A rod pocket window valance with a shaped hem and long sides frames this double window in our client’s home. Installed on a continental rod this valance can easily be removed for dry cleaning which is exactly what the client wanted.

The embroidered floral fabric makes the design interesting. It is completely lined to give the fabric body and helps the window treatment to hang beautifully.

Contemporary Ripplefold Drapes

Contemporary ripplefold drapes by Window Wear Etc.

More and more of our clients are loving the tailored look of ripplefold drapes. In this photo of a recently installed drape we used an embroidered sheer from Fabricut with a geometric design and lined it with a standard drapery lining. Notice how evenly spaced the pleats are when fully extended. Today there are many options of traversing hardware with ripple-fold carriers to meet all design needs for contemporary, transitional or traditional decorating. We used a Kirsch ripplefold traversing pole with contemporary finials.

In case you aren’t familiar with ripplefold drapes, they are actually flat panels with a snap tape stitched to the top of the drape. The top of the drape is then snapped into each of the carriers of the traverse rod creating the ripplefold effect. This is a very nice look for any room. This contemporary ripplefold drape was installed on our client’s kitchen slider as a one-way stack right drape. They can also be fabricated as a split drape.

Tailored Bay Window Valance

Tailored Bathroom Bay ValanceThis tailored bay window valance (click to enlarge for best view) complements the client’s decorative painted gray walls and cream colored tub and tile. The yellow and cream in the fabric brightens up the room and provides the client with an opportunity to add these colors in towels, rugs, and accessories. We chose an Ikat pattern from Fabricut and added a 2″ band in a solid gray to give the design detail on the hem. A small welt at the top of the valance provides a clean line. And, to make it easy to take down for dry cleaning when needed we added Velcro to the tacking strip. The client can easily pull the valance off and reinstall on her own without the help of an installer. Her comment……”I love the look!”

We strive for happy clients. Interior Design by Terry Kral, Allied, ASID.
