One of my 12 Projects for 2012 is to finish redecorating the main guest room. One of the things I really need to do is place some type of window treatments on the bank of french doors and flanking windows. The doors and windows are heavily trimmed out and I love the way they came out thanks to one of my heroes, Brian the great carpenter. Anyway, I have toyed with the thought of just placing a decorative rod all the way across the top the of header with just enough panels to cover the windows. I cannot use many panels as the space at each end of the bank of windows and doors are not even. One side is wider than the other..
I really do not want to cover the trim…so what do I do? I thought about hanging woven blinds, but then it would cover most of the header trim. I thought about pleated shades, but really do not like the look of that. We live on a golf course and there are no homes that are in close range directly behind us. In all of the seasons except the winter and late fall, there is plenty of privacy from the trees. Well, with the exception of the nosey deer. In the winter, you can see faint lights from the houses beyond. So, I really want my guests to be comfortable with a real sense of privacy. So, that is my dilemma..What type of treatments do I place on those windows and doors?
So, today, I am joining Betsy Speert’s Tuesdays Design Questions post/link party..to ask, what the heck do I do with those windows? So, what say you? Cover them or leave them???
It is hard to get a picture when you are aiming directly at the windows/doors. I just received my new camera that has been on world wide backorder!..So hopefully it would help with that problem. Gotta take some lessons first! Oh, and ignore that fan!..It is going away soon! Sorry guests!
I thought that taking a picture via the mirror may cut down on the reflection.
The right side..does not have much space for panels to gather. However, if I use lightweight fabric, then I may be able to get them into that tight space.
The left side..has more width.
Crummy picture, but you get the idea (I hope)
Another dark view.
Another dark view of the left side.
More trim view.
So there it is. I have been making myself crazy to make a decision. Oh, and please ignore the Christmas decs. Have not gotten to that room to put things away!..Yes, I am still surrounded by the sparkles of Christmas. But I am slowly getting there.
Again, what say you? Cover them or leave them?
Please leave your much welcomed comment!
