Desperate for window help!!!
February 20, 2013 in Design Dilemma
We just purchased this vacation home. It has many features that I love, (such as a claw and ball foot bathtub, happy, happy) but it has these ugly half circle stained glass windows above the otherwise very nice windows. It would be too costly to remove and replace these so I'm looking for ideas to disguise or cover them. Part of the kitchen is also shown which will be repainted. The feel I'm wanting to go for is warm with a burgundy leather couch and there is a beautiful antique, stained breakfront that was left behind (can you believe it???) There is a high vaulted ceiling that is tongue and groove pine or fir. Please help! These windows are orange, trimmed with purple stained glass. Not "me" at all.

I'm not an interior designer, but covering the yellow glass with a "fan" of drapery fabric will soften the look and cover up the glass. Depending on the fabric, it can be a total block out or a gauzy filtered effect. The checkerboard and the random "E" may have to go...painting the entire wall the same into the kitchen will unify the look.

a quick easy fix would be to put curtains as high up as you can, over the entire window..going all the way to the floor. Use sheers so you let in the light but diffuse the orange. I love the ceiling!
