Curtains have an important role in the design of a house because a home with no cover for the windows, even partial, looks empty and unfinished, almost like you are there just temporary, not living on a permanent basis. And modern homes nowadays have just a short curtain in the upper part of the window or just covering a very transparent curtain. This is the valance. The material of choice for the curtain valance is a bit thicker than a regular curtain and has different patterns on. I like these starfish patterns very much, especially if you use the valance in a room with a marine design.
I found two different models of starfish curtain valances and they are both very beautiful. All you have to do is decide which one fits the design of your room and then order it directly on the internet or maybe get inspired by the design and find something similar in your local store. Any way, the first model is sort of brownish/beige background with white starfish and you can purchase it on Country Porch for $29.95/ea and the second one has a heavy weight fabric that makes it look almost like a cornice. It is pinkish with red starfish and has two layers of fabric on top of each other with rounded edges that look fabulous. You can buy the latter for $89.99.
