About Curtains Up & Décor


Deborah Smith-Martin’s 30 years experience as a master seamstress, decorator and designer, graphic artist, and photographer give her command of every step of the process, from concept to fabrication to installation.

Her mastery of this unique skill set complements with her artist’s sensibility, enabling Curtains Up & Décor to:

• Coordinate fabrics, paints, colors, textiles, and spatial arrangements to provide your home with warmth, intimacy, and flow from room to room.

• Create breathtaking, unique window treatments that are perfect for your room, knowing the technique for every pleat, fold, and hem to make sure each fabric lies perfectly.

• Envision and fashion the details—the “oohs and ahhs”—that make your home feel truly finished and special.

• Build one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted hardware, which
allow her to create fantastically elegant treatments at reasonable prices.

Deborah’s journey has been one of continuing discovery and education, mastering the latest technology, keeping abreast of current product, and deepening her knowledge of all styles: Victorian, traditional, contemporary, commercial, and other fun challenges!

Curtains Up & Décor’s window treatments were featured in the design house for Boston Magazine in 2004. Her designs were also prominent in the Big Victoria house selected as host for the 2007 Newton Historical Society house tour.


Design Philosophy

Curtains Up & Décor’s hallmark is playing to a home’s strengths, immersing in the environment, brainstorming the creative possibilities, and focusing on the details that make the design truly unique.

Every family and home has its own style and personality. Getting to know you is the key to finding the perfect approach for your home. By focusing on this relationship, Curtains Up & Décor has found its niche with treatments.

It’s my privilege to work with people who have a real feeling for the space in which they live, know the value of custom work, and crave a truly original, creative flair for their home. I respect and appreciate that I’m working in your space, and want it to be the most pleasurable experience for you—and for myself.

Knowing product expertly (from fabric to paints to hardware lines and beyond), Curtains Up & Décor procures the best materials for any price range.

No matter the budget, I invest the same hand-crafted care and technical expertise to bring out the highest level of detail in every project—and it’s always built to last.
