Need help with window covering ideas

We just painted our family room and I want to showcase the pretty windows. The problem for me is that the window on the right stops at the wall, leaving no room for a curtain panel to hang. How can I hang curtains? Roman blinds?

I would not add anything. Pretty the way it is.

I would probably install a Silhouette, Pirouette or Roman Shade in that set of windows.

If you hung side panel draperies it would take out part of the light and view but soften the look.

If you want curtains just to warm up the windows, I would do short Roman Blinds (not usable just a pretty fabric) I would probably do a large flower patterned style , to mimic the garden look and patio . Or I would do a bamboo blind only, those window are spectacular on their own , so take your time.

If light or privacy is not an issue I would recommend going with a Mock Roman Shade. Its a great way to incorporate some texture and color to the space to really finish the look.

It depends on why you are looking for window treatments and what you want to accomplish by adding them. Is it light control, privacy, aesthetics? Which of these are important and in what order? There are ways to do draperies on your window, but you might accomplish your goals without it. It seems to me that you have enough recess in the window to mount inside any type of window shade. Roman shades look nice and can bring some fabric into the room while Woven "wood" shades can bring a little earthy casual feel. Honeycomb shades will usually stack really tightly if you want a treatment that virtually disappears when not in use. If you can answer the questions about what you are looking for, then you can be directed more precisely.

Answer the questions asked by North Shore Decor. Once you have those answers you can also add Pleated shades to your mix. It has the smallest stack of all shades and can be mounted over the glass only [on the inner of each window well.]
