Many clients have been stepping into Grace Place, the new home décor shop in Anderson, and asking owners the same question: “How can I change the look of a room without a lot of expense?”
Carol Grace and Cindy Darlington, both retired teachers, quickly point to the window treatments dressing the panes of glass around the shop. Although they have a reputation as being expensive features in a room, window treatments have become affordable due to one little adjustment.
Tailoring bolts of fabric into custom sizes with pleats or drapes or swooshes is what causes the costs to skyrocket. Grace and Darlington have specialized in creating curtains without the fuss.
“I don’t think I can do that myself,” said one customer, looking at the fabric hanging beautifully around the window.
“Sure, you can,” replied Darlington with confidence. “We’ll show you how. Anyone can do it.”
“We want to help people become their own decorators,” said Grace, also owner of A Touch of Grace, a custom draperies and evening and bridal-wear business. “We work with them individually.”
