Large View Window Drapery Ideas

Simple side panel drapes are great for large view windows. Large rooms and large windows usually need some dressing up without detracting from a beautiful view.  Sheer linens and cottons are suitable fabrics for this kind of treatment.  I have also used a variety of linen look-alikes in polyester that avoid the fading and wrinkling associated with linen.  Many of these come in 118" widths that are perfect for oversize seameless side panels.

For a truly custom drapery, I usually add dressmaker details such as pleats, decorative ties, pleats or smocking at the top, buttons, bands and side band details.  This dresses up what could be a very dull treatment.

Interesting rods will also add such interest to the treatment. Custom iron rods, wood poles and rings, swing arm rods and decorative wood, fabric or iron cornices also add interest to a custom window treatment.

The rod in the picture above is a custom iron arrow with an iron arrow tieback to hold the panels back.  The rods fit into the western indian decor.  Note the flip top detail. This little detail takes what could be a blah panel into something special.

  1. I am looking for the curtains you used on the first picture with the white chair sitting in front of it. Where did you purchase those?
