Family country home

Family country home, Norfolk – revamping a drawing room

As part of the total refurbishment of this large country home, Lisa Dawson was commissioned to introduce soft furnishings to the drawing room. The brief was to create heavily interlined, sumptuous window dressings using the beautiful GP & J Baker linen.

After assessing the proportion of the room, and the size and the shape of the bay, Lisa Dawson Interiors designed a wonderfully decorative window area with softly gently shaped valances set on a curved pelmet board in the bay. A triple pleat was used to give a certain amount of formality to the design while at the same time ensuring that the beautifully printed fabric is in full view. Also a deep bullion trim was used to highlight the shaping of the valance leading the eye outside to the stunning views.
