learning the ropes: window treatments

You know you are getting old when you are reading tutorials on naming conventions and types of window treatments. I never imagined a time in my life I would be lusting for drapes for my windows at age 23. Le sigh, just a sign of growing older. Did you know that there is legit a type of drapery called swag?? Very princess-y.

The part of the drape shaped like an ellipse is the’swag’

Then you have a valance…

The two are very similar but the main difference is that fabric is used to completely wrap a solid surface in a pelmet box. A valance fabric that hangs from a solid surface but is not upholstered like a pelmet box.

Ultimate inspiration is Bailey’s bathroom in their Austin home…
