When buying curtains, it's important to measure your windows properly and consider what fabric best meets your needs.To determine what size curtain to buy, measure the length and the width of your window. For a traditional style, measure the length of the window including the frame and add nine inches to get the length of your curtains, then measure the width and multiply by 1.5 to get the curtains' width. For a contemporary style, which hangs just above the floor, measure your curtains from one inch above the floor to six inches above the top of your window frame. Shop for curtains that are the same length as your measurement and 1.5 times the width of your window. For a fancier style that almost touches the ceiling and hangs on the floor, measure from the ceiling to the floor and add at least eight inches to get the curtains' length, then multiply your window's width by three to get the curtains' width.Cotton is a popular fabric for curtains because it's easy to clean and maintain.

As you might have noticed in most of my house photos, I am not a very big fan of curtains on windows.  I am more of a plantation shutter kind of girl.  Or, if possible, I much prefer to leave the window bare naked and let the sun shine in!  A quick flip through any dwelling magazine these days tells me that I am not alone in this trend.  Bare windows are rampant!

Drape With Silk For a luxurious and romantic ambiance in the boudoir, designer Sharon McCormick pampers the bedroom in silk drapery panels, choosing a restful, sea glass color. Add pleats, tassels, crystals, beads or buttons for a custom touch. Included underneath is a remote-controlled window shade for privacy. Image Courtesy of Sharon McCormick. Photo by Urso Photography. Mix It Up Designer Kati Curtis favors a combination of simple sheer and opaque draperies in her Manhattan bedroom designs. The sheer fabric stays open during the day to allow light in. At night, the opaque panels help buffer sound and keep light out for a good night’s sleep. For a sleek touch, hardware is hidden in the window pocket. Image Courtesy of Kati Curtis. Pleat From Floor To Ceiling Choose a traverse or gathered rod and cover the entire wall by hanging pleated window treatments from floor to ceiling. Chicago-based designer Mary Susan Bicicchi creates a coccon-like feel with black-and-white patterned drapes in her own bedroom. Use the treatment to make a small room feel larger or open up a room with tall, skinny windows like hers. Image Courtesy of Mary Susan Bicicchi. From: Mary Susan Bicicchi Hang in Layers To soften the look and add dimension to a bedroom window, California-based designer Lada Webster loves to use layers. She suggests adding a pattern to one of the layers to create a whimsical look or touch of character. Then it becomes a focal point in your private space. Image Courtesy of Lada Webster. Metallic Finishes If it’s drama you like, you can get it with hardware. New Englander Sharon McCormick loves bedroom drapes that hang from large wooden rods in metallic finishes. Add more personality to the frame by selecting elaborate, crystal or fabric-wrapped finials. Image Courtesy of Sharon McCormick. Photo by Urso Photography. Oversized Hardware DrapeStyle designer Rick Thompson created this urban chic panel with oversized grommets and topped off with chocolate brown silk banding. The lighter metallic mesh fabric provides privacy, yet still allows light into the room. Oversized grommets work well in a smaller space with fewer windows and in contemporary settings, if you want the hardware revealed. Image Courtesy of DrapeStyle. Trim With Fabric Add a fun element to the bedroom decor with a simple, rectangular valance accentuated with beaded fringe, says Washington state designer Natalia Smith. It’s a clean, unobstructed look that opens the room to light and color and adds the finishing touch — as long as the fabric in the valance matches what’s on the pillows and bedding. Smith prefers a cornice with simple padding and a finished edge at the bottom for transitional, as opposed to traditional, style. Image Courtesy of Natalia Smith.

OH MY GOD, Beth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love how creatively you have done the curtains in this post. Its like custom made and very eye catching. My fave one is the grain sacs one. This is something which is really creative and out of the box! While I was reading your post I was like how would grain sacs really look, but when I scrolled down and saw, They Look stunningly amazing! Question question: What other materials can we make use of, if not the grain sacs? Love and kisses Jessica x
