Draperies, Swags & Valances

Custom Window Treatments are like icing on a cake. Color, texture and style will create different moods and feelings for both you and your guests.

Classic Draperies are energy efficient as well as decorative. You can select from a variety of headers to give a classic to casual look depending on your choice. Floral fabrics in larger designs work well on sliding glass doors since they offer the opportunity to view the full pattern. Thermal suede lining will give additional protection from the heat in the summer months and insulate during the cold weather.

Tailored Valances have replaced the ballooned and ruffled valances of the past. Clean sophisticated valances with straight lines and natural textures are a fantastic finishing touch for your space.

Roman Shades offer the beauty of a drapery with the function of a shade. It is the perfect option for the person who wants to decorate but still keep it simple and practical.

Cornices can be designed using fabrics or wood. The cornice style options are endless. Panels can be added to create a more elegant yet contemporary look. Ultimately the fabric you choose will dictate the style and feel of the room. Florals and stripes or solids can be combined to make the fabric treatment more unique. Don’t be afraid to mix patterns.

Swags and Jabots never go out of style. They are elegant and timeless, however the fabric you choose may not be. Trendy fabrics are great for guest rooms and nurseries, but if you are looking for longevity out of your new addition to your window go for a natural fabric in a neutral and work your color in through accessories. Throw pillows are a great way to compliment your new window treatments.

Design Tips:

Open up your space- Remove heavy draperies and replace with a valance, cornice or roman shade.

Create a comfortable environment for you- Choose designs and colors that you enjoy. Friends and family are helpful but you need to keep in mind that when the friends and family leave you will still be committed to your design.

Soften hard lines- Add warmth to a room and soften hard lines with drapery panels. Sometimes it is as simple as adding a punch of color or texture on the window to help warm up a room. If you aren’t looking for privacy, drapery panels will add a little drama and style to your room.

Contrast your wall color to bring in a more dramatic look.

Designing your window treatments- photos of your space along with paint samples and fabric swatches from your furniture will help with coordinating fabrics for your drapery or top treatment.
