Bubble 1

Robin
It looks like your make good head way on Bubble 2 and I like all the colors. Beth is working on getting throw pillows and a rug for Bubble 1 to add color. We are enjoying Bubble 1 out here in Huntington Beach. I have had to work for the last 2 weeks and now will have some time off -- I hate it when work gets in the way. We hare taking Bubble 1 down to the beach this week and have dinner. Will send picture.

Carl and Beth

Robin, I'm not certain what you mean by a double pleat, to me that would be a pair of pleats then a space, another pair of pleats, then space, etc. I think you may be speaking of "fingers" in the pleats, is that right? For instance, the most common of pleats are called pinch pleats and they normally have three fingers and are called "three finger pinch pleats" (this is getting a little technical, I know), but there are also "two finger pinch pleats". (By the way, I call my pinch pleats "French pleats", just a little nicer name for high-end work.)

I'm going with talking about the number of fingers in your pleats: a part of this discussion would cover fullness of your draperies; you can add fullness by having a little larger pleat (meaning more fabric in each pleat), but also having another finger in them allows more fabric without having the bulk of a larger pleat which would stick out into the room further, thus fullness too. Considering this is a Bubble and tight spaces, I'm wondering if you want to keep fullness to a minimum and are really having the fabric to add color and texture/warmth. I'd probably go with a two-finger pleat.

In our Bubble I've been thinking of fabricating Roman shades which have a clutch system of components and are raised/lowered by a continuous bead chain -- no cords/cleat. We'll have the fabric for added color/texture/light blockage (I'll use blackout lining), and they will stay flush with the wall; I may have to use a small bracket on the bottom to keep against the walls if necessary.

it's a foreign language

All these sewing terms are new to me. The double pleat I was trying to describe is the type used in Airstream of the past...present too. The drapes with pleats at top and bottom. It gives a more formal appearance I think. I agree...keep the billows out. The drapes have to be close to the walls/windows. I am waiting now for the right color to materialize. Going with that teal on the seats.

California transplant

Thanks for the update Carl and Beth. I was beginning to worry about not hearing from you after your "learning curve" first trip. There will always be something to work out with both yourselves and the Bubble. It will all settle in. I am glad you like #309. I got the Texas plate..THANK YOU! Now I may just have to put it to a good use...NO! NO! NO! I will finish up this one here and come visit...a family photo at the Beach.

I know I probably gave you too much info, but it's just normal for me. In my work, I must get to the bottom of what the client is picturing/wanting to make certain I am envisioning the same end result. Most clients don't know the correct terminology, and if I assume they know, I could end up delivering something completely different than what they had wanted. If that happens, I am the one who has to reorder fabric and refabricate the job, all on my dime, so I've learned to provide plenty of pictures as well as explanations.

In seeing what you've selected already, you have good taste and I'm certain whatever you choose will look great. (In my opinion tho (and strictly my opinion), as we've both already said, I'd go with less fullness on the window treats due to the small interior.) Are you going to allow the bottom of the window treats to hang loose, or are you planning to attach them as AS does?
Again, I'd probably do the two-finger pleat.

I was briefly a little caught up on the red in your countertop, but then when I looked back I realized you have that tied in with the upholstery fabric, that's good. That teal is a really relaxing, calming color, and I think that will work well in there.

Deb

That is looking great. Like that you used the same material for the bed/mattress. That way it can be used for extra seating if needed and still match the interior.

clean up work

While I wait for the curtains/drapes I changed out the screen door locks. I use Perko stainless where I can. These look good to me and work GREAT!

I am sick and tired of seeing these gate type latches on Airstreams.

Tired of the ugliness...I am trying this...I use Perko marine stainless and stainless hardware.
