Just lovely.

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.

Easy, Beach-Inspired Decorating Ideas

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.

Easy Window Treatment Projects

The floor to ceiling curtains are nice. I want to have sheer curtains below opaque ones so that I can have privacy and light during the day and can close to curtains at night so that people still can't see inside.

Interesting panel hanging system. Let's light in and doesn't look like normal panel systems, which usually show the distinct edges of the panels.

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.
