Fitting with room’s color-blocked flooring and furniture, valance’s success hinges on its stylized cascades (the pieces that hang down), and the stark orange outline, which provides contrast and a clean line.

Michelle: "Valances are homemade: a long piece of fabric, two and a half times the width of the window, and, in this case, 14'' high, with fabric tabs (hanging loops) every 14 inches.

That leaves you with a hanging piece of valance after the first and the last tab that you simply turn in to form a loose cone shape. You just have to add the trim and decorative buttons if you want to emulate what I have done in the photograph. The first picture attached will give you a better idea, although the rods are white now, because I had to adapt the color and design to some new furniture, as shown on the second picture. Personally, I have never liked straight flat valances, and since I have to have some to visually heighten the windows on this side of the room, I think having "rolling" soft ones is an elegant compromise. The valances are made out of a "matelassé" coverlet in 100% cotton. I love this material, because it is thick, textured, comes in pure white and allows me to make curtains or valances, without any seams. No other fabric sold by the yard would give me, at least, a 90" wide piece of material to ...
