“Banding” is strips of fabric sewn to the edge of draperies or valances and is a great way to bring another color into your window treatment.
I love the banding on this one by massuccowarnermiller. It makes a plain box pleated valance really pop !
We just installed this faux roman shade for a designer in a bathroom and used 7/8” grosgrain ribbon for the trim instead of fabric.
Here’s a close up of the detail in the design…………
The pattern was repeated on the shower curtain…………..
I love the Schumacher wallpaper with the leaping zebras ! This room reminds me of the bathroom in my very first home with the black and white tile floors, except my wallpaper was straight up zebra print.
This is a sample I was working on for a roman shade, the actual banding fabric was orange and it was a great contrast to the off white Quadrille toile fabric.
The biggest decisions with banding are…. Do you want to inset it or have it on the edge ?
How wide you want it ? Most of them are between 1” and 3” wide.
I keep finding photos on my phone that I haven’t blogged yet, here’s one with a Greek Key trim that is inset.
My Pinterest is full of beautiful examples of banding, come have a look and follow me if you haven’t already.
