Well the roman shades are done for both windows. I've been planning on making these for years, probably since we painted the room which was what, like three years ago. I got the fabric from this great little place that no longer exists that was near Herman Miller. Talk about getting some great home dec fabrics. I have the creme de la creme of home decs, this being one of my favorites. It's a Jhane Barnes 100% spun polyester called, Drift, in the burgundy colorway. I got almost 3 yards for probably a buck. I'll have to pat myself on the back in that I can find me some good fabric.
I like the way this fabric goes with the olive wall, it has a little green in it, I just think it works well with this color wall. Plus because it's so densely woven, it blocks out nearly all of the light which I like, I just don't like the idea of people being able to see in. I dunno, it creeps me out.
I put this purple lining on it because my friend "Dos" told me that according to feng shui, you should have a fiery purple on you south facing office window. I know to listen to Dos, besides her having exquisite taste (she could have a whole other successful career as an interior designer), she's always right. We used to call her the oracle of oliver street. So here's my fiery purple as according to Dos. I hope it works.
