Designer Spotlight: Debhelin Designs

Cloud Nine Finials on 3"D Smooth Pole in Old World Gold

It is always an honor when customers like Debbie Millet with Debhelin Designs share their works of art with us. Debbie is located in Louisville, KY and her designs are outstanding. She has a keen eye for color blending and great attention to detail.

One of the main architectural details above is the chocolate coffered ceilings and amber chandelier.  Debbie accentuates these features by adding drama with large 3"D poles and Cloud Nine finials.  By installing the pole high above the window, it draws the eye up into the beautiful ceiling.  By choosing the Old World Gold finish, she has not only incorporated the chocolate/mahogany color, but also the amber chandelier with the gold accents.

Fall Reflections Hold Back in Rubbed Gold
Arched windows can create design challenges.  This hold back treatment is a wonderful solution. It softens the hard lines and stark white trim by placing drapery panels on either side.  It also leaves the view open to be enjoyed by all.  Matching hold backs were used on both panels below to elegantly tie the drapery panels back.  Beautiful!

Fleur de Lis Hold Back
Top treatments are very popular in window design.  They are frequently used in kitchens and bathrooms.  Debbie does a wonderful job anchoring this treatment with dark finished Fleur de Lis hold backs and dark fringe.  This not only ties in with the furniture in the room, but also, stabilizes the light colored fabric from fading into the wall color. 

Isabella finials on 2"D pole
And, yet, another amazing treatment from Debhelin Designs!  This one-sided swag on Finestra wood poles balances the weight of the cherry built-ins in this room.  It creates a warm and inviting space and allows our eyes to focus on the room's main architectural details, the mahogany woodwork.

Debbie, your work is inspiring!  Thank you for sharing!
