- It is a 3 bend bay.
- It is a slider window on the right side.
- It is our first tri-color decorated cornice.
Francis and Marsha's kitchen/dining area is definitely a different design. It is the combination of a traditional two bend bay window that starts from the left of the room, but at the end it extends with an additional bend and then goes across a standard slider window. They decided upon a 12" high cornice and used fabric they had and some new they purchased.
The room has a theme of plants and a general "growing area." So the flower pattern fabric seems appropriate with different solid colors on the top and bottom. The different colors bring out different tones from the flower center. Francis did a great job on covering this long length. I was not there when they actually put it on the brackets but I am sure it prompted a neighborhood get together. This size cornice is definitely not heavy, but the three bends pretty much demands at least three sets of hands if not four.
This window combination could have been two separate window cornices but it was a relatively small distance from the end of the bay window to the slider so I recommended they go with one. The result was right for the space but it did making taking one picture of the whole thing just about impossible!
