What should I do for drapery for these windows?

WOW! Look at that view!!! What a great space to enjoy! Would it work to just put that film on the windows that does provide privacy AND light control, too?

Photo of room is kind of dark. Do you want drapery for looks or insulation or privacy? I suggest you check into cellular shades that only filter light. Compact down to about an inch or two when you want your view, but to block heat and cold or for privacy they are great.

It looks like you have some sort of blinds.....why do you think you need drapery? Personally I wouldn't do drapery on these windows.

Yes there are blinds there. Was thinking of drapery just for looks. I was thinking of somehow hanging two panels from the ceiling with some kind of hook

These windows and the view are just to amazing to cover with clunky drapes and metal blinds. Try those blinds that are cloth and they can be pulled from the bottom up or from the top down. In a somewhat sheet tone and that way they are not going to destroy your view but can get privacy when you need it.

I think drapes would detract from the windows and the view and aren't necessary, or even compatible with this style window.

I love moving furniture. Saves $$ and fills the gap of remodeling spurts;) I also like to take things from one room to another. I actually love anything with makeovers;)

Some people have babies when they get bored, too. LOL THEN they are extra busy with no time to worry about decorating!!!

Blind Spot blinds & shutters
Hunter Douglas makes a product called Silhouette that can help with hard windows like this. It is a great product that combines a sheer and (a for lack of better description..rolling blind.) You can enjoy the view and still have UV protection. This will let you accent your architecture rather than cover it.

The view is incredible! Adding drapery panels in between each of the windows will add softness and visual interest. An idea from one of our top designers is to mount lush drapery panels on medallions at an angle. Five panels all together will unify the space and frame the windows.

I do like to have something on windows so that they can be closed at night (and I live in the country). I don't like the "fish in a fishbowl" feel.

Yes decorview! That is what I was thinking. Two dummy panels, maybe three in between the windows. Next question is, something sheer or a heavier patterned fabric. I do want some color

Because the space between windows is very narrow, I would suggest a lighter fabric. You could still go with a lightweight patterned fabric, or you could get a sheer with some color. You want something that will stack pretty tightly, in order to preserve your view. A heavier fabric will partially block the windows when open.

top down bottom up cellular shades with remote control :) you could keep it closed on the bottom and still leave all the light up top come in, or vice versa and make the choice on each window on any given day how you want the light to come in

I agree with the layout from Blind Spot. The Hunter Douglas products are very popular in Napa Valley. Our vistas are so expansive that the Silhouette's seem to be perfect.
I also like the binds that you can open the top but gives privacy at the lower end. Those are very nice for that sort of setting. Some models actually have remotes that operate with a push of the button!!
