Complement Drapes With A Valance
Add a custom look to windows.
A fabric valance like this turns a ho-hum window into a showstopper. Ribbon trim that echoes its shape creates the effect of millwork and brings an architectural element to the room. Contrast the contemporary valance with full-height drapes in a traditional pattern — keep the look tailored by allowing them to just skim the floor.
