Casual Drapery Designs – House Photo Tour from Southern Living

Simple Pinstripe fabric in neutral and white is light and airy - stripe adds height to the room;  

Simple, sophisticated panels with clever rope ties makes panel fabrication easy using buttonholes at the top edge.  Elegant oxford style stripe adds classic charm with coastal sand dune beige and white, a warm colorway you will never grow tired of.  Standard 3/4″ or 1″ metal drapery hardware is available from several retail sources at reasonable prices.  Although skimpier than we usually work with it feels right with the simple panel designs illustrated here.

 Beautiful entryway using unlined canvas fabric hung with pinch clips makes for easy panel fabrication with flat band header.  Semi sheer fabric is perfect for the doorway providing privacy with all the glass yet still allowing daylight to pour thru.

Rope tie detail – up close.  Works beautifully for fixed panels – not a good design detail for traversable drapery panels.
