Living Room Drapes

I am looking for drapery ideas for these windows. I think I want silk side panels. Open to suggestions.

Hi, I was struck by your photo because the window arrangement really reminded me of my house! I'm attaching some photos of my curtains which are faux silk with a large ring heading which helps them fall neatly.

Real silk must be lined heavily (inside and outside linings) to prevent sun rot. Country Curtains ha some pretty faux silk ones, and so do lots of other sources like JC Penny.

Would you like thin or thick curtains?

You might want to consider drapery panels for the big window, and a matching roman shade for the side window...it might be overwhelmed by the drapes.

Is that a TV on top of a TV? :)

Yes, silk curtain panels do require extra attention to lining as mentioned above. I would also interline silk panels--another layer of lining inside the back lining that gives silk curtains a luxurious feel. I would even interline faux silk since they are just as thin. Gives them SO much more body.
On your small window you can still do curtains--just have your rod mounted several inches outside the window width, and have the inside edge of the panel just cover the window trim. It will make that small window look much larger. How about a few coordinating throw pillows?

Thanks for all the great ideas. Yes, that is a TV on top of a TV. We recently moved in and my husband can't make up his mind what he wants to do there. Love the pictures.

With this ceiling the drapery panels should always be hung at the ceiling and just touch the floor, and always off the window with just the leading edge over the side framing. Since you have all solids I would certainly suggest a patterned drape. Maybe a bold trellis pattern in just 2 colors. Add matching pillows on sofa.
