Q. Are you seeing any trends in window treatments?

A. Valances, or cornices in all different shapes are making a come back. Remember, however, your home besides needing to function well, is all about you and what appeals to you, but if you’re tired of those plain drapes or shades, consider adding some excitement with a topping to those window treatments. There are some great new fabrics out in many different textures and patterns. So many that I’m sure there would be something that works well with what you have and can truly alter their appearance besides adding a whole new feel to your space.
