Our Custom Macrame Ombre Valances

I’ve had this idea of sunset ombre valances in my mind for over a year, and I knew it would bring another fabulous layer to our eclectic living room. Our living room is a varied mixture of antiques, retro furniture, global touches and LOTS of color. And while my old DIY tassel curtains served us well, they weren’t quite the style I wanted (and the cats kept attacking the tassels when the cat shelves were on that wall…so they were looking a little frayed).

These were my DIY tassel curtains when I first installed them. Alot has changed in the living room since! You can slide the arrows to see the transformation.

I knew my friend Kelti at Coda.Co would make my sunset ombre valance dream come true, and she really delivered!

I asked her to make 3 separate valences for each window, so the original woodwork of our craftsman house would still shine. I also knew I wanted a zig-zag edge and only part of the macrame to be ombre. I figured the whole curtains being dyed would be too much color, and the cream knotting would go well with our cream walls and balance it out. I let her get creative with the macrame knots, she’s the expert after all 🙂 They turned out soooo good, and I’m so happy that they came from a dear friend. They add another fun story to our living space!

This is the photograph Kelti took of them when she completed them in her studio

We have a number of other custom projects from Kelti and Tanner at Coda.Co, so needless to say, we highly recommend them! Below are some of the other pieces they have made us.

I’m sure we will be collaborating with Coda.Co and other local artists in the future, so stay tuned for more amazing projects!
