Almost all newly constructed homes have arch windows. While beautiful to look at, arch windows can be difficult to treat because of their shape. Most designers choose to place window coverings below the arch to avoid the time-consuming task of making a curved window treatment. Some arches, however, call out for a window style to be mounted within the arched frame. Keeping the treatment design simple and understated is crucial so that the arch window remains the focus with the window covering serving as an accent.
Jabot placement on a swag treatment affects the overall finished look.
Jabots on top of Swag: Mount jabots on top of the swag when you want them to stand out as a prominent design feature. Lining the jabots in a striking contrast fabric allows splashes of another color or print to show in the folds. For further definition, outline the edges with a coordinating trim or contrast band. Since the swag will be partially hidden, keep the finished width of each folded jabot on the front of the board to 10 in. or less.
Jabots Beneath Swag: Jabots beneath the swag allows the swag to become the primary focus of the window treatment; it also allows the continuous curved swag shape to help soften angular lines within a room. For multiple swags, remember the rule of rods: Three swags are better than two, and the center swag can be positioned on top or beneath side swags.
Adorning a room with valances that are designed with ample fullness adds instant warmth and charm to the most basic of settings. Gathered topped toppers are often referred to as rod-pocket styles since most feature a stitched channel along the top edge to house a pole or curtain rod. Rod-pocket styles are easy to decorate with and can provide custom looks when properly lined and when edged with a fringe or cording. Print fabrics are especially well suited for gathered window treatment styles since the print can provide dramatic splashes of color in a room. For a professional look, shirring tape can be stitched to the back of the valance to create perfect pencil-like folds or a smocked look.
Swags Made Simple
Using 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!
