Next we searched and searched for some Hawaiian fabric to make a valance to match his PBK Island Surf Bedding (he has this quilt with this navy/red reversible comforter):
I don't plan on changing the wall color in the room which is currently that green color you see in the quilt. So in the end, we decided a plain navy valance was the best we could do. A quick search on the Hancock Fabrics website lead me to this awesome ribbon. A little bit of Witch Stitchery, a hot iron, and a towel over top of the ribbon (turns out those white flowers are plastic!) and we had a valance:
A couple of tiebacks tied the valance and the off-white curtains together:
It was tough to get a good photo in low light, and the canopy bed in the way doesn't help things much, but I think it looks pretty darn good:
Adding the hibiscus ribbon allowed us to tie it in with flowers/leaves in the surf bedding while still keeping it masculine. When we move him into this room I plan on taking off the door to the walk-in closet and replacing it with a curtain. Right now the door swings into the room and takes up precious wall space on the only wall that can really "hold" the bed. Since I have a bunch of hibiscus ribbon leftover, I'm thinking a navy blue curtain with red ribbon accents at the top and bottom or maybe along the long edge.
