When you’re decorating the windows with long flowing drapes, you might want to add a complementary window treatment in the form of a sheer scarf valance. Not only will the valance highlight the top of your window, the shimmer from the valance will add a nice touch and richness of color to your drapes. And if they are too small for your window size, simply buy two and sew them together for a great fit.

Dressing up a room always seems to be a major task. But truthfully, all you need is a few minor touches to make a noticeable difference. One of those minor touches is to add a flowing scarf like valance to your window. Usually a lighter tone, such as beige or creamy white, can make a window area “pop”. A nice touch that is inexpensive and easy to do.

Of course, a valance doesn’t provide the same amount of coverage as a curtain.
At some point, little girls seem to want a bedroom set that is centered around a theme. usually, the Princess theme is a favorite of young girls and it is not difficult to come up with a bed set, wall color and window treatment or valance that fits the bill. In this case, you might consider the color pink as your main theme focus as this seems to be the preferred color scheme young girls like. Do yourself a favor first and discuss this with your daughter just to be safe.

While some families go all out when it comes to decorating the house for Halloween, all you really need is a few decorative items to set the right mood. One such item is a Halloween valance depicting creepy scenes of scary pumpkins and black cats. Actually, there are many Halloween prints that you can buy that run the range from mildly spooky to scary, but fun. If you do opt for the scarier versions, you may not want to put them in your child’s room, unless they are old enough :).

It’s quite amazing how little it takes to dress up a room. A few throw pillows here, a splash of color there, and voila, a new look in no time. One of the ways to go about doing this is to dress up a bare or slightly decorated window area with a red scarf valance, especially if your rugs and decor are white, cream or tan colored. The bold accent of the red will throw new life into an “old” room without costing a fortune in decorator fees.
