Determining the correct window dressings in a historic home can be a big challenge.

Beverly Hafemeister provides tips for researching the original drapery in historic homes.

Selecting proper draperies often requires an educated guess and Hafemeister guides historic house managers pulling gathered information from records and physical clues of the structure to make the best decision.

Hafemeister also includes information on replacement strategies with practical tips about budgeting and communicating with the companies completing custom fabrication.
