Very pretty! Is the shade behind the valance a bamboo shade?

quiltmom2December 5, 2012
And what are the straps made of? They look the same as the shades. I love the pattern of the fabric. The colors in it coordinate so well with everything in the room.

Yes, the shade behind is a woven wood shade that goes up and down. The strap
s were made from a fabric that looked like the shade. Thank you for the kind comments!

I live on the East Coast so I am not close enough to Denver to use your services. However, I would love to make this window treatment myself. Can you please give me the name of the two fabrics (valance and roman shade)? Thank you.

I wish I could give you the names of the 2 products; however, when we moved from Tampa,FL to Denver CO I did not keep the files on all FL
clients. In addition, my lap top crashed when we got here, so I lost all my info. in Quickbooks. I think the woven shade came fro B and W Horizons. The fabric maybe came from Carole fabrics or RMCOCO fabrics.

It is a relaxed mock shade. The valence is stationary. It is a rectangle piece of fabric with 1.5" returns on side. The bottom is folded like an accordion and tacked behind the straps and on the returns to hold the pleats in place. The valence is mounted on a 1 x 2 wood board. I hope this helps.

Yes, the shade behind the valence is a functioning woven wood from Horizon Shades. I wanted the straps to look like the woven wood (thank you for noticing that detail!) , so I searched high and low for a solid fabric that had lots of texture like the shade.
As small as that detail is, it makes the treatment look complete!
