2. Scalloped. Complete a little girl's room with this feminine-infused cornice board with bottom scalloping. The fringe across the scalloped edge adds delicate texture.
Styling tip: Mix up fabric patterns in the room for a look that feels playful but not too "matchy."
3. Sculpted. Soften up any master bathroom with a highly sculpted cornice board that has curves and cutouts. Here, two coordinating fabrics were used in conjunction with piping (fabric-covered cording) for a precise, tailored look.
Styling tip: Coordinate the colors of your cornice board with scatter rugs, towels and bathmats for a put-together bathroom.
4. Tufted. Nothing says elegant like a fully tufted cornice board with buttons. Install it on top of flowing sheers (lightweight and transparent curtains) for an ethereal feeling.
Styling tip: Be careful — the more buttons you add to this style of cornice board, the heaver the tufting becomes.
6. Oversize. Create spectacular drama with an oversize painted cornice board with exaggerated edges. In this photo, the built-in window seat instantly becomes a cozy reading nook sheltered by the cornice.
Styling tip: Paint a design on the front of your cornice for a whimsical and personal touch.
9. Architectural effect. Create an architectural illusion by installing individual cornice boards between your windows rather than over them. In this picture, coordinating stationary fabric panels were added as faux columns.
Styling tip: Try using a large-pattern fabric for your cornice board instead of creating sculpted edges.
10. Theatrical. Add a visual performance to any media room or in-home theater with a dramatic cornice positioned over your viewing screen.
Styling tip: Create your own center stage by layering more fabric behind the cornice board, just like a real Broadway production.
