"Pane-fully" Pretty  A divided-light window above the sink communicates vintage cottage appeal so beautifully that the designer repeated the architectural treatment on the upper cabinets. Crown molding and oil-rubbed bronze hardware instill more cottage character.    At the window, a simple swag softens and introduces pattern, and the deep apron-front farm sink below recalls bygone days.

A Pelmet is a decorative, stiffened valance, which may be flat or have stiffened sections or fancy shapes. A pelmet is always stiffened and interlined to avoid sagging and rippling. Welting and borders are often used to accentuate the shape of the pelmet. A pelmet can be used in combination with jabots, cascades, tails, swags, or flags.

Instead of just a valance or curtains, why not hang a swag from a center medallion over your kitchen window?  If you live in Minneapolis, we can get you started on this look with the right #ReplacementWindows.  http://www.replacementwindowsmpls.com/

Love this!  Add an arch breaks up all of the straight lines.  Great use of a large scale pattern on a small window
