A Stylish Scalloped Valance

My client wanted a new look for her living room windows. This deep olive green fabric had a pretty brown leaf pattern embroidered on the face. The valance was lined with the contrasting brown color and then finished with brown piping.

Mounted underneath the valance is a Ado Wrap complete from Ado Corporation. My client purchased this a few years ago and it worked well yet so we decided to keep it on the window. An Ado Wrap is a vinyl vertical blind wrapped in a sheer. So, you get the best of both worlds! The versatility of a vertical blind to control the light and privacy and the softness of a sheer!

Here is a detailed look of the ‘bell’ or ‘horn’ placed between each scallop.

There were several other windows in this home so the valances had to be made in proportion with the size of the windows. This window was located in the foyer so one scallop worked well for this size of window.

To complete the room I fabricated a few throw pillows for the sofa to match the top treatments. My client was very pleased with the end result!
