European Grandeur - Classical Residence I'm hired occasionally by architects for specialty projects like this. I was encouraged to present the Pippins with a romantic, opulent, Italian Renaissance-inspired drapery design. I created a hand drawn rendering of a historic design, printed it on parchment and mailed it to them with a cordial hand written note. I was instantly commissioned to put this design together for four sets of large French doors along the grand hall of their classically designed new home. The Tudor style master suite was next in queue.
