Thanks to all who helped as I agonized over the drapery - color etc....
It took some time to order properly - I wanted insulated but that would have really cost$$$ so I have silk lined LaScala panels fr. JCP which I ordered as made to length

Well the installer came and a few glitches esp w/length - thank goodness he is quite experienced - I ended up with a little puddle which I didn't want but can live with. The alternate would have been raising the rod over the window trim which I don't think works for this application given the wp

Quick & primitive photos - and the old silk panels w/wrinkles - I've heard sev suggestions - in dryer no heat & carefully used prof steamere (what JCP uses for showroom) keeping the steamer direct on drapery

*** Why aren't all those chairs done yet?????

And blinds are in the sunroom. Thank goodness I researched & listened to the op of going w/Faux - hmmm they have been stored on basement floor. Well the Nor easter that went through left us w/a few inches in our newly refinished basement - while we were in Fla !! -

One glitch w/them (when isn't there a glitch!) they were ordered as an inside mount w/outside valance - I need a different return 1" instead of the 3" they sent
Love the look - bye, bye vinyl shades!

I'm looking for ideas on decorating a house that has been designed as french ecclectic by my architect. I'd like to keep the french/european theme for the interior but need resources that will educated me on how to pursue this design. Books, magazines, or websitem recommendations will be greatly appreciated.
