Today you’re getting bonus. I’m sharing 5 different window treatments at once.
5 different variations of similar window treatments you’ve seen here on the blog.
1. Cuffed Cafe Curtain
This first one is one of my all time favorites. A favorite for 3 reasons.
This pair of fabric covered lampshades and matching lamps have just been added to The Shop at Beyond the Screen Door.
These lovelies have stood on my sofa table ever since I recovered them several years. Now I’m ready for a change and they’re ready for a new home.!
I seem to be drawn to tufted furniture. There’s something quite romantic about it, don’t you think? My Pinterest boards seem to reflect a love of tufting as well.
While not all tufted furniture has a feminine quality, like my friend Jenni’s velvet headboard and footboard, I do think it adds a touch of romance to a room.
In fact, this romantic velvet headboard was our main inspiration as we began choosing the fabrics and trims for Jenni’s pillows and window treatment.
Show of hands. How many still have their winter wreaths on the front door?
Me. I do. Raising my hand.
Actually, I have my Christmas Wreath aka Winter Wreath with a red Valentine Heart tucked into the middle of it still on my front door.
With February coming to a close and Spring just around the corner it’s time to be thinking about a Changing of the Wreaths.
This lamp sits in the corner of our living room and is currently enjoying it’s second color transformation.
When I found this little beauty at the thrift store several years ago the first thing that caught my eye was it’s height.
Have you noticed, if you move from a home with 8′ ceilings to a home with higher ceilings the first thing that seems out of place are your short lamps?
This lamp stands 34″ to the top of the shade which was a great size for our living room.
The second thing that appealed to me was the shape of the shade. An oval drum shade in perfect condition.
What I didn’t like was the color. Ugly was putting it mildly.
Do you ever find yourself thinking…just one more pillow?
Or asking, “Honey, doesn’t this sofa need just one more pillow?” But don’t take his answer too seriously because guys rarely acknowledge the need for another pillow.
“Just one more pillow.” I hear this often. I think this often.
Especially with leftover fabric. Or while perusing the remnants at the fabric store. Or perusing the pillow aisle at TJ Maxx.
This was Elizabeth’s philosophy after we remade the valances in her kitchen and family room and she realized she had left over fabrics.
How about one more pillow?
While writing this post, I found myself insanely focused on what to call this valance.
It’s not a balloon valance, though it sort of resembles one.
It’s not a roman shade, though it appears it could be functional.
A Loose Fold Stationary Roman Shade
On the other hand…
It’s droopy and rufflely.
Has ooodles of ribbon fringe and charm so it needs a pretty name.
Or maybe The Sophie. Emmaline? How about Katherine?
I know…The Anna Katherine! I have a cousin named Anna Katherine. Always thought that was a pretty name.
Can anyone say OCD?
Moving on to our valance…
One of the biggest thrills I get is when I receive an email from a reader who has been inspired by something they’ve seen here at Beyond the Screen Door.
Not just inspired but inspired to create something similar for their own home.
Now if this is your story? I would LOVE to hear about it!
Honestly! Really! Email me and tell me all about it!
Today’s pillows are the result of a reader’s inspiration and our collaboration to bring that inspiration to life.
