Valances: Sewing and Design Inspiration

V = Valances

One main reason I’m learning to sew is to be able to customize my home décor. Right now I only have curtains on one window, but I know one day I’ll probably want to dress them all. Since I do Internet marketing for design companies by day, I often come across pictures of gorgeous interiors. These are some of the inspiring valances I’ve seen on Houzz

I love these scalloped edges, not to mention the color palette!

These are scalloped too, but the fabric is more straight across — maybe pulled over a cornice board?

 But valances don’t have to be curvy to be beautiful. Look at this clean-lined valance in a luxurious master bath:

Maybe one day I’ll be able to sew valances like these!

    Those are some nice looking valances. I am sure you will be able to sew some just like them or even better sooner than you think.
