Wind that ruffles the curtains

via here

Like picking wildflowers, I've been harvesting images via Pinterest for my citrus palette inspiration board.  Hues of orange, lemon yellow, green and cream that I hoped to translate into window treatments.  The tiny swatches of yellow and orange slubby linen that had been sitting on our window seals for years have finally been tossed.  
As Martha Moore and team pulled into my drive...I could feel the wind that would ruffle my curtains!  My blank canvas of cream was about to be rendered with some color.   A couple of months prior I ventured to nearby historic Camden, South Carolina to visit her shop, d'Antignac Designs, to find a full-service designer workroom.  What I had been searching for...a one stop shop.  

533 Rutledge Street
Camden, South Carolina 


This project a perfect example of why to hire professionals...five similarly sized windows, all different measurements.  The quaintness and character of an old home is equaled matched by its irregularities and surprises.  Tediously measured by Martha, the panels fit perfectly.

BEFORE-DINING ROOM

Order through her shop, black iron return rods installed in the dining room.

Expert hands at work.  Each panel interlined and blackout lined...and functional to close.

Old rough plaster walls and odd measurements...each panel was carefully and strategically installed.

Martha dressing the panels, setting the pleats.

Installation in progress in the living room.




AFTER-DINING ROOM


Through the foyer and into the living room.

My citrus palette complete...orange, yellow, and green.  Well, and a touch of blue...just keep that popsicle away from the cuuuuuurtains!
