Renovated my kitchen almost two years ago and I would love to have some window treatments but I am having a terribly difficult time. Attached is pic
of my bay window/nook area. I'm looking for suggestions for over the sink area also. The color on the walls is BM Mystic Gold. Considering Country Curtains Devon Floral valance but think an 18" valance on a 55" length window may be too long even though it has a scalloped edge. Country Curtains Macrame tier is also pretty but would not offer much color. Appreciate any thoughts you may have! Thank You!! Cross posting to home decorating forum.

In my experience Country Curtains florals tends to look best in spaces that can take big volume window treatments.
Look on line or find a place that sells martha stewart. I think you might find something narrower or smaller scale. She has some very pretty linens.
Other option: I had a friend sew a narrow valance for my smaller kitchen windows. Bought just the fabric I wanted at JoAnne's , got the size that looked right, and I bet it was no more expensive than country curtains.

I would have a custom window treatment done. I would do a relaxed roman shade in a beautiful floral and have it mounted above the window to give the illusion that your window is taller than it is.
