Valance Ideas for a Girl’s Room

Geometric Valance

Bibiddi Bobbidi Beautiful

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!).

Hot Pink Ruffle Valance

Um, ruffles are just about always a good idea. You know it, I know it, the ruffles know it.

Yellow Geometric Valance

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.

Monogram Valance

Hi Sugarplum!

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.

 

Tulle Valance

Nest Full of Eggs 

Pink tulle ruffles for a girl’s room equals pretty perfect in my books.

 

Ribbon Valance

Good Housekeeping

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.

 

Butterfly Valance

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!
