“Moving to Indianapolis from Chicago and remodeling two homes was part of the inspiration for starting Drapery Street. I experienced first-hand what it is like to select from the sea of options and create a space that is uniquely you. I appreciated artisans I worked with on my projects who were able to merge my ideas with their experience to create a fantastic final product. I love brainstorming with customers and helping them bring their ideas to life – within their budget, timeframe and their unique style. This is the reason we have a workshop environment that really includes the customer in the design process. People look to Drapery Street for inspiration so I am always learning and presenting new things in the design boutique. Traveling around the world, I have inspected drapes at the Ritz in Paris, the Duke Hotel in London and noting different construction techniques and fabric resources, I have found gives Drapery Street the best that the world has to offer. People have all different styles so we have created four style collections and three ways to shop. Customers can easily narrow the choices by using the window planner tool that we have created and by relying on the professional guidance of our certified Hunter Douglas Gallery experts. I have worked on all types of windows and budgets. I will never push a customer! I make sure they are comfortable and excited about the decision. I get great pleasure and satisfaction when I see “the after “. Even after thousands of windows, I am still blown away by how drapes complete a room. It makes it feel like a home.”
