custom window treatment services
No more soft window treatments from a catalog
Let us design something custom and specifically made to fit your style and home. La French Goose eliminates the stress from designing window treatments. No more shopping for the right fabric and trim, sifting through swatches and samples and not knowing whether you're making the right decision. No more attempting to buy "off the rack" items only to find they don't look the way you hoped they would. With this package, we'll guide you every step of the way and take over completely once the design is approved. All you'll have to do is wait for installation day.
Our to-the-trade-only workroom offers custom drapery, roman and relaxed shades, headboards, bedding, pillows and any variation you can dream up. Each item is created just for you and will be right the first time. You will wonder what took you so long.
The price of this service is per room and includes our initial consultation to determine your needs and show you fabric swatches to get a sense of your style. We will then provide you with an idea of pricing to accomplish your goals. Should you decide to move ahead, we will manage the project through to final installation. Cost of window treatments (and professional measuring and installation) is not included and will be additional.
Custom Window Treatment Services $300 per room

Do you need a new paint color for a single room or for your whole house? Have you ever chosen a color only to paint it on the wall and have it "turn" a different color on the wall?
This is NOT how to do it.
As a True Color Expert, we will educate you on the different ways color is described. You will understand what an undertone is, the difference between "clean" and "dirty" colors, and how to choose the correct color(s) for your home. We will show you how to create flow between rooms so everything coordinates. You will also understand why it is so important to choose your wall color based on the fixed finishes and furnishings in your home.
We'll come to your home with our large painted color boards and show you the tools that make it easy to visualize the perfect color choice for your home. Let's do it!
