Do you have a small window in a guest room or Powder Room or Guest Bathroom ?
Make a little drama happen. And nothing will do it like a window that is screaming ;
"LOOK AT ME, LOOK AT ME", " You know I am beautiful, don't you wish you could have me ?"
I have found a roller shade kit [do it yourself-er] where you might be able to save some money.
But don't 'cheap out' on the valance/cornice. If it is a small window, it won't be too much.
Just order enough fabric for you to make the roller shade under it. Have it all shipped to the workroom/drapery maker and they will give you what you need to make your shade. [by shipping all the fabric to one place , you will save some money]
I love this valance , it is a soft valance. It has great xx detailing. And I love that look.
If you were to use it , and wanted to coordinate it with something in the room , go to
Mrs. Blanding's, because she has a chair done with this detail.
This is a hard cornice.............you have seen it everywhere, but it is a classic.
You can really jazz it up or dress it way down.
Now if you are someone who can sew, you might be able to make this. It is made to look as though it functions. It does not. You will just mount this valance as high on the wall over the window as you can [without it becoming top-heavy ]. It will give the illusion that the window is actually taller than it really is. And that is the best thing you can do in a room.
Do you see how boring it looks with out a valance or a topper ?
