Fun Valance Style for a Home Office

I just installed (well, not personally – my installer extraordinaire actually did the heavy lifting!) a great new valance at the home of a long-time client.  She wanted something different in her home office, and something that wouldn’t hide the architecture of the tiered window.

This is what we came up with!  Notice that the fabric pattern is exactly the same on each panel – that is a sign of good-quality craftsmanship.  It’s a very simple concept, that makes this room special.

What do you think?  I’d love to hear your thoughts!

It Doesn’t Take Much…

I firmly believe that window treatments add the finishing touch to any room.  Even for homeowners who prefer things simple, with clean lines, a top treatment or drapery panel finishes any space beautifully.

In fact, I once counted myself as one who preferred windows to be open.  I don’t like elaborate, over-the-top window treatments.  Instead, a simple blind or shade to take care of the light and privacy issues was good enough for me.

However, the longer I have worked in this business, the more I have come to believe in the power of the window treatment.  Below are a few photos of a project we just installed.  My client wanted to keep her window trim exposed, and she needed light control and privacy, as this is her master bedroom.

We opted for a custom made Roman shade, which adds softness, color and pattern to the space, as well as taking care of the privacy issues.  It doesn’t take much to add punch to a room with a window treatment. What do you think?

We had it made of a striped faux silk fabric with a gorgeous drape.  The stripe picks up all the colors in the room, tying things together beautifully.  When the shade is raised, it creates its own valance!  Simple, elegant – enough.

A Room With a View

A small sunroom with a dramatic view – and too much sun in the morning!  I just completed this installation, and I think it turned out beautifully – and, thankfully, so does my client.  The goal was to add drama to the space, to accentuate the arched window, and also to cover a portion of the arched space to help with morning sun.  They didn’t want to block out all the light – just to make the room a bit more bearable while the sun is out.  We certainly didn’t wish to take away from their golfcourse view.  Let me know what you think!
