A child room with a room to grow!!!

It is always a good idea to design children rooms with the idea that it will work for now and can last for many years to come. Keeping that in mind the design must appeal to the child,and still can look good and appropriate for the future.

This client from Naperville, Illinois wanted to have Butterfly Roman valances for there girl’s room, keeping in mind that the window treatment will grow with her and it will work for the next 5 years or more.

The fabric can work now and for the teenage years, the purple fabric has that French flair to it with messages and quotes, she loves it and she was so excited and thrilled to see the design and colors, the treatment  will be perfect for later as well. The bows gives the treatment a feel of whimsy and adds a girly touch, yet it can be removed in the future for more sophisticated mature look.

A girl’s bed room gets an interesting valance!

When I get the request to design a child’s bed room, I get really excited!!!!

Recently I got a call from a Naperville resident to design a valance for his 10 year old daughter, he mentioned that his daughter is into sports and very athletic, she is not much into pinks and frills, she likes her window treatment clean and simple.

He also mentioned the need for shades to keep the sunlight out, to help his daughter to sleep in on weekends and Holidays.

The valance design consisted of four separate parts connected together with lace that resembles athletic shoe. Each part had a curved edge on the bottom of the valance to add that softness and femininity.

Two shades (Room darkening, Applause shades by Hunter Douglas) was provided to keep the sun away as well as providing saving on the energy bills, which came as unexpected bonus to the dad!
