Advice from Sunshine Designer
“What do I do with these two-story windows?” I confess, this question is music to my ears!
Two-story windows have such impact in a room as do the window treatment solutions chosen to spotlight these majestic architectural elements. My favorite solution is to drape 250-inch tall drapery panels that cascade down the wall into a soft “puddle” of fabric on the floor. What a glorious first impression this look creates! The beauty of this window treatment solution is that you don’t lose the incredible views that tend to be the focal point of these beatiful, waterfall windows.
Drapery panels elongated from fabulous wood polls and rings that are accented with spectacular finials add to the majestic style of the two-story windows. Also swag shells embellished with gorgeous bouillon trims add to the finishing touches of these window treatments. Additionally, you can opt for panels to be all the same height or you can stagger the drapery panels to follow the waterfall-style of the windows. The possibilities are endless!
