For a pop of color at the window, the valance reigns supreme. One of the simplest of decorative window treatments, it can be fabricated in a number of fabrics in many different styles.
These are a few examples from a home we did on Kiawah Island.
Not your average kitchen valance. Tropical print is contrast lined in a brick color fabric.
Notice the rope trim detail at the pleats
A sweet, scalloped bottom valance in a bold floral print
Gathered valance, on a curved rod, in a cream color embroidered fabric in the master bath
Beaded trim adds an elegant touch
Another fun print in the morning room
Shell motif brackets were used to install this valance in a guest bath
