Now that you invested in custom window treatments there is no better way to show them off than to top them off with a cornice box, valance or even a curtain or drapery panel. These accessories complete the window space by adding a pop of your accent color or a unique decorative element.
Some toppers can be changed seasonally to reflect the season. For example, choose softer shades of your accent color in spring and summer, then opt for heavier shades in fall and winter. Around the holidays, you can add the colors of the season or add a bit of shimmer. Swap accent pieces like throw pillows, throws and accessories seasonally, too. The difference will freshen your decor, lighten your mood and make your home the envy of the neighborhood.
Below, you’ll notice that the asymmetrical cornice not only adds visual interest, but it serves a functional purpose. The higher section is over the door giving more clearance for taller guests.
