CURTAINS & DRAPERIES FIRST PLACE Vita Vygovska Vitalia, Inc. Richboro, PA

The spacious living area features 10 drapery panels. Each panel pattern is matched to feature identical stripes. The repeated pattern made it challenging to calculate total yardage. The drapery panels are fabricated with Obi Strip in Rock Garden in shades of taupe, gray and cream by Brentano Fabrics. The box pleat is well-suited for the wide-stripe fabric and adds to the room’s contemporary style. Hung on Brimar square cube acrylic rods with black onyx brackets, rings and finials, the window treatments certainly add to the room’s crisp, clean design.

The 182-year-old Antebellum Greek Revival mansion in North Georgia served as a hospital during the Civil War and survived being burned because both Confederate and Union soldiers were treated there. The mansion is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and, as such, all the window treatments must adhere to the specific designs and fabrics from that period. Reminiscent of the décor in the film Gone with the Wind, these 6-foot-wide by 4-foot-long royal blue velvet swags from Fabric.com drip with a 9-inch bullion fringe from TrimDepot.com and are installed on gold antique wood rods and finials by United Supply Co. The 14-feet cascades are also trimmed in 6-inch bullion fringe. A layer of replicated historically accurate lace sheer drapes add elegance when pulled back with coordinating tiebacks. A roller shade adds to the overall historical look. The project is a great example of how good design can be used to provide historical preservation.
