Window Dressing Help

August 1, 2013

Decorating savvy friends, I need your help.

In our living room, we have a bay window that is made up of three seperate windows. The big guy in the middle is causing me some grief.

Bay window with stained glass

Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful window and I feel pretty lucky to have some original stained glass going on in my house. But we need some sort of window covering up there for both privacy and glare reducing tv watching purposes. Same level of priority in my opinion.

The window coverings that were up there when we moved in were way too much. They made the room feel smaller and all of the original details that make me crazy about old houses were completely lost behind dated fabric. I don't want to go down that route again.

I'm thinking of putting roman shades on the two flanking smaller windows and always having them pulled to the same level as the stained glass in the middle window. Since I likely wouldn't ever move them up or down from there, I could save some money and put up some fakers. In behind I could use less fancy pull down shades for some real light blocking capabilities (it's really only a concern for the right window because the sun goes down RIGHT THERE but I like things to be symmetrical).

The sheer curtains that were left here before provided enough privacy for us, so I like the idea of hanging up some updated sheer curtains in between each window, that could be moved to cover the windows as needed. That way I still get to see the molding and stained glass, but can close things up a little bit at night.

We have quite a bit of wall space between each window, so I think it might work out?

Any advice??
