Nursery Decor and Window Treatments
Window treatments make a large footprint in any baby's nursery decor. Unless the baby's bedrom has no windows, valances or drapes that match the rest of the decorative accessories in the room are crucial. Once you select your theme, your bedding, window treatments and floor coverings have to follow suit.
The key to a successful nursery design is continuity. Select each decorative element of your nursery decor keeping the big picture in mind. Your window treatments should be a direct reflection of your crib set. This is not to say that the identical fabric used in the comforter should be used as your draper fabric; professional decorators mix and match fabric prints all the time. However, the STYLE of the draperies should be a good match.
For instance if you are designing a nursery for a baby girl that's decorated in white lace and ribbons, a set of tailored drapery panels topped with a valance decorated with little more than piping and covered buttons would be completely out of touch with the rest of your nursery's design. If dainty decorations are used in the rest of the nursery, the window treatments should be girlish as well. In this example, the decorating style was strictly feminine. For nursery decor that is all girl, lace window treatments are always an excellent choice. Once you give it some thought, the idea is not so hard to grasp. Ruffles and bows don't blend well with collegiate stripes and piping.
On the other hand, can you picture a gathered window treatment edged in ruffles in a masculine nursery?
Selecting proper window treatments to blend with any stylish nursery decor is no different from decorating a window in any other room of the home.
Color and style is always a matter of taste. But there are a few basic decorating rules that can't be broken. For the best chance at designing a fashionable nursery all of the decorative accessories must blend and flow seamlessly.
