Need help with finding curtains for my picture window

I have a picture window with a large area where I put family photos. Currently, I have shutters on the bottom half of the windows and a draped valance that only hangs at the top of the window's woodwork, not even covering the top part of the windows. I am looking for ideas/photos to change the look.

THere are some things for you to think about. What kind of budget do you have...do you need to purchase from Target or can you afford custom? Are you thinking drapery panels that are decorative and stationary or are you thinking you just want to do something at the top? I also would like to suggest that if you want it to look more professional, you'll want to put what ever you buy about 1/2 the distance between the top of the window and the ceiling for the top of the window covering...so the top of the drape or the top of the valance should be in the 1/2 way point. You should measure what a panel height would be and what a valance height might need to be. We can then guide you to websites that can meet you needs. You design style..is it contemporary, traditional ore transitional?
