When I saw this photo I knew I just had to share it. Simple and lovely. The proportions, gentle gathered draping and subtle use of trims makes this style one of my favorites.
Typical swags and cascades have always been a mainstay of interior design but to combine swag folds with a cornice boxed return gives a more tailored finish and it looks unique and modern even though it is not a new style.
I found the picture among other beautiful traditional styles on the Fiona Campbell Design website in which it is described as "curtains with swagged pelment". www.fionacampbelldesign.co.uk/index.asp
