Well, it’s been a long wait, three years to be exact and finally new window treatments on every window! Being on a budget during our renovation, we did one room at a time. Now, every window is finished! Although this is our sixth home (a long story), this is the first time I had the opportunity to chose my own window treatments! The new curtains in our great room made the most dramatic change in the house. However, trying to decide what to do here with a bay window was difficult.
Originally, I was going to hang curtains on each side of the window (across the top outside of the bay) to avoid concealing the two original mouldings between the windows.However, after seeing a photo of a bay window with four separate panels I changed my mind. The panels are more traditional and bring a richness to the space. A close up look of the brass hardware. Two rod joints connect the corners. Brass hardware was the best choice for the room. I found an excellent seamstress who paid attention to detail to ensure my curtains were exactly how I wanted them. Window treatments are a long term investment, so it’s important (if you do not sew yourself) to find an experienced seamstress.
We have very high ceilings, (12 feet) so the curtains are very long. I wanted them to pool on the floor for a formal look.

The pirate skeleton on loan from my 12 year old! He saved up his money and bought this fun mosaic in Florida! I am proud he decided to spend his money on art instead of video games! 😉 I am on the look out for two very large trays to place on the ottomans but have not found the right ones yet. I’m envisioning very large black lacquered trays or maybe blue?
