For Well Over a Decade DrapeStyle has Manufactured the Finest Custom Drapery Available for Designers and Homeowners in the US and Canada

Combining Drapery Valances with Hunter Douglas Silhouettes.

So, we don’t really promote our Valances very often but we really love these that we did for a Client in New Jersey.  Valances can be such a great way to add a decorative detail without adding “too much” heavy fabric or drapery.  The Designer and Our Client decided to go with Hunter Douglas Silhouettes Soft Roller Shades on all of the Windows.  The Silhouettes are fine but can be very, very, shall we say “bland” when they are by themselves.  So, the Designer specified a Custom Window Valance Treatment to go over the top of the Silhouettes.  This gave the Client the best of both worlds, they wanted the privacy and simplicity of the Silhouettes with a little more customization and detail that we were able to provide with the Valances.

We made the Valances in Pebble Dupioni Silk, Lined and Interlined with an Inverted Pleat.  We added our Windsor Braid as the decorative element to the edge.
