Valerie’s family room is modern and highlights many geometric patterns. The valance fabric was one Valerie found when we were shopping and just had to have. We were told it was discounted, but I went to work on finding it for her and found just enough yardage. Out of the fabric I made valances with a streamline style, banded at the bottom with pewter taffeta. The metal candle holder/art piece fits the niche over the fireplace like it was built in.
The valances are mounted at ceiling height to make the windows look taller and give the room a lift. We had enough of the fabric to make functional draperies for the glass sliding door. In the corner is a light box with amber glass that adds height and another geometric pattern.
This window seat really shows how to mix patterned fabrics. I used a large scale stripe, one main print and solid colored velvet for the bench pillows. These are all setting on a fun octagon print for the bench cushion.
The star of the drapery hardware is the Cylinder finial with bubbles suspended in acrylic. This was another of the details Valerie fell in love with for her room. The rod is from Design Elements Metropolitan collection, we used the smooth steel pole, plain rings, basic bracket and the cylinder finial all in the Brush Brass finish. Valerie says, “I will be enjoying my retirement relaxing in my newly designed family room.”
