There are several features of this style that you may like:
Attached valance gives you some interest near eye level while maintaining a simple presentation. We recommend trim or fabric banding at the bottom of the flounce.
Pleat choices emphasize various aspects of the design.
Two prong pleats can be pinched to the top (shown) or pinched at their base. Either way, two prong pleats are great for showing off the pattern of the fabric, because there is less fabric in each pleat. They require 2-3 more rings, so you can show off the hardware more too.
French pleats and Goblet pleats use three prongs. These are best for elegant traditional versions of this design.
The valance and trim can be used to draw your eye to an architectural feature. Here the flounce coincides with the transom windows. We have also used flounces to coordinate with arch top windows and to provide horizontal lines to direct the eye. In some instances, the horizontal line breaks randomly flowing curves or swirls (typically wall covering) .
This style can fit any width of window, because the panels simply frame it. Additional panels can be placed within the window at the divisions of the trim as in this example. Notice there is no return to the wall when the panel is over the window rather than on the side.
