Window treatments that provide privacy and let in light
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.

Bathe in Luxury - Turn any bath into a cottage-style spa with a claw-foot tub, pedestal sink, and pretty light fixtures. A pedestal-base soaking tub might have been strictly utilitarian at one time. Today it's the sweetest of cottage luxuries. Romance the look with hexagonal tile and beaded-board paneling, all in white.
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.

Embellish plain curtain panels with your own stencil: this tutorial (next slide) will show you how to stencil & paint a design on the panels.

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.
