Do we love it? Dentil Cut Valances

  1. Babs Blog says:

    Love it! In the right space, a dentil valance is the perfect way to add a little visual interest and a great pop of color.

  2. Abby & Her Boys says:

    I love it!

  3. Hello Lover... says:

    Love it – I think it adds a bit of a tailored look to the room and makes it a bit more modern!

  4. Shannon @ What's Up Whimsy says:

    I really love it!! I might just steal this look for a future room!

  5. Bri @Meyouandawienerdog says:

    I loved them but wasn't sure I could sew them well enough for my own curtains so I did a minnie version for my dogs bed here

    I wanna try in my son's room but after doing the minnie version I realized how tedious it is.

  6. Splendid Sass says:

    LOve this post. The valances are gorgeous, and they would like just as beautiful anywhere else in the house.
    Havea nice day.

  7. Lavender and Lilies says:

    Very glam!

  8. Dagny @ Scandinavian Chic says:

    yaa, we love it! I'm especially loving it in kids rooms 🙂

  9. Lissa @ After Adornment says:

    Love them! Dentil is such a classic motif that I think can be used anywhere. Just take a look at all the classic architecture from the greeks and romans. I love the idea of doing it on a valance!

  10. Courtney says:

    eh, leave it. I'm not really a fan. They aren't horrible, but I wouldn't search out one. It reminds me of something that should belong on the edge of a Disney castle.

  11. Mrs. Chic says:

    I think they look cute in kids rooms – in adult rooms it looks like a hotel and not a bedroom

  12. liz @ bon temps beignet says:

    And dija know that 'dentil' comes from dentin…as in teeth. I guess they look like gapped out teeth.

    I think they look nice on outside overhangs. I'm sure it could look good in a bedroom if it's done right.

  13. NK says:

    They are nice, however, I wouldn't put one in my home. Not my thing at all, too "polished". However, love the last image, very glamorous.

  14. Nichole @ Parlour says:

    Yeah, Not a "valance" kinda girl. Just me though. It feels dated to me.

  15. diane@onlinefabricstore says:

    The dentil shape is a classic design that can be found in moldings in traditional homes and has been around for hundreds of years. I would use this design in a lovely formal dining room or living area as well as a bedroom. Depending on the fabric and trim it can appear very formal or playful and whimsical.

  16. Leah says:

    i've noticed them a lot too lately! i'm not usually a lover of valances b/c they look pretty formal to me, but this one i love!

  17. Laura Trevey says:

    Yes, I do love it!!

  18. Meredith says:

    absolutely love it and would love to try something like this in my bedroom!

  19. Kim@Chattafabulous says:

    These are very pretty, and I haven't given them much thought before. I say thumbs up!

  20. Laura says:

    Love it! Such a classic look.

  21. Hilary Dow-Ward says:

    Yes! Love it. I just had an awning done for my back door and had this trim applied. I wasn't in need of a valance, so I just did the next best thing!

    Love them!

  23. Tammy@InStitches says:

    I love it on the valances but not so much on crown molding 🙂

  24. bazaarofserendipity says:

  27. Emily @ Timeless Paper says:

    This weekend I was at the Juliska warehouse sale in CT and thought of you when I saw the dentil cut awnings on the shop. I just blogged about my experience and posted dentil photos for you.

    I LOVE dentil valances! So much more interesting than plain old drapes.

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
