Drapery Street was honored to be a part of Home-a-Rama 2016! This year’s Home-a-Rama showcased eleven stunning homes in the Chatham Hills neighborhood in Westfield, Indiana. Each of these homes were custom-built by members of the Builders Association of Greater Indianapolis and feature the latest trends in design, technology, and landscaping.
Drapery Street has created custom window treatments for two 2016 Home-a-Rama homes, the Old Town Design Group house and the Gradison Design Build house. Today we’re touring the Old Town Design Group house (you can take a tour of the Gradison Design home here). The Old Town home is all about modern farmhouse living. It was designed to be welcoming yet feel intimate. The interior of the home was styled by Wendy Langston of Everything Home.
To achieve a modern farmhouse look, this home combines clean lines with traditional farmhouse features such as shiplap, lofty ceilings, metal roofing, and plenty of porch space. The home sits on the gorgeous Chatham Hills golf course and each room has a spectacular view. All of the window treatments chosen for this home contribute to the clean lines and help control light without obstructing the views.
Let’s get started on the tour of the Home-a-Rama 2016 Old Town Home!
Stop 1: The Great Room
The great room is the heart and soul of this house. It is a spacious room with lofty barn ceilings. While it can accommodate large gatherings, it feels intimate. The shiplap wall, barn doors, and large fireplace give the room a cozy familiar feel. The furniture mixes pattern and texture for another layer of coziness. The window treatments in this room are Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades. They provide UV protection and light control while maintaining the view of the golf course.
Stop 2: The Hearth Room
The hearth room provides a cozy spot for the family to come together and relax. While it has an easy feel, it is also quietly sophisticated. As in the great room, the window treatments in the hearth room are Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades. These shades are a bit more opaque for additional light control.
Stop 3: The Study
The study is elegant yet masculine with a calm atmosphere to drive productivity. The window treatments in this room are Hunter Douglas Heritance® hardwood shutters in espresso. The pure seasoned hardwood adds to the warmth and natural beauty of the study.
Stop 4: The Guest Bedroom
Guests in this home will have no trouble getting a restful night’s sleep in this welcoming and serene bedroom. The three windows allow for lots of natural light. The natural light can be controlled to fit any guest’s preference with the Hunter Douglas Parkland® Wood Blinds. These blinds are made from wood harvested from responsibly managed forests.
Stop 5: Child’s Room
We are big fans of bedrooms that can grow and adapt to the age of a child without a lot of effort. This one does just that. It’s mature enough for a teen while keeping a bit of childhood whimsy. The Honeycomb shades add to the soft, airy feel of this room while still providing the privacy one wants in a bedroom.
Stop 6: The Master Bath
This master bath is as tranquil as they come. It is the perfect spot to relax and unwind after a long day. This room is gorgeous without a lot of fuss—just clean lines, warm colors, and beautiful finishings. Light is such an important element in this bathroom so the window treatments needed to be just right. Silhouette shadings were chosen for their ability to diffuse harsh light and spread it softly and evenly around the room. They also allow the homeowner to access the golf course views while maintaining a discreet level of privacy.
Stop 7: The Craft Room
This room is just plain cool and it makes you want to create something as soon as you step foot inside. We can imagine kids actually wanting to do their homework in this room! The window treatments needed to contribute to the modern, no-fuss look of this room. Pirouette® shadings have clean, modern lines and again were the right choice. They’re also practical since the fabric vanes filter out glare for TV viewing and reduce UV rays to help protect furnishings. These shades are great for maximizing daylight hours, reducing the need for artificial light, and allowing for enhanced views to the outside while maintaining privacy.
