Help with window coverings
December 19, 2012 in Design Dilemma
We have tired of our plaid drapes in our breakfast room. We removed the drapes and love the clean look without them, but need something to block the direct sun during the summer. Like bamboo blinds, but can't figure out how to mount them without covering up too much of the transom windows, and those windows are too beautiful and expensive to cover much. Thinking of placing wooden rods above the trim in the small space below the crown moulding and hanging curtain panels in the fabric pattern shown (pic is sideways - color matches olive green wall color) in each corner on rings so they would be operational when the sun is strong, but normally keep them drawn to the corners of the bay. It would look sort of like the last pic, but without the sheers. Any other ideas on what to do?
