We frequently get calls from customers who live in historical homes. In the St. Louis area, we are invited into many of the homes in the Lafayette Square area to decorate. To an inexperienced designer, this can be very intimidating. But not for the Sunshine Drapery team – with the average decorator having over 15 years of experience.
How Do You Decorate a Historical Period Home?
We once had the opportunity to work with a civil war setting and the decorator diligently sought out fabrics that were velvet and had the colors of the civil war..blues and grays. She designed a swag and jabot style with panels and added beaded trim to enhance the entire project. The velvet material, the colors of gray and blue and the trim made this project successful.
Now, every home with historical aspects does not involve civil war settings. But, we are very good at looking at the setting of the home and working with the customer to meet their needs with a look that is appropriate.
A month ago, we had a customer in Lafayette Square and we ended up putting plantation shutters in their living room and dining room area. Plantation shutters just added an ambiance so fitting for the historical home. We typically will utilize shutters or some form of drapery panels with a topper as illustrated in the Civil War project.
