Swags Made Simple

custom window treatments in a living roomUsing individual swags in creative ways brings custom style to the kitchen sink windows at right. This is a great way to decorate transom windows in any room – it provides just a touch of fabric over each window while still allowing daylight in.
Find a sewing pattern for the swag style you desire. Sometimes commercial patterns show individual swags hanging on top of drapery panels.

To ensure that the swag fits your window properly, cut a sample swag from an old sheet or piece of scrap fabric and tape or thumbtack the swag over the window. The swag can be made larger or smaller by adding to or decreasing the size in the center of the swag pattern.

QUICK TIP: Machine-stitch a hair elastic to the top of swag on both sides. Loop elastics over installed hooks or knobs, tightening elastic by tying a knot in the excess. Arrange swag folds and enjoy!

Changing the Window’s Shape

When windows appear ordinary, a simple trick designers use is to alter the shape of the window by elevating the center of a Roman shade installed in Merrimack countytreatment onto the wall above. This provides the illusion of a different shape breaking the repetitive pattern of straight lines in the room. Raising the treatment once in the center works well for single and double windows, but for triple windows you may want to raise the treatment twice along the top edge to keep it in scale with the wider width. Adding decorative details such as covered buttons on a trumpet swag draws the eye upward, especially when they’re made from contrasting fabric.

Corner Windows

Windows that are positioned in corners pose special challenges due their close proximity to each other and to the corner. These windows can be treated in two ways; separately or as one window. If the windows stand alone with space between the molding and corner, you may choose two separate window treatments, but plan to have the sides of each treatment touch in the corner. Treating the windows as one unit is often a pleasing solution as the continuous appearance of the treatment makes the window appear larger than they actually are.

Decorative Knobs and Holders

Common hardware such as doorknobs, cabinet pulls, and tieback holders can be used to hold a valance in place while providing accents to a window. Knobs and pulls are available in a variety of sizes and materials, such as wrought iron, polished nickel, copper, glass, and wood. Installing them is easy with special screws threaded at both ends so the screw can be secured into the wall and the knob. Tieback holders, designed to secure draperies at the side of a window, also can be used at the top of a window and are often larger, providing a more substantial look.

Stripe Placement

Striped fabrics are especially well-suited for Roman Shades, since the stripes can be fully extended down or across the shade to provide an interesting linear influence in a room. The bolder the stripe and the more it contrasts with the walls, the more stunning the effect. Placing stripes vertically along the length of a shade makes the window appear taller, as your eye sweep across a room and will give the window the illusion of being wider than actually is. Be sure to plan for a pleasing stripe to be featured in the center of vertical shades or at the top edge of the horizontal stripes.
