What to do with wide open wall and window treatments

Sheri O'Kain ReedMay 13, 2013
New TV and Entertainment center, we are ready for a change, took down most of old decor and can paint over scroll design on wall. We want more casual, Pottery barn style..HELP! Fireplace wall is fine, but over the TV needs help and new window treatments are also needed!! Photo also attached of rug in this room. Thanks for your feedback!

I think two-story drapes in a simple fabric would look fab! Eliminate the chair and a half, pull the sofa back to the edge of the flooring, mount TV above the FP (tilt if needed for viewing,) add two chairs and a table plus art where the TV is now and a console or credenza at the stairwell wall. Paint your favorite color from the rug. Add pillows, accessories in other colors from the rug. Search the box above for two story drape under Photos to see some inspiration.

Sofa is a sectional so it must remain in its place. TV cannot be mounted it also must remain in place. Any other thoughts?

Also, I tend to think 2 story drapes make it more formal, and we are trying to make it more casual...am I wrong?

There are so many options with this room, but you seem to be anchored to the current arrangement. Are you sure you're ready for a re-design?

The TV and sofa are both new, so really just looking for feedback on curtains and the large open wall. Our previous entertainment center took up way more space so this has opened it up quite a bit.

I love your room and design, I agree the chair and a half could go. The drapes I like too. Some large art work to fill wall would look great and another smaller chair that would fit space better.
You have great taste.

I'd look into some battery operated solars, or sail shades in a cornices box for the top windows. There are tons of patterns to chooses from to fit the rest of your design.
