The cornice is a padded box that is covered in fabric and if desired, a type of trim. The edges can be shaped, such as scalloped, rounded or straight. These are often favored because they can help to conceal any existing hardware that is used to hang other window treatments, thus providing a more seamless overall look in a room.
The best minimalist window treatment is no treatment at all! Unfortunately, not all of us live in an area where we feel comfortable bearing it all and we must provide some sort of boundaries to prevent our home lives from being public peek-shows. This can be done by utilizing untraditional materials such as colored glass, recycled plastics, or luxury textiles. Colorful panes can interact with the light, or a solid block of sheer fabric can produce a very understated window effect.
In interior design, a valence is a type of window treatment that is mounted across the top of a window. Typically, these are combined with the aforementioned drapes or curtains. Valences can be gathered bunches of fabric, pleated, arched wooden structures and so forth. Like curtains or drapes, valences are extremely versatile.
