What to do about a front entry door with a large window?

My daughter is buying a house in a very nice, upscale neighborhood. It is new construction and one of the last houses left so the models are already sold.

The front entry door has a large glass “window”, about half the size of the door. It has panes of clear glass. So she wants something to give her privacy, but considering it is the entrance to the house it needs to be really nice, and a little formal. The entry is into a foyer, but opens to a beautiful formal dining room.

Any suggestions?

Hi Mary

Sound like a lovely place your daughter has there. I would go with a custom made roman shade. It would look really stunning in the right kind of fabric. Also to create some real interest from inside and outside I would recommend you put some shape in to the bottom edge. Then finish off with a tassel trim along the bottom shaped edge.

Best regards
