Ideas of Bay Window Valances

The bay window is such a large piece of the room that it demands to make a statement with valances. There are several ideas of bay window valances. The first idea is place a simple box valance over each window, covered with padding and fabric that matches the paint on your walls. If your walls are off-white or beige, choose a subtle floral print in two colors, with the background color matching the wall paint. This will dress up your window without drawing too much attention away from their structural beauty.

If you have modern decor, place a sculptured valance over each of your bay windows. A sculptured valance has a hem with a wide-wave edge. Create them in colors that contrast with the trim. Consider trimming the hem in a contrasting colored piping, or choose a metallic fabric trim for a touch of drama. Then, for a cottage-style decor, find some faded, antique toile fabric or another type of vintage floral fabric, and create a set of valances from the material. Make a single scalloped edge that drops to the center. Hang an antique tassel from the lowest point.

Another ideas of bay window valances is purchase ready-made lace valances, which are available in standard window sizes at department stores and discount stores. Choose sheer antique-style lace valances to give your bay windows a quaint, feminine look. Or try a pleated valance for a tailored finish for your bay window.

    Regretfully, I bear to disagree with all negative comments. This riveted metal coffee table is a “Design” master piece, placed in a loft area it would be an outstanding addition to any current decor. It is unfortunate, this coffee table is not available on the Wisteria website…but I will continue checking in, in case it is revived and I absorb an chance to same….

I bear no interest in putting down aesthetic hardwood and then having to a fortune covering it with rugs because I living with wood floors. Can you some healthier carpet options? Not everybody hates it so passionately and some greener options would be distinguished appreciated.

    The drapes are and the color goes cute with the walls. But, three problems:1) They are not enough for the two windows. You need to two more panels them (or, if that proves impossible, a different panel to partner them with.2) They are TOO SHORT!!! To fix this, fabric (think non-velvet and a coordinating color) and add panels to lengthen the curtains to floor length. The panels can at the top or bottom, your choice.3) The hardware is wimpy. something and substantial, maybe one long rod spanning both windows. rings for the the curtains.

    these things really nice, and are a fun, lush looking garden. but, in reality, their footprint is no smaller than a flat garden that has the same amount of growing space.

    why you say this is only a mock-up? why cant it be real? we certainly the technology to beget a cell phone diminutive enough to fit in this to 4×11 bits: a 3-bit number will only be as high as 7, therefore a 4 bit number (max of 15) is needed, tho having 6 possibilities unused (could perhaps be conventional as some sort of configuration)as far as reading the holes, there are several possibilities:1) having a exiguous IR LED at each hole and a IR sensor antonym the card. if there is a hole, the sensor reads IR, if no hole, no sensor.2) mechanical levers which lay against the card. if there is a hole, they are permitted to lean farther, therby opening or closing their circuit. care would bear to be taken to that the cards not on the levers.

    I would definately check out the heat coming from the fireplace – I noticed with my high def tv that it is quite hot already without a coast of heat hitting it from a gas fireplace that could average around 90 degrees. I would it would marginalize the performance of the tv quite a bit, fair as a room does.

    I agree that the brown rug is a bit bath mat-ish and that introducing a pattern into the room is a idea. I personally would for some throw pillows as a cheap to pull things together, but here are a few inexpensive rugs from ebay that might work for you as well:

    Wow, what a range of comments and opinions 🙂 I welcome them all. And thank you for viewing and taking a moment to write a comment or suggestion.This was an conception we had, which we wanted to fraction with DIY community. I am it can be adjusted in many ways. Neither of us is a carpenter but we knew we needed more storage in that hallway so we tried to figure something out the best we could. We had time to conclude this project and I agree there is many ways in which the execution could be improved.To address the command of the hallway being dark, there is a window above the doorway, the ceiling is high and the wall is painted light color and has a mirror.Some of the comments mentioned building code violations and possible dangers to toddlers etc. thing. However, one always relates to their and circumstances. Our kids are older and there is no such danger. But you may be that we may to it when we to sell. I wanted to include the of “the other side” but the AT Before and After limits the number of photos one can post. If you are I am to fraction these photos via these links;

    It makes me comfortable to discover they are a in partnership with Whirlpool, but its IKEA. It took me a LONG time and a LOT of reviews to trust IKEA kitchen cabinets. Im it would the same for me to trust their appliances.

    I would be more concerned about laws that protect us from ourselves. thanks to California then federal regulations we sleep on mattresses that to be treated to self destroy after being tested with an flame in excess of 1000degrees(even “organic”ones) without long term testing of the health effects of 8hour a day exposure.

    Regarding the medicine cabinet (and by that, I mean any bathroom storage) – I know from a discussion forum that almost every woman has tons of beauty products. I a friend who is a hair-product-addict. Although I am not exactly a beauty product hoarder I declared moratorium on any purchases until the stuff gets up.For example, I a few tubs of Body Shop body butter in the fridge which are now probably 2 years conventional ( the store had a rare special on 1, 2 free or something that, and since the body butters are approx. $20 a tub, it was a deal too to pass).I pulled the first one out only a week ago (I had others that were not in the fridge that had to be up first). It is tempting to a current shampoo, a facial cream etc. capture try not to until you out.

    The Frisco TX IKEA is terrible. Lots of children running around with absolutely no supervision. Parents who their kids are learning by exploring instead of realizing that they are in a of business, not a playground, and a amount of behavior should be enforced.

    A of doing this on a budget is to a comfortable, classic-shaped neutral- colored sofa you can afford and upholster the cushions in one of the attractive Josef Frank textiles. Or even pile up Josef Frank covered cushions along the back.

    A trick taught to me by a professor: up a finger or two to block the scheme of any elements you might are unnecessary. If the area is better without them, assume them out.I also agree with some of the other posters: this room needs a focal point and has too many items in not extremely blooming relationships to the things around them. Needs editing, grouping, and a change of scale.Personally, as as I admire the wall color, the b/w version looks more to me.

    My wife and I purchased a modern-design last year. We aside what seemed to us at the time a hefty budget for furnishing the home. Then we started shopping. Wow. What a shock!We went from the (Ikea, Crate and Barrel, etc) middle (Room and Board, Restoration Hardware), to high (DWR, Ligne Roset). Sat in every type of sofa, chair, and so on.Talk about confusing. Is a sectional from Ligne Roset (think $10k) really that better than one from Ikea costing ten-time less ? Does it last that distinguished longer?Then I had the following epiphany. While sitting in a beautifully made lounge chair at our local library, I started thinking about where they got their furniture. So I started checking around, first by peering underneath the chair to which companies involved. I also did this at nearby schools, medical clinics etc. My thinking was this was the stuff made to last.And you know what, there is a whole industry – mostly USA based – who accomplish contract furniture for public settings. Several of these companies are well-known, Herman Miller and Knoll, but there are another 20 or so companies doing the same thing. The thing is that you can their brand lists and brochures on-line. In many cases, you can to the rooms to sit in the furniture.It was through this process that I began to the exact cost of making well-made furniture. So what does a well-made lounge chair cost? Basically between $2-3k, depending on the fabric. So now I understand why a sectional, one that is designed to last many years, and is going cost $10k.
