I want to change up my front room, but I also don't want to spend a ton of money as well. It's why my mom suggested that I try changing the window treatments I have. I like that idea of having a pleated drape, but I'm also thinking about having blinds underneath it.

Love all your suggestions I’m having such a hard time I got plantation shutters all inside my home now I’m fed up and think they are to boring. I would like to add drapes, or cornice to my little girls room and make the window the focal point before I start with furniture. Need ideas. She’s 16 months I want her to love being in her room and not make it look dated more of a shabby chic. But also don’t ask me why when we painted I wasn’t expecting yet and did black trimming and suddle pale yellow in room. How to work with that or do I need to paint room?

A split arch gathered valance? That goes back to its original shape after the shutters are open!?
