Sew Beautiful Interiors > Design > Our Homes Are Our Havens
Read more about our work on this project starting on page 72 of the March/April 2020 issue of Annapolis Home Magazine.

Our client came to us during construction of her new home to help her with interior design and window treatments for the whole house. The living room, long and narrow with three window walls presented the greatest design challenge. Our plan started with the colorful palette of her prior home and the integration of several furniture pieces and a few window treatments from that home as well.

Lehmann Project Before Photo

In the living room, with such expansive views of the water we knew the window treatments on the door walls would have to be subtle to frame the view, not take away from it. In this room, privacy and light control (filtering the harsh sun reflecting off the water), were equally important. Traversing panels offer needed functionality but we had to balance the volume and stack back of the fabric that would be needed to cover the expansive windows/door walls. An unlined pleated sheer is a good way to accomplish this. The fabric we chose, an embroidered sheer provides subtle texture and a quiet backdrop allowing the outside to blend with the colorful blues and greens of the interior furnishings. 

Sofa, chairs, and chaise were all reupholstered in coordinating fabrics in blues and greens, not only our client’s favorite colors, but a means of bringing the outdoors in!
The kitchen valance, one of our client’s favorites that we had custom made for her prior home, was resized to fit the new kitchen window.
