100 Windows - #71

Here's a combination treatment to end the year.
This combination of swags was made for a breakfast room.  The arched window over the center window presented a challenge. I created a hand draped swag over the arch.
Then I stapled this to the tops of the boards of the side swags.
The hardware on this board was purely decorative, but matched the piece at the top of the arch.
The side swags were traditional swags with asymmetric cascades, that included one regular cascade and one double cascade.
This was definitely a "sum is greater than it's parts" kind of window treatment!
Happy New Year!!

100 Windows - #70

Just a couple of asymmetric swags.
And a close up showing the pattern combinations or rather, the striped lining of the cascades.

100 Windows - #69

I'll admit, you are going to have to look closely, but this is a very interesting idea. The body of this drapery is brown or a brown print.  Along the top there is about a 4" band of blue that matches the wall color exactly.  It's one of those details that screams "custom".

Now that it is getting colder, I'm already craving the return to warmer weather that is still so far off.
Here's a window treatment to help tide me over.
You get the beach theme by the starfish used as a holdback.  What is more difficult to see is that there are small seashells hand sewn all over this sheer.  I don't know if the drapery panel came this way or if it is a ready-made panel that some DIY'er got ahold of, but I love the idea.  Imagine what small items you could attach to a panel.

100 Windows - #67

I know you won't believe this but I have started seeing more and more balloon shades around town.
This is a cute nursery.  I love the ruffles on the balloon shade valance.  (Better to make the valance for a nursery - we don't want any corded treatments in children's rooms!!)
This particular balloon is underneath, or attached to a shallow cornice in a solid fabric with cording out of the shade fabric.
And don't you LOVE the circular crib? Totally impractical but I'll allow it!

100 Windows - #66

Here's a simple one. A box pleated, board mounted valance.
Great for such a long short window in the kitchen!
