Elizabeth R. Swartz, ASID of Elizabeth Swartz Interiors of Boston, MA – awarded the prestigious recognition of 1st place for Curtains and Draperies!
This award-winning project consists of custom window treatments for a large window with an exquisite view of the adjacent golf course. Both the draperies and the gently arching valance, were designed to accent the cathedral ceiling while maintaining the relaxed, feminine feeling of this peaceful master suite. In addition to the draperies, the motorized woven grass shade offers room darkening and/or privacy when desired. The objective was to deliver an elegant design solution – a functional treatment that would add both beauty and drama to the space.
This design competition is featured in the May/June2013 issue of Window Fashion Vision magazine and on the VISION website. Click here for a link to the May/June 2013 Window Fashion Vision Magazine.
