We Love our Shady Ladies!

Anyone who owns a place at the beach knows to expect a stream of visiting friends and family.  As the weather cools and things slow down, it’s a good time to treat yourself to some spruce ups that will impress your discriminating guests! Sharon and Sandy, owners and designers at Shades & Draperies in Murrells Inlet, are fairly bursting with ideas. Their excitement is contagious.

“The showroom is filled with fabric samples (upward of 3,000) and more are arriving all the time,” reports Sandy. “We just love some of the newer handmade silks and toiles. A smart way to take advantage of a great new pattern is with a padded headboard, an on-trend decorating idea.”

Shades & Draperies has specialized in creating beautiful custom-made window treatments and bed coverings for more than 35 years, so some might be surprised to learn they serve up lots more than refined window treatments. Truth is they offer complete design services – floor to ceiling, soup to nuts. They will take special care to listen to your ideas, offer clever suggestions and tricks of the trade, and then put a plan in action. Whether you simply want to freshen a space – Dad’s den, a home office, a bedroom and bath – or create a dream room from the ground up, Shades & Draperies has everything you need – including vision and talent that’s been proved a thousand times.

The area’s growth keeps this dynamic duo hopping, but they genuinely love what they do.  They especially enjoy pleasing the patrons they serve. On occasion they’ll work up a design so satisfying, the client will actually ask them to retire the design. “That’s a compliment,” comments Sharon. Lowcountry Companion thinks so, too. 843.651.8177.
