Enhancing your View


These windows look out onto a golf course.  The london shades cut right through the middle of the windows and the top valance cuts out quite a bit of natural light.  The client wanted to dress her windows to enhance the view while still softening the space.


We achieved a bright cheerful look with upholstered cornices that hang loose in inverted box pleats over stationary panels. 

The cornices have contrast microcord and the pleats are "buttoned up" with faux tufting.

French Door BEFORE

The cornices were mounted high to add visual height to the vaulted space.

French Door AFTER

We added custom tiebacks to the end panels to add extra detail and to allow the door to function properly.

Side Window BEFORE

The corner cornices were built out on the diagonal, and the side cornices were designed as "half" of a valance.

Side Window AFTER

Detail of custom shaped tieback.

Coordinating flat rod pocket valance for the back door has a tiny box pleated header and microcord at the bottom edge matches the contrast lining.
