Creative cornice window treatment

A custom cornice was designed for a young artist! She is very creative, artistic not only in painting, she is an amazing dancer, she loves animals, and she has a collection of masks displayed on the wall that represents Central America’s culture.

The room was painted in deep blue, and the room backs to a yard with many trees.

Here was the challenge: The room is dark and has no definition, and the design has to appeal to my young client to reflect her artistic personality, her love of animals and birds, and her love of the culture of Central America.

 

The design included a cornice that was made from three sections, the sides on the left and write projected a bit forward, more than the middle section that almost resembled two columns.

 

A light blue fabric was used for the cornice to create a definition to the window, the two sides were embellished with real feathers that were inserted in the center. The color of the feathers was deep red that popped out to draw the attention and a printed linen panels were installed under the side cornices to provide further definition to the window. The fabric was printed with feathers in different sizes and various colors of blues and aqua. The finished product was unique in design and material selection. Our young artist was very happy. I am sharing what testimonial I have received from her mom.

Her mom wrote a testimonial on Houzz:

I asked Susan to create a window treatment for my teenage daughter’s bonus room. The room lacked direction and theme. Susan took the time to really get to know my daughter and interviewed her to get a sense of her interests and desires. My daughter’s love of animals and art inspired
Susan to create a window treatment that is an art piece in itself. She incorporated beautiful feathers on a 3D valence! This room was once without direction, but now is personalized and inspirational- exactly what my daughter wanted. Thank you Susan!

Window Covering is more than just a window covering!

Seems like ages ago when what you hung up in front of your windows were simple curtains. Over the years though, so many incredible designs, styles, fabrics,  technology and innovations have turned “curtains” into the most elegant and personal statement you can make when it comes to home decor. With options like creative valances, sumptuous cornice designs, acres of fabric, gorgeous ornamentation, hardware or tassels, and the look and feel becomes pure luxury. The key is finding and selecting the perfect fabric to achieve your design goal.

 

Casual elegance can be achieved with textured fabrics. Shimmering silks, blends and new synthetics can bring an elegance that makes your rooms shine. Multi-layered effects help achieve depth at any window. Add fabric sheers, shadings, and blinds beneath custom-designed draperies and you’ll be making the ultimate décor statement.

Selecting the proper window coverings can be a daunting task. There are a lot of things that need to be considered; the architecture of the window, the style of the room, privacy, sun control, fabric type, function, and hardware. There are many options available on the market today and window coverings have never been more important and cost-effective.

Window coverings can provide energy efficiency in a home as well as privacy and security. They can protect your furniture, flooring, and artwork from the damaging rays of the dun. The cellular shade provides full privacy, blocks harmful UV rays, and softly filters in light for a beautiful effect. And the best part is that it comes at an affordable price.

 

The honeycomb construction of this blind allows heat to be trapped in its core keeping your room cooler in the summer and improving the efficiency of your air conditioner. In the winter, this blind traps the drafts, preventing the cold air from entering the room.

Window coverings take your décor to a new level. A naked window at night becomes a big black hole and can make a room feel cold and empty. Fabric on the window is an easy  add on, an interesting way to introduce pattern, color, texture, interest, balance, and beauty to a room’s décor.

 

Often clients say that they don’t want to cover their windows because they enjoy their view. Privacy and sun control aside, a simple, well designed window covering will actually frame the view, enhancing it while providing a certain look and coziness to the room. In my opinion, no window should ever be bare.
