Hollywood Drama

August 3, 2010

Numerous accessories/ Dramatic use of colorDrape98 was honored once again by assisting Dale Trice and his team at “Design Services of Florida” in creating a memorable living room at the Seaside Showhouse this summer.  The house benefited the Cultural Art Association of Walton County by gathering a talented group of designers who dressed each room as a tribute to various hollywood, iconic styles.  Dale and Drape98 worked to commemorate the dramatic and diverse collections of F. Scott Fitzgerald and his wife Zelda.  Apparently the couple had great interest in all things “French Riviera” and “Jazz” and loved collecting things from their world travels.  Mr. Fitzgerald had an extensive group of old typewriters and Zelda, his beloved wife and native of Montgomery, Alabama, enjoyed saving beehives originating from her family farm.  The couple also kept extensive journals including details of all their exploits and infamous dinner parties!

Dale and his team worked to recreate the Fitzgerald style by using broad stokes of color (red and black) and splashing varying shades of bronze accents and natural textures throughout.  Dale also  included numerous accessories and artful pieces commemorating the Fitzgerald love of collecting. The drapes are key in creating interior drama.  Drape98 fabricated ripplefold  panels at 80% and strung them on wall mounted, custom, black rail hardware (hiding the ripplefold track).  The rods are strategically pieced together to create the “continual” look and the drapes are puddled just a bit to create a lush look.

The showhouse was a popular summer destination.  Check out the Cultural Art Association of Walton County for more details.  (Website: http://www.culturalartsassociation.com/)
