The guest house main floor is all open, so all treatments are visible with no walls in between.
In the living room, four mock hobbled valances, which I learned to make from Ann Johnson's webinar, are perfect- vertically, the pattern flows naturally, and horizontally, marches around the room very impressively.
On the other side are soft cornices for the kitchen- I pulled out Donna Skufis's video to refresh my memory on how to fabricate this style.
For the four valances, the ikat-look China Seas fabric was railroaded. I was thrilled with how well the pattern lined up! Four valances around the room was pretty impressive.
The soft cornice mockup was equally invaluable.
I learned that I needed to reinforce the fabric with fusible stabilizer (from Rowley) to support the diagonal cuts that go directly into each internal corner, right down to the quick! Scary!
For a very tall window in a narrow space, this plain, tailored valance is 24" long.
