THE KIDS' ROOMS - DEL MAR HOUSE

Of all the window treatments I did in this house, I think this room was my favorite. I liked the colors best in here. The fabric is actually Sunbrella.
They had the wall custom-painted using the blue and green of the fabric.
I did white roman shades for these windows. Originally, I was going to try and make shades that matched the stripes on the wall, but it proved impossible and would really have only matched when they were down. White seemed like a better bet. Easier, too!
And, of course, there had to be matching pillows for the bed.
Even the shower curtain matches the draperies.
This is the little boy's room. I think he was about 3 at the time and was into the beach. His mom had surf boards painted on his walls.
The window treatments were made with denim and I used rope at the top. I actually got the rope at West Marine, because it was strong enough to hold the weight of the fabric. I made a lot of buttonholes on these panels.
The large window.
