Window Treatments for Transom Windows
Sometimes just a little fabric and color goes a long way to transform a space. In this project, my client wanted to fill in the upper windows, the transoms, with fabric and color in this family breakfast area. She was quite happy with the blinds on the lower windows.
Additionally, this is a replica of a historic home, so the trims and moldings around the windows are just beautiful. No fabric to cover this detail was permitted!
My challenge was to come up with a simple treatment that would fit inside each window opening that would also scale into a larger treatment or smaller, according to the actual window. The doorway below is an example of the need for sizing the valance.
The valance was mounted to small blocks of wood that we mounted inside the window frame to keep the open feeling and draw attention to the special architectural details.
Each valance is trimmed with a scalloped fabric applique and colorful, lush tassel fringe at the hemline.
My client was very pleased with the results and loved the cheerful effect of the additional saffron yellow and grassy green fabric in her rooms.
