Would you like to see window treatments for a log home ?

My Mom and stepdad built a log home last summer in the country. It has a huge wrap around porch with rocking chairs and ferns. I took some pictures while we were there this weekend to share with you. We went and picked out 2 puppies for them yesterday, they loved playing with Zoe ! Aren't they adorable ?

I made these draperies for the living room and dining room. The first time I saw this fabric from Pindler and Pindler I fell in love with it. It was really pricey so we just ordered enough to do cornices and we used a solid linen for the draperies. They are lined and interlined and are on a traverse rod to open. This is a really good way to use an expensive fabric and still get the most impact.

This is my Mom's room, she wanted a soft feminine space. We chose a nice floral with a handsome peacock printed on it and put tassel fringe on the bottom of the valances. The draperies are lined with blackout lining so it can be really dark anytime of the day.
This roman shade is on the back door in the laundry room. It is a sage green toile with a beautiful braid at the bottom.

I had this painted for them at Christmas by a local artist (Mr. Stitches' Dad) haha, ok, I've never called him that before and it really makes me laugh out loud !
He is a wonderful artist and I just described what I wanted in the painting and he did this fabulous still life and it is hanging in the great room and looks so good in their log home.

I'll post more pics later, I just wanted to show the window treatments for now. Do you like it ?

Oh how I wish you lived closer to me... I'm way over here in Canada Tammy.
I adore your Zoe, and those puppies are adorable.
Is Zoe a Wheaton Terrier/goldendoodle/labradoodle?
Your draperies are too die for. You are one awesome seamstress. I love the way the drapes warm the house. Who would have thought??? ... you...
Love Claudie
