Window Treatments Fit for a Princess Plus 10 Details to Include When Making your Own

Pink & Lilac Curtains for a Princess

Welcome to the powdery pink, princess abode of Princess Lily Grace!

Today I’m introducing Lily Grace. A precious 5 years old, full of spunky personality, a head full of curly red hair and a bedroom quickly on it’s way to becoming Princess-Worthy!

Along with meeting Lily Grace you will also see 10 girly-girl details to consider when making curtains for your own little princess.

Pink & Purple Bedding

1) Begin with Colors Your Little Princess Loves

When Lily’s mom, Michelle, first contacted me, she and Lily’s grandmother, Patty, had begun the process of making Lily’s room princess-worthy by ordering new custom bedding and pillows from the Etsy Shop LikeMyMotherDoes.

With all the gorgeous patterns and colors in the bedding, the window didn’t need to repeat the pattern or color but instead needed to compliment the bedding yet bring a WOW factor to the window.

Inspiration for Princess Curtains

My plan was to find an ivory sheer fabric and include plenty of little details to make these curtains extra special.

Pink & Lilac Girly Curtain Details

This 2) Beaded Ivory Sheer was the perfect starting point. The “bead” is actually a thread detail that gives the appearance of beads.

After finding the perfect shade of 3) Lilac Ribbon Fringe and a 4) Beaded Pink Pom-Pom Fringe I decided to 5) Layer Them Together along the lead edge of the curtains.

The upper edge was finished off with both a 6) Pink Ruffle and a 7) Tiny Lilac Flange.

One of the first details we decided was to hang the curtains from medallions. Of course you can’t use your normal medallions in a Princess room so 8) Custom Hand Painted Purple Medallions were the perfect choice!

I included 9) Pinch Pleats in the design because it gave us the opportunity to make the curtains fuller.

The medallion brackets were evenly spaced and mounted close to the ceiling to take advantage of the height.

The base of the medallions were painted pink to match the walls.

The loops, sewn into the pleats, were then slipped over each bracket and the medallions screwed in place.

This window is 72″ wide. By including the pleats I was able to use 2 widths of fabric per panel, 4 widths total, for a much fuller curtain.

The panels were then gathered to each side and draped across two more painted medallions used as tie backs.

Pink & Lilac Girls Room

Other princess details we’re considering for this adorable room include a canopy for above the head of the bed and possibly a custom mural.

White, Pink and Lilac Window Treatments  “I knew we’d love them but I didn’t know we’d love them this much!” -Michelle

When Michelle told me that I tickled pink! 🙂 This window treatment was one of my all time favorites to create. I loved the challenge of designing a window treatment with this much presence that still blends so well with the existing bedding but made from entirely different fabrics. I’m so very pleased with how it turned out!

And Princess Lily Grace?

She loved them! Which makes my job so awesome!

  1. They are beautiful, Sonya! Love how you tied in the pink and purple from the bedding and room itself. My 3 1/2 year old granddaughter says her favorite colors are pink and purple, too. : )

  2. Oh my gosh Sonya….just enchanting…definitely fit for a Princess as Lily Grace!!!

    Well, again, your timing of this blog was perfect. I have some fabric that I was going to use for my office window but opted for something else. I’m leaning towards using it by our dining room table that sits in front of a double window (we have an open floor plan so it’s not a formal setting.) I decided that I would make café curtains that have the fold over top that you featured a few weeks back. I was trying to decide on lining them when your blog came out this morning. Now I know what I can use without too much bulk. Thanks again Sonya. I just love seeing your ideas.
