Madelyn Valance Ready To Be Installed
Unless decorative hardware is used, most custom window treatments are mounted onto a dust board that is attached to the wall. I believe every aspect of a window treatment should be custom so I cover the board with matching fabric.
Yes, I am that particular about the details and hey you never know who might be peeking to see how your gorgeous new window treatments are installed!
In order for this style to stretch the entire width of the window a seam is required. A false placket and buttons hide the seam and become a design detail. Notice how the pattern matches up perfectly.
The print fabric is a linen and rayon blend from RM Coco , one of my preferred vendors. I have their complete library in my studio.
Printed fabric is always more interesting combined with a coordinating fabric that highlights one of the colors in the main fabric. This classic custom window treatment adds a touch of the stylish Tangerine Tango~Pantone color of the year for 2012.
Micro cord in the accent fabric finish all the edges~another custom design attention to detail. The accent fabric is from Trend it’s available in a variety of colors.
Valances are hung in my studio with special under mount clamps before installation so I can inspect them to be sure everything is just right. Note-I have placed the treatments in the opposite position they will be installed, the longer cascades will be towards the ends not the middle.
If these custom treatments look this good in my studio, can you just imagine how stunning they will look hanging in your home? Maybe I’ll reveal that in tomorrow’s post!
Are you ready to bring some Tangerine Tango into your rooms?
