Swag Valances

Looking to finish out the look of your dining room windows? How about adding a little something to the pane over your kitchen sink? With a set of swag valances, you can create a look as low-key or luxurious as you like. These window toppers tend to taper down on the ends, creating a flowing fishtail effect that frames your window. It's the perfect way to add a little pizzazz when a plain pair of panels just won't cut it!

First off, decide how much lighting and privacy you need to make the room feel comfortable. A trio of sheer fan valances allows light to stream through delicate fabric, bathing your kitchen table in inviting sunlight. Keep this room feeling buoyant and breezy with whitewashed chairs and a large pedestal table in a similar finish. A flourish of herbs in wall-mounted planters keeps the room feeling bright and organic.

If you have an east-facing window or otherwise need to manipulate the amount of lighting your room receives throughout the day, why not go for a tie-up valance? Ties on each side of the valance allow you to hitch up the fabric to let the sunshine in, or else loosen the fabric so it covers more of the window. Palm fronds and tropical flowers on pale turquoise make for a punchy print. Top it off with a collection of green glass bottles arranged immaculately in the windowsill.

What if you aim to cover the lower half of your window as well? Fortunately, you can find window swags with cafe curtains to match. This allows for a maximum level of privacy while still being able to peek outside from between your tiers and the valance itself. Pick swag valances for windows in a lovely loden green, then choose kitchen chair cushions in a deep indigo. Little pops of copper here and there—found in the tealight holders on your table, perhaps, or in the starburst sculptures hung on an adjacent wall—really tie the look together.

Swag curtains for the living room also come in an assortment of styles. One of the most popular is the waterfall valance—a series of swooping toppers that bring a regal and refined touch to windows. They also work wonderfully as dining room valances or anywhere else you might need a hint of extravagance. Find waterfall valances in platinum gray with allover medallion patterns. Work a powder blue chaise lounge into the mix for a cool-toned yet romantic aura.

Where ever you choose to add these rich window toppers, don't let the elaborate styling fool you. Decorating with curtains, valances, and swags is fairly simple. You'll need two curtain rods (or a double curtain rod capable of supporting however many panels you'll need) to layer the valance over the drapes themselves. Failing that, hanging a single valance or even a set is easy and still lends that upscale quality you've been searching for! Pick out your perfect match today, whether you're a fan of quatrefoil or subtle solids.
