Valances, you either love them or you hate them. For me, it all comes down to the fabric used and the room the valance is intended for. If you are planning a nursery or re-decorating there are a range of valance ideas for a girl’s room. Valances can be made or bought (your chioce) and hung as-is or with modifications. The image shown above is a valance made from bedsheets (follow the link for the tutorial!).
Um, ruffles are just about always a good idea. You know it, I know it, the ruffles know it.
Follow this link and you will learn how to make a tailored valance. Which I love in this pale lemon geometric. Yellow is an understated palette choice for a girly room.
Love this! The grosgrain ribbon sewn on the curtains is an easy way to add detail to a plain set of white curtains. Follow the link and you will learn how to build the pelmet and how to monogram it.
Pink tulle ruffles for a girl’s room equals pretty perfect in my books.
This collection of ribbons makes a pretty cute valance, but there are lots of other things you can do with ribbon. Try sewing strips of grosgrain ribbon to a valance in a solid colour to create vibrant stripes. Or use it to create an edge like the curtains pictured above, but on a smaller scale.
A valance is a great way to introduce a bold graphic print like this butterfly one.
Ah, chevrons, in a small dose like a valance or a large dose like a painted floor, I lova ya! Use these valance ideas for a girl’s room as a starting point to choosing your own, or, if bold, make one! I would love to see any you make. Happy decorating!
