I love sharing new, challenging projects. This is one of my current favorites – window treatments for bay window.
Connie had this new remodel to accommodate her large…and growing family. We needed to dress a bay window, bench cushion, pillows and coordinating custom window treatments in the adjoining great room. Let’s take a look at it.
Connie had a few requests. She did not want old fashioned looking valance. She wanted it simple, with texture, color and fabric.
For the valance that spanned a 15 foot window, we chose a large pattern and toned it down a bit with a smaller pattern pleats at the bottom. We used that same fabric on a pillow for the bench seat to coordinate it nicely. Now you should have seen me wrestle this 144″ long cushion into my van after we custom covered it. I forgot to get a picture of that, oh well. You can just imagine.
In the adjoining room we had a 2 story window. So we dressed it in coordinating, but not “matchy matchy” fabric.
Connie was thrilled. “It’s so current looking. It’s not old fashioned at all.” Now let’s see what her college kids say when they come home.
