Good drape design involves more than the obvious. Anyone can pick the right color for a room, but did you consider some of the other things that will happen as a result of your choice? Watch the video to see what happens when a bold color is chosen for the drapes.

For this client, they are happy with the choice, but if you had selected this fabric, would your designer have mentioned to you what the light filtering through would do to the color of your room?

When Kempler Design does its consultations, we go over just about every detail imaginable. This will help you to avoid design mistakes.
