The gently arched valance echoes the shape of the painted arch above, and the softly curving jabots frame this window over a jacuzzi tub. The textured ivory fabric whispers rather than shouts, and a modestly sized beaded trim adds just a touch of sparkle.
The trim's decorative braid repeats the colors found in a large floral painting on the adjacent wall and coordinates with the teal mini blind.
In the photo below, you can catch a glimpse of one of the covered boards that supports the sides of the soft cornice. To achieve the perfectly flat, smooth look that I like on this type of treatment, I use a stiffener behind the fabric, along with interlining, and wrap the three layers around the "leg" on each side. The legs are attached to the dust board at a 90º angle using L-brackets and long, thin countersunk screws. Hidden behind the jabot, they can't be seen from the front, but are indispensable in keeping this treatment smooth and wrinkle-free.
