Bathroom window finished, finally close to finishing the remodel

Excuse the double post from the decorating forum.

I'm sure it won't be to everyone's liking, but I've finished the bathroom window. You may recall the remodel I did two years ago, but I've been struggling as to what to do with the window and how to tie everything together, and the blinds in there previously were both temporary and a pain in the neck because of the window handle and lock. This is what I finally decided on. Both are from Country Curtains (sand colored thermal/blackout lined grass-woven roman shade (with a roller mechanism and hidden handle, not strings) and the new Casablanca valance in blue.

Thank you for all of the comments/assistance along the way. I think it does exactly what I wanted it to do. Now I just need to finish painting the trim in a higher gloss and the new doorway.

I've reposted the befores and afters so that you can see the entire difference.

Before (picture from original listing, and it didn't get much better before the remodel):

I'm not normally into valances (I go for more contemporary, streamlined decor), but I really, really like how yours looks, and how well it complements your bathroom. Just lovely!

Kevin, it really took me by surprise when I scrolled down! The treatment is beautiful and I think stands up well with the other strong elements in your room, including your cat ;) In particular I think it is a good fit with your vanity in style and substance.

Now the real test is ... do you find yourself laying in the tub gazing up at it lost in thoughtful admiration?
