Dramatic Drapery

Custom drapery is one element that should not be neglected.  Drapery that perfectly fits the scale of a space is important in creating a fully designed look.  There is nothing worse than walking into a room and seeing ready-made drapery that is a foot too short without any fullness on a window.  The poor window does not deserve such treatment!  Custom drapery does not need to be overdone with…

Transitioning a Preteen’s Bedroom

Transitioning a Preteen’s Bedroom

One of our current design projects here at THOFKL is a transitioning teen girl’s bedroom.  Transitioning from elementary school to middle school is a big step worthy of a bedroom re-do that will carry her into college.  Our client wants a color scheme of lavender, teal, silver, and white to create a grownup room that is fresh and fun.  We decided to offer several room inspirations with an ode to…

Ceiling Fans- Not So Gross

Ceiling Fans- Not So Gross

We all have seen nightmarish ceiling fans so delicately dangling in a room…from plastic blades to bell-shaped glass light kits, ceiling fans have a bad wrap.  In the South, when you are dying of heat exhaustion in the summer, indoor ceiling fans are a serious design consideration.  Do I suffer and sweat under a fabulous chandelier or can I feel cool and calm under a fabulous ceiling fan; is that…
