Valances....in or out?
I have 2 rooms (guest rooms) that I have valances in. I do notice the trend of only panels on windows. A friend was over recently and we were talking about it and she told me she thought valances were dated. But sometimes I feel panels are too formal.
Opinions? BTW, my valances are from Country Curtains. One is a double window and scalloped (gingham check) and the other is a single window, tailored ticking stripe.
