Two sets of curtains requires 2 separate rods as in this room. It's hard to see in the photo because the large wooden rod is obscuring the smaller rod behind it.

The wall finish is actually a venetian plaster. It has a top-coat of paste wax infused with gold mica dust.

I see the window is much lower then the treatment - How did you decide where to hang the rod?

There are other windows in the room that are taller and I used those as my benchmark so that all the draperies are hung at the same height.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Classic Pieces: The Secretary Desk
In traditional secretary desk design, the bookcase top was half the depth of the chest of drawers on the bottom. This secretary blends traditional western style with intricate chinoiserie hand-painted designs borrowed from the Far East.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 11 Ways to Create a Multipurpose Office Space
5. If you can't hide the office, at least hide the work. Not every room has a spare closet in which to hide the office. But if you can fit everything you need into a secretary desk, then you can close up the desk itself and still hide the office. This can work whether you have a beautiful traditional room like this, or ...
Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Private Castle in Austin
This beautiful secretaire designed by Erika Brunson is one of the few new pieces in the house. While this piece might reflect a different era and style than the rest of the pieces in this guest room, the materials and styles still blend smoothly. "I'm not a purist by any means," says Cravotta. "So sticking to one style or period was never my objective, although the house has a definite English feel."
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to A Love Letter to Writing Desks
Pens, stationery and stamps can all be tucked away in the plentiful drawers of a secretary like this.With writing tools neatly stored away, the main doors can remain open for a full view of the piece's detailed craftsmanship.
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 22 Divine Draperies That Indulge and Delight
Aren't these drapes perfect for being next to this exquisite secretary desk? The ripples in the drapery and the gold fabric echo the desk's shapes and colors.
Charmean Neithart Interiors, LLC. added this to Chinoiserie Sends Rooms on Flights of Fancy
I would never want to come out of this guest bedroom, with its beautifully showcased chinoiserie secretary. These types of pieces commonly feature secret drawers and compartments for jewelry, money and documents.
Pinch pleats. Although traditional, these perfect pleats never go out of style. For this heading, fabric is gathered delicately into three little folds and then pinched together to create one pleat. Tip: The closer you place the pleats, the fuller the drapery looks.More on pinch pleats

If you can’t hide the office, at least hide the work Not every room has a spare cupboard in which to hide the office. But if you can fit everything you need into a secretary desk, then you can close it all up at the end of the day. This can work whether you have a beautiful traditional room like this, or in a contemporary room. Secretary desks come in all styles.

Chinoiserie is another kind of painted furniture. It was all the rage in the 17th and 18th centuries when Europeans were trying to copy Chinese and Japanese lacquered furniture, and resulted in some amazing pieces. This antique style reproduction secretary is a great example of how extravagant chinoiserie could be. What a beautiful way to contain your “home office.”
