Here at Feathers we are loving the newest in neutrals…Nude shades that could make you blush!Barely there shades of off white & ivory, the palest of pinks and skin toned hues. These soft feminine colors are timeless, classic and have become staples for designers in all fields. The master shoe designer Christian Louboutin has actually created an entire line of nude colored pumps to match any skin tone…Genius. From high end couture on the runways, to everyday style , nude fashions are so chic, so fresh.

Here are some of our favorite frames, upholstered in nude. Don’t go dark this fall- go nude!

The Importance of Drapery http://www.feathersdesign.com/the-importance-of-drapery/ http://www.feathersdesign.com/the-importance-of-drapery/#respond Fri, 28 Aug 2015 14:00:37 +0000 http://www.feathersdesign.com/?p=9189 The post The Importance of Drapery appeared first on Feathers Design & Manufacturing.

The Importance of Drapery 
Adding drapery treatments is often the final and most important step in completing the design of a room. Soft window treatments bring so much elegance. Our talented designers and workroom inside our furniture store will help you create the perfect custom drapes, cornices, valances, top treatments and more!

Drapery treatments are multi-functional and can significantly and dramatically change a room. When determining the style of the drapery treatment, form will often follow function. In some cases, when privacy or light control aren’t issues, decorative side panels can frame a beautiful view and soften a room. When privacy and light control are needed, a functioning drapery treatment will take care of those needs and add beauty and softness to your room.Our designers here at Feathers have many years of expertise in window treatments and our onsite drapery work room has been fabricating drapery for over 20 years. Our designers will come to your house for a complimentary consultation to help determine which spaces and windows could be most improved by adding drapery treatments. From there, the options are limitless.

Our designers can help you determine how your drapery should function and what kind of hardware to mount it with. Sometimes a simple iron rod with a drapery hanging on rings is just right but other situations might call for a dramatic over treatment with crystals and trim detail. Motorized drapery hardware is also becoming increasingly popular. Our extensive fabric library offers thousands of options for the perfect drapery fabric. By walking through your room our designers will get an idea of what existing colors, textures and elements to keep in mind while selecting fabric choices. Once a fabric is carefully chosen we can help you decide if you want to add a contrasting band of fabric, trim, an over treatment like a swag, etc.

Once our onsite workroom has completed your drapery treatment our team of installers will bring it to your residence and carefully mount the hardware and hang the drapery. From there your room takes on a whole new level of sophistication and beauty. Visit or contact us at your convenience to schedule a design consultation. Our showroom and furniture store is full of inspiration!

1. Upholster the walls. Create a visual focal point to anchor the headboard in the space with an upholstered wall, plus this adds an extra layer of comfort and warmth.

2. Stick with a color story. Keep all of the finishes and fabrics within a slight variation on the same tone for a calming effect.

3. Think linear. Make a space feel open by selecting furnishings that complement the lines of the room moving linearly right to left in an elongating manner.

4. Add softness and warmth by installing lush drapery panels and tufted cornice boards.

5. Be Bold. If the bedding and furnishings read more discreet, have some fun with the rug or drapery fabric. Patterns are an opportunity to interject rich personality into the bedroom.

6. Less can be more. For a peaceful night time retreat, create an escape sans all distractions.

7. Warm things up. Incorporate a fireplace into your bedroom. How luxurious to fall asleep to the crackle of firewood and glimmering light?

8. Use the same fabric family for the bedding, drapery and to upholster walls to make your space look larger and still retain a cozy atmosphere.

9. Work the walls. Use light to enhance a space and add extra focus to the texture on walls and architectural elements.

We can’t get enough of bright, sunny florals and prints this spring.  This issue of Nest will introduce you to some of our favorites!
Clarke and Clarke Traviata Collection 

Reminiscent of the Italian Mediterranean, colours of Riviera blue, chartreuse and olive are brought to life through rich embroidered damasks, bold geometrics and metallic weaves in the Traviata collection.  It uses a mixture of tie-dye printing techniques on linen grounds combined with embroidery, as well as woven jacquards and textured plains. The nine designs in this opulent collection feature classical colors such as chartreuse, ebony and ash as well as striking flamingo and ink.
Clarke & Clarke Tatton Linens Collection 

A beautiful collection of three embroidered linen patterns and a coordinated plain. The look is classically English, pretty, embellished floral trails and simple trellis patterns available in many colours which can be cross coordinated throughout the whole range, providing endless design opportunities. The quality is very soft and easy to drape and the colors are best described as transitional, with classic Chintz shades combining well with bolder shades of Apple and Raspberry. Also on offer are chic shades of Duck Egg, Heather, Natural and Rose which provide stylish, toned down alternatives. 
Kravet Jaipur Collection
The Jaipur collection from Kravet features a full range of beautifully colored prints on linen and cotton. Ikat, Suzani and Jacobean prints from the collection draw inspiration from ethnic and tribal influences, in addition to possessing floral attributes. These fabrics are ideal for upholstery, drapery, bedcoverings, pillows and accessories. As part of the Kravet Basics program, all fabrics in this collection are multi-purpose and can be mixed and matched for everyday use.
Fabricut Isabelle de Borchgrave Collection 
Fabricut introduces world renowned Belgian artist and sculptor, Isabelle de Borchgrave, is famous for her paper mannequins that are inspired by her love of textiles, history and fashion. Isabelle and her team bring to life these costumes using a variety of techniques – painting, pleating, crinkling, block printing, sculpting and molding all pushing the boundaries of her chosen medium, paper. The trompe l’oeil effect is superb and the costumes come to life with a magical presence. Colorful and dramatic, Isabelle’s sense of color and design is exuberant and inspiring.
Robert Allen Botanical Color Collection 
Robert Allen presents Botanical Color, a flourishing collection of fabrics bursting with energy, color and wild abundance. The collection cultivates beauty in every stitch—from lavish digitally printed florals to inky block prints to classic damasks in fresh, modern color ways. This thriving garden of styles captures the diverse beauty found in the natural world while paying homage to current urban trends. 
Robert Allen DwellStudio Spring Collection 
Robert Allen and New York-based design house DwellStudio celebrates design’s heyday captured within the pages of legendary shelter magazines from the 1950s, ’60s and ’70s. The new Modern Archive takes enduring patterns and motifs—florals, Op-art geometrics, toile—and breathes new life into them with exciting proportions, impressionistic gradations and on trend color combinations, all of which can be layered with DwellStudio’s signature art-of-the-mix style. The result creates a fresh new look that walks the line between urban and urbane.
Lee Jofa Hunt Slonem Collection Lee Jofa presents the new Hunt Slonem Collection.  From layers of woven embroidery and rich velvet applique to vibrant colors and remarkable patterns, this collection of fabric mimics the signature crosshatch painting technique and repetition of tropical birds, exotic butterflies, and striking plant life that beautifully embodies the essence of Hunt Slonem’s signature paintings
