The Severna Park Chamber of Commerce building on Holly Avenue has a new look thanks to McFeely Window Fashions, a Severna Park company.
When Beth McFeely, owner of McFeely Window Fashions, drove by the 100-year-old Severna Park Chamber of Commerce building, she was struck by its charm and beauty, and couldnt help but notice the existing window treatments.
The building has 10-foot-high ceilings, hardwood floors and beautiful molding around the windows, McFeely said. The windows just called out for something to better complement the architecture.
So, Mcfeely approached Linda Zahn about donating new window treatments for the meeting room. McFeely is hoping to beautify Severna Park One Window at a Time, and starting at the Chamber of Commerce buildings meeting room only seemed appropriate. As a member of the Chamber, McFeely wanted to make the room even more inviting for those who meet there.
To complement the buildings architecture, McFeely chose a style called the Empire Valance, which is characterized by deep swags and was very popular around the time the building was constructed. She chose a bold fabric in deep red, with a green and gold floral pattern. McFeely presented her design to Zahn, who said it would have a dramatic effect on the room. The custom window treatments were fabricated at McFeelys workroom and installed on March 1.
McFeely Window Fashions opened in 2000 and provides design and fabrication services of custom window treatments for both residential and commercial use.
