Million dollar spaces: DIY drapes complete the look, pull it all together
PHOENIX -- Almost every million dollar home feature custom draperies. Pulling together the look of an entire room, they can be expensive. Scottsdale designer Britany Simon, the runner-up on season seven of HGTV Design Star, says you can create an amazing designer look for yourself, if you're willing to invest some effort. She did just that for here baby's room and the playroom. "I was lusting after this fabric that was about $170 a yard,which was not in my budget ...," she explained. "I decided to make my own with fabric pain." She started with white fabric from Hobby Lobby. Some fabric paint and a few hems later, she had a great look. If you prefer a no-sew option, you can buy ready-made panels for about $30 a pair and then unleash your creativity. "It takes a little time, but I actually think that's part of the fun of it," Simon said. "And you can talk about how it's something you created on your own." If you're not the DIY type, Scott Pasmore suggest a website called HalfPriceDrapes.com. That's where he bought drapes for his home and he was very pleased. By the way, while many use "drapes" and "curtains" interchangeably, they are not exactly the same thing. Drapes are floor length, made of a heavier fabric, and generally include a lining. Curtains are shorter -- often only as long as the window they're covering -- and lighter, even sheer, and generally filter light rather than blocking it. Drapes are an elegant design feature while curtains, while still looking very good, are more utilitarian and appropriate for professional settings.
