Whole-Home Window Treatment Project

Last year, we had the opportunity to partner with the talented design team at Lindsay Laine Interiors on a substantial residential project that included window treatments and soft goods for multiple rooms across the entire residence. It was quite an undertaking that came with challenges, especially in scale, but with careful planning and custom craftsmanship, we designed solutions to beautifully outfit each distinct space. The end result is a seamless integration of form and function reflecting the homeowners’ personal aesthetic and Lindsay’s vision.

Dining Room

In the dining room, the objective was dual-layered operable draperies reaching from floor to ceiling to cover the massive 11-foot-tall windows. When the first layer of gorgeous Kravet fabric wasn’t wide enough to meet the original plan of railroading, we had to get creative. In order to preserve the vertical motif, we implemented three horizontal tucks, synchronizing them with the windows’ existing architectural grid lines to create a cohesive design element that looks as if it were intended from the beginning. Behind this outer light-filtering layer, the solid back drape traverses the bolt widthwise, overcoming dimensional constraints through careful placement and expert seaming. In the end, we delivered on our goal, affording the homeowners complete control over their privacy, visibility, and the room’s abundance of natural light.

With peaked ceiling windows spanning an entire wall, the role of window treatments in the airy great room was to add softness without obstructing the expansive view. Following the angled windows, Kirsch hardware secures four goblet-pleated stationary panels of sumptuous Anna French sheer over a delicate, light-filtering lining. The result brings a touch of texture and a luminous glow without inhibiting the room’s natural sight lines.

Off the main kitchen, the inviting hearth room features a striking five-sided bay window—the perfect canvas for operable Roman shades. To streamline operation while ensuring safety and uniformity, we employed the EasySpring Plus Cordless Lift System. With the touch of a hand, the rich, textured shades glide up and down for just the right dose of sunlight or privacy, exemplifying both form and function while preserving the hearth room’s warmth and charm.

Master Bedroom

In the primary bedroom, we opted for an operable ripplefold panel crafted from an indulgent Kravet solid to cover the impressive 16-foot window wall. Hung from a Kirsch Buckingham Estate wood traverse rod with a shimmery silver finish, the ripplefold panels operate smoothly via baton draw control for ease of use, granting privacy or daylight at the homeowners’ whim. Fully open, the ripples form elegant stacked folds, then glide easily closed, where—fully drawn—the panel edges overlap, minimizing light leakage for maximum privacy.

Tasked with outfitting the towering windows in the home office, soaring 12 feet floor-to-ceiling, we tailored draperies with substantial six-inch goblet pleats to match the scale. The geometric pattern in the drapery fabric delivers eye-catching style. A study in technical finesse, the grandly-portioned, cord-drawn panels enable the homeowner to seal off distractions gracefully regulating light and privacy.

Guest Room

Attention to detail elevates every space, as evidenced by additional window treatments beyond the main entertaining areas. The guest bedroom displays an operable roman shade with a convenient cordless lift, where the primary bath features a flat Roman shade prioritizing ease of use with Somfy’s virtually invisible motorization. Roman shades come in many types and styles, as detailed in this blog post, and are a versatile treatment perfect for many windows.

At Parkway Window Works, we also specialize in soft treatments. For this project, a plush custom cushion of Thibaut upholstery-weight fabric enhances the primary closet. We even outfitted the resident’s nursery with an oversized cushion for a cozy reading nook, which is complemented by the room’s Hunter Douglas woven wood shade with the cordless lift system.
