Silhouette A Deux Shades for the Den provide both light and privacy.  

  • These solutions coordinate horizontal window coverings with complementary vertical sheers for a cohesive look throughout the space.

  • For the Bedroom, the back shade provides extended sleeping hours, darkening the room with the Silhouette A Deux Shade, while providing soft light and UV protection for the bedding.  

  • The Valance is trimmed with all the colour tones of the valance and bedding fabrics, creating soft billows for this traditional styled valance.

When you have known someone almost all your life, it is such an honour to be called in to help them settle into a new surrounding to make it feel like the home they enjoyed for so many years. It’s more than the fabrics and solutions, it’s all about creating an atmosphere that can be enjoyed everyday, a place where family and friends visit and talk about “the good old days”. I love creating spaces that are warm and inviting, with quality solutions that look like the day we installed them. So thankful for great neighbours, no matter the driving distance between us now.
