Window Treatments

We have a small window in our bedroom but we are not sure what size curtain to get for it. Any Suggestions?

Amber - I would take this window and dress it in two phases. First, a neutral roman shade hung above the window high enough so when open it doesn't cover anything but the frame and all the light and air can come in. Neutral is different for different color palettes - white, cream, linen toned - what neutral is best with your things and in the most textural fabric weave you can find for your budget. Then, long term you want to layer full length drapery panels hanging on a long rod again, nearly outside the frame. The drapery may be a solid or a graphic print, velvet or linen, but that will add the pizzaz that a master bedroom needs and also allow the room to feel cozier on winter nights when you close them all.

I have white translucent roller blinds in my bedroom and nice thick pleated curtains on top. When buying a rail and curtains, remember to add at least 5" width on both sides, so when the curtain's are open, it will not be in front of the glass.
