Go Long

No, we're not tossing the football, we're talking window treatments.  Long drapes serve a multitude of purposes when it comes to interior decorating: visual height, visual softness and acoustics quickly come to mind when I make the decision to go long or short.

Enjoy a few of my favorite concepts when it comes to the shape and details of drapery at the windows!

Coming in with a contrast border and slight bell shape on the corners allows for subtle details when using solid colors.

I like this concept because it illustrates how to use drapery and roman shades together when you have doors and windows.  Again, a solid contrast border now helps to detail a patterned fabric.  This inverted pleat construction ont he valance is one of my most used styles.

The inverted pleated valance gets a little something extra with the decorative tape used to detail the design on the surface of the valance.  Love!

I love the softness of the curves on the valance...quite the effect in this dreamy bedroom!

Love, love, love the shaped edge detail on these panels!

Embroidery or decorative trim can provide a great detail on the leading edges if you're looking for simplicity, yet small amounts of detail.
