Designing Gold Medal-Worthy Window Treatments 

When Olympic gold medalist Shawn Johnson and her husband Andrew East needed window treatments for their Nashville home they reached out to Drapery Street. They had a lot of spaces that needed window treatments including their dining room, entryway, playroom, stairwell, and guest room. While each space had its own functional needs, they wanted the aesthetic to be consistent throughout the home. 

To kick off the project, Shawn traveled from Tennessee to Indiana for a design consultation in our flagship Carmel showroom. At the consultation, Drapery Street designer Erika Reimer guided Shawn to the treatments that would meet all of her functional needs and style goals. Together, they selected fabrics that would complement the East’s other home decor and put the finishing touches on their home.

Next, the Drapery Street team traveled to Nashville for the installation and big reveal! For the glass front door and sidelights, Shawn and Andrew wanted something that would offer privacy while setting the tone of the home. We designed functional draperies that match the light and airy interior of the rest of their home and that can be closed as needed for privacy.

Functional drapes were also hung in the living room to allow the family and their dog to easily access the patio while providing privacy at night. Hunter Douglas shades were added throughout the home to provide privacy from the new house being constructed next door. Automation technology allows out-of-reach shades to be raised and lowered with ease.

We used automated fusion shades in the stairwell. Our fusion shades use a unique weaving process that allows a shade to appear white to the interior of the home and black to the exterior of the home. This allows the shade to blend into black frame windows or tinted windows when they are viewed from the street but still match the interior colors of the home — a perfect choice for the East’s home.

Shawn wanted something whimsical for the kids’ playroom. We selected a couture Schumacher fabric and added pom-pom fringe to create playful draperies and Roman shades
