We used an embroidered faux silk fabric to fabricate and create relaxed hem roman valances to complement this beautiful kitchen. The colors of the embroidered floral and leaves pattern in reds, golds, and greens provides additional color for the room complementing both the tile surrounding the fireplace and around the wall of cabinets. Adding a relaxed hem to this valance softens the look of the windows. This is a very pretty design to dress up windows. Simple and elegant!

A custom scarf treatment is a great way to treat a triple arched window like this one and is easy on the budget. I designed this scarf treatment using decorative crown hardware with hold backs and fabric knots. The embroidered fabric has a hidden seam in the center to turn the fabric pattern so that the pattern looks the same on both sides. I used a standard lining on the back for a clean look from the outside. The lining protects the fabric and gives the treatment body.
Some windows shouldn’t be covered or dressed with drapes or valances such as this bank of beautiful windows. The homeowner still needs privacy though, so we dressed these windows with cordless Duette honeycomb shades from Hunter Douglas that coordinated with a paint color we picked. No dangling cords and a clean look to cover the windows for privacy when needed is all that was required. When the shades are raised all the way up they stack tight and practically disappear. This the is perfect application for this fabulous window.
