Beth notes that each consultation is unique, but some stand out as unusual in some way.

For example, their most recent challenging project involved installing draperies over 20 feet long, requiring the use of scaffolding, while their latest elaborate endeavor featured a stunning traditional formal dining room window treatment with silk draperies and board-mounted swags.

One of the most enjoyable experiences was working with Amy & Steven List, creating a casual yet elegantly styled space with shades, draperies, café curtains, and custom upholstered pieces.

The photographs shown on these pages are of the Lists’ Ashton Grove home and, Beth says, “reflect a blend of casual elegance with a Ralph Lauren vibe.”

“Customer satisfaction is our priority,” Beth says. “We strive to exceed expectations, making the process enjoyable from consultation to installation. I love what I do, and I hope that is conveyed to my clients through my commitment to give each client the best service and products.”
