i subscribe to several great magazines and love them all equally because they each impart a different perspectives on design, lifestyle, fashion, travel and trends. one of the mags i include in this category is sunset magazine, and last week they flew down from northern california to shoot our offices and my very own kitchen!
i was asked to show readers how to dress a window on a budget, without of course having it look as though it were done on a budget. this is a common challenge for me as a designer, especially as of late, as custom window treatments can cost a small fortune! the solution i came up with a few years ago was make what i call “faux romans,” something i’ve used in several of my projects successfully (see photo below).
its a bit of a diy project, so they shot ‘how-to’ photos along with the install of the shades in my kitchen, they looked super cute!
in addition to the kitchen, sunset photographed our offices for an upcoming issue as well, very exciting!
to find out how to make your very own ‘faux romans’ look for my drapery tips in the october issue and pics of our offices sometime next year!
