When Design Milk’s Jaime Derringer decided to give her dining room and living room some much needed TLC, she called in the big guns – Emily Henderson. Which may come as a surprise (it certainly did us!). Why? Because Jaime lives and breathes all things design and is an incredible artist in her own right. But when it came to designing her own space, she had trouble channeling the colorful, modern design aesthetic she is known for into a cohesive look for her home. Just check out the before photos.
Emily’s team pulled out all the stops and nearly everything in the room was swapped out for new pieces. What stayed? The dining table and the Hunter Douglas shades. You may recall we partnered with Jaime a few years back, installing Designer Roller Shades in her living room and dining room. At the time, Jaime wanted a window treatment style that blended perfectly into the background. Fast-forward to today and her Hunter Douglas shades still look great, but she wanted to up her window décor game with some custom drapery.
When Jaime contacted us about the project, we initially thought she would want to stick with her neutral color palette at the window. But when Decorview designer, Cynthia, saw the space and the project’s mood board, she knew the room could support a strong color.
Which brings us to the beautiful blush pink drapery. Now we usually don’t like to play favorites…but come on – it’s millennial pink drapery! There’s really no contest.
Because the drapery was such a statement, Cynthia suggested choosing a natural textured linen to help ground and balance the color. The traditional top pleat screams custom and the streamlined black hardware matches the pops of black dotted around the space.
We couldn’t be more thrilled with how the makeover turned out and hope you like it too! If you’re interested in custom drapery for your home, request a free virtual or in-home consultation today. We’ll then call you to set-up an appointment with a drapery-certified designer in your area. And if you live in San Diego, you can even request Cynthia!
We want to hear from you, what do you think of the pink drapery?
