This is a simple flat valance with inverted pleat corners and returns. It is board mounted and installed as inside mount with "L" brackets. The other thing you should know is this fabric is a woven wool plaid and also has lining so it hangs well due to the weight.

Good luck with your drapery!

I love the combination of the blue walls and the wood! - Could you share the paint color of the blue wall? Thanks!

Thank you for your inquiry. The color blue we used is in the range of Benjamin Moore Bermuda Blue #2061-30. We reccomend testing a few blues as they will dramatically change with different lighting.

Also note we kept the wonderful old wood but used a paint compliment on the new cabinetry in the room. Those brown bookcases are actually paint - this combination really created a great effect.

Good luck with your perfect blue search!

Thanks so much for your info!

I have been searching for the best blue wall color to go with the stained wood trim in my home office. We have built-in bookshelves similar in color to your wood desk as well as a brown leather sofa in the room. Your picture inspired me a lot - thanks so much again for taking the time to let me know the info!

9. Straight valance. Simple and minimal, the basic straight valance can help soften a room's hard edges and is easy to design and install. Styling tip: Your valance should hang between 16 and 21 inches, depending on the height of your window. A valance that is too short or too long will distract the eye.

short, straight valance to cover rods and top of blinds on the windows in living room and dining room of Log Land so as not to block view; a 12" drop is Max!! almost impossible to find; consider finding fabric and having them made. Maybe Mom can sew them. :-)
