Beautiful!

How about a faux silk satin or taffeta in a golden cream?

A taffeta would be stiffer if you wanted more body, while the satin would give you a softer feel.

A tone on tone stripe would be lovely.

Below are two fabrics in a pinched taffeta and one in a metallic.

Absolutely lucious!

Do you mean you wish a window treatment to use with the drapes but in place of the white panel?

Do the current draperies puddle on the floor? Can you use a sheer material in place of the white?

The color which has harmony and not be dark,although there is an old and white heater under this white silk. I can cover and design this heater with a nice wooden box.

Do you plan to keep the present drapes and stack to each side?

Or will you replace them?

The current fabric is absolutely stunning, but I realize you might want a change.

I would be removing the white curtain underneath. Italian string the panels and do a sheer shade underneath...Austrian or relaxed roman shade.

Hi Aja, you mean this is the worst style that I can use underneath curtain?

1, Remove the white silk.

2. "Tie back" the panels.

3. Hang a shade, blind, etc. of your choice.

I believe that Julie Thome Draperies, Inc. means to cut your beautiful green drapes into strips, but perhaps I misunderstand

You could change the greens design into a Balloon Shade.and raise it high.
That would be very nice.

Aja Mazin, you do not know what Italian Stringing is.???? I would never suggest to cut up fabric like that. Italian stringing is where they are strung from behind the drape so that the drape pulls back to the side. It is NOT string curtains.
Do you know anything about drapery construction? There is a picture of Italian strung curtains on my Houzz site. theya re beige and pleated and pulled back by strings BEHIND the drape so you do not see them.

Atieh, you have some gorgeous fabrics! I'd love to see the embroidered panels pulled back with Italian stringing as suggested by Julie above--this is a very upscale treatment and would look gorgeous on these panels. if you need privacy, you could hang a pretty sheer curtain underneath.

Hi J mittman,Yes ,privacy is so important to me .Im completely confused. Would you please explane me: widow treatment, Italian string, modern wooden blind. I like Julie's style but I want to know , what's the best color for the Italian string ( or window treatment ). I want to make these green panels seem modern design.

Window treatment: generic term for any window covering. Italian stringing: The stringing is not seen on the front--see Julie's picture--the stringing is done on the back side of the curtain panels. It is tacked in specific places and drawn up with a string such as to create the look in Julie's photo. This type of treatment is generally stationary--meaning it is drawn back to stay that way. That is why I suggested putting a sheer behind them for privacy--and getting rid of the white/cream panel--that is what really needs replaced to update your window.
Wood blind: A hard treatment--with slats that can be louvered, or the whole blind drawn up. You can google these terms to see additional pictures.

Then place Roman shades, wood blinds, or string curtains behind your existing, refashioned curtains.

I have a question....why is it the fashion to have drapery so long it lays all over the floor? I see it everywhere. To me it just collects dirt. I would really love an answer.

To be honest, it is really out of fashion for the last several years, to have it on the floor at all. It was in the 80s and 90s that is was in fashion.

Fashions come and go. The length issue on drapes is a touchy one, what one likes, someone else hates...it's a lot like the hemlines on dresses, no too people like the same.

Hem the drapes at the floor. The puddle look is over with. I would use nothing under them, but push them open. If you need privacy, a shade, blind, or even sheer panels possibly in the gold color would all work.

Atieh seirafian,

I agree the color should be much lighter than your closet.

Would you consider a stained pastel or a pickled wood?

We moved into a new home last year and until we begin to decorate, we had 2" wooden blinds installed on every window in this home.

This is acceptable until we choose fabric and style because the home is in Florida and the sun is very hot and we want much privacy.

HI---here are some pics for you. #1 is an example of drapery with Italian stringing and an embroidered sheer. The other pic is pinch pleated taffeta panels hung straight on drapery rings and paired with a folden roman shade---this design would give your windows a little more contempory look than the stringing method... The last photo is a link you may find quite helpful Good Luck!
