Belmont This Old House

May 30, 2016

In October we installed some beautiful drapes in a home in Belmont for a designer doing a “This Old House” project.  It was fun to be there the day the panels were hung, and seeing behind the scenes of the show.  Now that the show has been aired in it’s entirety I am able to share some photos.

New Cornices for Beacon Hill

September 10, 2015

The fabric for this project is a Romo damask.  What I particularly love about it is that the embroidery threads are vertical everywhere but at the center of the medallion.  Those threads are horizontal, so that that small dot reflects the light and appears as a tiny jewel. Designed by BRInc Design.
