Custom Window Treatments bring warmth to Farmhouse update

A client contacted me with the desire to add window treatments to her updated farmhouse style home. She had recently completed painting, flooring, trim, and a bathroom complete redo including tile, sink, vanity top and shower.
Her guest room with an en suite bath needed 3 window treatments to bring warmth to the space.
A classic linen was selected as the main fabric for the window treatments.

A roman shade for the small window next to the bed would help to balance the room and not overwhelm things. The larger main window would have full length drapery panels and the small window at a different height and size were in close proximity to one another.
This brought a challenge how to make the windows appear level with one another and not overwhelm the room with too much fabric.
Since the larger window needed drapery hardware to bring full functionality to the drapery panels we selected a traversing rod that had ball bearing gliders and leaded glass final ends.

This tied into the leaded glass overhead light fixture that was in the room already.
The bed linens were a simple duvet cover with white cotton shams to match.
In the en suite bath there was a small window that had blinds and the client wanted to bring the same fabric from the main bedroom into the space. We added a hard cornice board valance to the window with a curved bottom for just the right amount of "wow" and not to overwhelm the space.

The full length drapery in the main room also included blackout lining to block out light and provide some noise control from the main street outside.

With the drapery and shade closed there is complete light blockage shown in the image above.
The drapery and shade open allows light to pour into the room with very little blockage of views.
