A valance doesn't have to be fixed on a board. Love the fabric, the contrast trim and the shape this valance adds to the window. Great where no curtains or blind is required. I would have positioned it higher to cover the top of the window architrave.
Curtains complete a room. They help control the light, lend privacy and warmth, affirm your style, and add texture and color. Maximize their benefits with these guidelines and make your window treatments the most they can be.
