We are always dreaming up fun and fantastic spaces here at hauthaus, and today is no different! Here you can see a snapshot of a quick idea for a little girls’ room; inspired by and for a girl who loves nature and creativity – what little girl wouldn’t want to live here?!

Our inspiration palette for a little girl's room.

We pulled Romo and Villa Romo fabrics together to act as a starting point for this bedroom. We’ll need fabrics that can be easily washed so we chose cotton for most of the applications.
This room has many spots for fun fabrics: drapery panels, an upholstered headboard, an upholstered chair, floor and bed pillows.

Color palette inspiration

The color palette is kept fun and fresh with crisp white, bright pink, light green, earthy violet, and a sky blue.
Wonder what we could dream up for you?  🙂

Before & After: sunroom

June 14, 2011

What a difference window treatments make!

Before: window treatments in the sunroom

This poolside sunroom needed a little help when it came to window treatments. We found a fabulous Kravet fabric that tied all of the colors in the room together. Our very talented workroom made our sketch a reality…

After: window treatments in sunroom

 The homeowners, who live on Lake Harriet in Minneapolis, were thrilled when the treatments went up! It really softened the windows and gave a finished look to the much used room.

hauthaus installation day

October 14, 2010

Installation days are fun days for us gals at hauthaus.

They are the days when we get to see our creative ideas and drawings come to life in our clients’ homes.  And best of all, the client can see things coming together… it’s smiles all around!  And we like that!

In this empty nesters’ Music Room, we chose to do a decorative, shaped cornice board in an embroidered silk fabric.  The colors and detail in this silk were amazing and really went with all of the other colors in the home.  To accent the floral and add just a bit of ‘edge’, we added a layer of black striped fabric, swagged behind it. 

(Also, we made sure to order enough fabric to recover an existing chair too. Doesn’t it look fab?!) 🙂

Our sewing wizard, Dawn, made sure that every window was measured twice and every detail was thought out since our plan was to mount the cornice boards on the tiny bit of wall space between the trim on the windows and the new crown moulding.  There was no room for error, and at the end of the day, the installation went on without a hitch!

She is a master with her needle and thread! And she did such a beautiful job creating these treatments. 

The end result was a beautiful music room with cranberry red walls, a gold metallic painted ceiling, and plenty of softness with the new window treatments to muffle the sounds of the piano from the rest of the house.
