A peculiar window treatment situation

by PAM
(OKLAHOMA)

I HAVE A NEW HOME WITH TWO 4FT. WIDE WINDOWS X 7FT. LONG AND IN THE MIDDLE IS A BRICK FIREPLACE. THE CEILINGS ARE 10FT.

I HAVE A VERY OPEN FLOOR PLAN AND A LOT OF LEOPARD AND RED. I HAVE A WINDOW IN THE KITCHEN THAT SETS BACK A LIITLE FROM THESE TWO WINDOWS I AM TALKING ABOUT AND YOU CAN SEE THE WINDOW TREATMENT IN THERE.

I FEEL LIKE THEY NEED TO COORDINATE. I HAVE TRIED OTHER TREATMENTS AND NOTHING SEEMS TO GIVE THE ROOM THE WOW FACTOR. DO YOU THINK I NEED TO FIND THE COORDINATING FABRIC AND ADD SOMETHING TO IT?

DO I MAKE JUST A TOPPER OR SHOULD IT BE FLOOR LENGTH IN WHICH MAKES THIS 108″
I DON’T WANT MY WINDOW COVERED UP, THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL AND HAS A GREAT VIEW. JUST NEEDS SOME COLOR.

PLEASE HELP!

Hi Pam

Right to your question, my first thought is to use scarf swags over your windows. The reason being is you don’t need privacy and just want to add a splash of color.

So scarf swags will frame your windows. You get a window topper and something down the sides as well. Best of both worlds. Also they are really easy to do.

On your two windows either side of your fire place. I would fit a decorative curtain rod over each window. Then hang a simple scarf across the rod and down each side. I would make the outside ends long. Maybe down to the floor.

Then make the inside edges (next to the fire place) only half as long. This is purely to add a bit of interest. Either make one for the kitchen window as well or use the same fabric so as they co-ordinate.

Best regards
