sundays with ydp newHey friends, I’m just back from an amazing camping trip with over 1400 women who want God to be at the center of their lives. We worshipped, made campfires, spent time bonding in small groups and set aside time alone for peace and solitude.  Mother nature was showing off, as the grounds were beautiful and the weather held up for us.  It had rained the entire week, but for this event, the sun greeted us and it was awesome.  women's camp

I mentioned this , because this post should have been scheduled to run at 9am this morning.  Oopsies. Thanks for reading along,  and I hope you are inspired to try a new way to dress your bay windows.

Bay windows afford many options for styling.  Many homeowners like to use blinds for privacy and light control, but when it comes to styling the window, they are often unsure of what to do. Here are a few ideas to consider.

THE BAY WINDOW

1. ADD SINGLE DRAPERY PANELS TO FRAME EACH WINDOW

The left treatment is Styled with 5 single drapery panels. Hung with 1 center rod, and 2 side rods connected by elbows in each corner.

2.  ADD A PAIR OF PANELS TO EACH SIDE OF THE WINDOW, LEAVING THE CENTER OPEN

The side windows are dressed with a pair of drapery panels on each end, giving the room an open airy feeling.

3. SOFT ROMAN SHADES

The left diagram shows how Soft roman shades outside mounted can add a relaxed vibe.  Cordless shades are a safer option in households with young kids and pets.

4.  INSIDE MOUNTED ROMAN SHADES

The right diagram shows how inside mounted roman shades can add a clean lines to a room.

5. TREAT THE OUTSIDE AREA OF THE BAY

The area above the window can be used to hang drapery rods just below the ceiling and adding panels on each side. This creates a stunning and dramatic focal point by adding height to the space.

6.  ADD A VALANCE FOR A MORE FORMAL LOOK

Instead of having a rod appear across the length of a window, some clients would rather hide it.  This is where a valance comes in.

Here’s a peek at 2  recent projects.
