Artist’s Studio Artist and designer Herb Pulliam’s interest in light was apparent in his choice to cover the west- and south-facing windows of the artist’s studio with dramatic, linen draperies by Carolyn Ray, Inc. The linen is a hand-dyed and -woven striae that adds visual interest. Clip-strung onto a metal cable, the drapes are also easily adjustable. “It’s simple to gather more fabric in one area and less in another to let the right amount of light fall on the canvas,” Pulliam says.

Front Parlor In this elegant space, designer David Ballas reflects the lifestyle of Tara II’s well-traveled owners with objects collected abroad, while also emphasizing the Old World charm of the house. The swagged polyester-blend draperies by Greenhouse Design exemplify Ballas’s philosophy that “you can be traditional and eclectic by using two different fabrics—one on the face and one for the lining.” The panels can be tied back or pulled entirely closed on the rings and rod.
