need help with window covering

We have recently moved into our newly renovated home (just made it for Christmas and New Year). I am still having trouble deciding how to cover a window that is adjacent to the fireplace. The balcony doors are draped in monochrome gauze. Any ideas about the window? I wish it were a taller window so that I could drape it the same way. Your suggestions are always welcome and DESPERATELY needed.

Anastasia! What a gorgeous house! You must be so happy to have moved in, Christmas tree and all!

Since you like the gauzy fabric on your balcony door, why not repeat it on your other windows? Mount the fabric high (matching the height of the existing drapes) and it should be very wide and full, so you can pull it across the whole window or draw it back all the way to the left of the window. Make sure the curtain support is long enough that you can pull the curtain off the windows.

Thanks Cynthia. Do you think the height of the window from the floor matters ? That is, since the window is quite high, would long drapes be correct decorating -wise? Would I need to go for romans?

Not at all. Your window will look lovely and elegant and will relate beautifully to the window/door to the balcony.

If you prefer romans, you could do that, but it's not necessary.
