Dress your windows with valances!

Valances, are the best way to dress a window with out sacrificing the view. It gives your window the finished look, will add warmth to any room, and you will have your view as well.

Be creative, take a look at the drawing below, it is a proposed valance for a high school girl, her mom does not want to spend too much money since her daughter is leaving for collage in three short years, and perhaps the room will be a guest room any way.

The valance is pleated with two large pleats with curved bottom, the fabric we selected is hot pink! In side the pleat we are using a tiny black and white check fabric, and we have placed three buttons, large, medium, and small, one on top of each other, the bottom one will have the checks, the middle will have a solid black and the smallest one will have the check fabric again!

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!
