When Shawn Johnson and Andrew East needed window treatments for five rooms of their Nashville home, they knew the team at Drapery Street were the perfect designers for the job. Between their dining room, entryway, playroom, stairwell, and guest room, many functional needs intersected with a need for aesthetic consistency throughout the home.

To kick off the project, Shawn traveled from Tennessee to Indiana for a design consultation in Drapery Street’s flagship Carmel showroom. At the consultation, 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 install 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. They 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, like in the stairwell, to be raised and lowered with ease.

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