Elegant Dining Room Curtains

This very formal dining room called for statement curtains. For one thing, it's enormous, and for another, the spectacular millwork and custom paint finishes on the walls and ceilings make eating any meal in here a very special occasion. The homeowner chose a beautiful paisley fabric in a midnight colorway with lots of gold accents and requested elegant french pleated panels. 

I'm pretty sure the spot in the middle of each picture might be peanut butter on my lens. my bad.

 The brass rods and finials are from Restoration Hardware. They are the real deal and they are beautiful. I highly recommend checking that site for window hardware. 

Here's a close up of the fabric. It's not very heavy so I used a heavy napped lining to give them lots of body. The original plan was to add some kind of trim down the leading edge of each panel. The jury's still out on that. I think they will hang as is for a while and see if they need any more bling.
