Hot enough for you??  The last few weeks have been pretty warm in the Toronto area and we have been reminded of how custom drapery and blinds can really make all the difference in keeping the heat out and the air conditioning in.  Drapery offers the highest rating for energy efficiency when it comes to window coverings and we can help you with selecting the correct drapery lining to suit your home, lifestyle and heating and cooling needs.  We offer cotton, dimout, blackout and sheer linings to ensure you get exactly what you need in your custom drapery product.  

A double layer of protection using both blinds and over drapery can also help to make sure you are maximizing your energy efficiency and also protecting your furniture and flooring from sun damage.  By having a light filtering screen or roller blind or custom drapery sheer product closed all the time in times of high sun you ensure your heating or cooling stays put and the UV light is filtered correctly for longevity of your other lovely home products.  

Not sure what you need in the way of window coverings?  We are always happy to help through our free Shop-At-Home custom drapery service in Mississauga, Oakville, Burlington, Toronto, Vaughan and surrounding local area or by email and our online store for those that are further away in Canada and the United States (and worldwide)!  We pride ourselves on demystifying drapery and your window covering needs to ensure you get a perfect finish that suits your needs every time.  Contact us today for more information and until we speak, stay cool and get out in it before winter is upon us once again!

I'm a busy mom of 3 little ones and online shopping has become a must for me to save time in my life for the more important things.  I'm so excited to tell you that Q. now offers an easy peasy online shopping experience for beautiful made to order custom drapery!  We puzzled over the best way to bring amazing quality drapery and toss pillows at a market friendly price point and over the last year we have developed and honed our Q2 Perfect Panels and toss pillows to suit just that.  We have worked tirelessly to get the online shop up and running and it's finally here!  We can ship anywhere in the world but shipping within Canada is entirely free!  We are happy to walk you through the process of measuring and selecting fabrics and you can order fabric samples to ensure it's the right choice for your space.  We will be adding new items all the time and in the very near future you will see decorative drapery hardware in addition to the stunning drapery curtain panels and toss pillows.  

Even more exciting Julie over at Elliven Studio wrote the nicest things about ordering our made to order drapery from us!  I hope you like the store and when you are looking for perfect custom drapery that you will think of us!

I know drapery can seem like a scary beast sometimes and we get all kinds of clients saying things like "I just don't know what to put on my windows so I've still got those paper blinds from Home Depot on them, HELP!" and that makes me feel sad because we can make drapery so simple.  If you are a designer that is new or never done drapery we are happy to educate you through our Brunch & Learns or if you are a homeowner we have a few levels of service that you can use including free Shop at Home or online shopping here (starting in June!) but every level of service includes our help to get exactly what you need to have gorgeous window treatments without it being complicated, time consuming or difficult.  

Our mission is to get every step of the process right and that includes adding custom details to our Q2 Perfect Panels to make them perfect for you.  It can be so easy to customize our cobistyle Perfect Panels.  The photo below is a perfect example of how we can meet any need with our cobistyle line.

The drapery panels in the photo are a stunning Telefina fabric that is an embroidered linen in a large medallion that is just to die for but because of the cost of the fabric for the panels, the sheers needed to be inexpensive AND still have great quality and texture and that's where cobistyle Dickens panel came in:

Shown here from our cobistyle collection as a single tunnel top panel we can make it into any size, style, valance, roman shade ~ anything really to suit your space!

In the case of the sheers in the dining room we used the Dickens sheer off the bolt and made it into sheers that were 2 Fold Pinch Pleated and 10 feet wide to suit the window.  So simple for us to do this as we are manufacturing each order as it is placed so you can have it exactly how you want it!  The cost on the sheers as shown in the dining room is $675 - a great price for custom sheers to fit a 10 foot wide window!!!  The sheer itself provides privacy and light filtration and is a soft white colour which suits a variety of esthetics.  

You can also add custom details to make them your own.  Shown below with an Inverted Pleat and and a gross grain ribbon added, the Dickens sheer becomes a bit more sophisticated and tailored.  The cost is a bit higher for this labour intensive add on and also there is a cost for the ribbon itself but for the end product it's totally worth it and the colours of ribbon available are endless!


We've also made Dickens into a soft roman shade with a small valance flap and it's just stunning!  Soft and relaxed and just perfect for those windows that need a little pretty but not a lot of light blockage or lengthening with drapery...

The possibilities are endless and we would love to hear from you in the studio in Mississauga or in our email today about what you need to finally cover those windows with beautiful custom drapery.  We are happy to come out to your home and help you shop in your space too!  Hope to hear from you soon!
