  • Ceiling to floor drapery softens the clean, somewhat stark look of the window shades.
  • The pattern of the fabric complements the shades and other furnishings while adding another element of design to the neutral room.
  • Foregoing the use of a drapery rod with classic pinch pleat panels retains the architectural highlight of the window arches.

Second Place: Combination Treatments 

Onofrio and Mary Anne DeMattia had already installed Illusion shades the previous year in this sunroom-slash-living room. When the client reached out to ask for something to soften the stark look of the blinds, the DeMattia’s understood that the expansive views remained a priority.

“The client didn’t want a decorative rod,” said Onofrio DeMattia, “so we settled on a classic, three-finger pinch pleat panels. The goal was to find a fabric that complemented the shades and the other furnishings while adding another element of design to the neutral room.”

The stationary panels were sized to fit between the eyebrow window while covering just a bit of each frame, with the single windows on each end of the room treated with the same panel width.
