Artfully Filter Light A gauzy curtain diffuses daylight and makes a luminous backdrop for whatever you put in front of it—even a simple chair. The idea is to gracefully reveal (rather than conceal) the window, so a single panel is all you need. Pick a panel with generous length to create lush, romantic pooling on the floor.
Purchase sheer curtain panels in glitzy brown-gold, and then hang them from a curtain rod installed several inches above the top of the window so the panels barely brush the floor.
Hang curtains wider than the window and close to the ceiling to create the optical illusion of bigger windows. Save money by using store-bought panels or making your own. One panel on either side of the window creates a frame. For privacy/light control you can add a shade, blinds, or sheers in the middle.
