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.

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.

Variety Spices Up Bedroom Draperies When just one curtain pattern presents a tough choice, think twice. Two favorite fabrics decorate the windows of the master bedroom in this Long Island home. The all-cotton curtains, heavy enough to block the sun, are hung as four panels in two alternating patterns of fabric. The unexpected variance of pattern adds a kicky, light-hearted mood appropriate for a home at the water’s edge. Mixing patterns is also a good solution for dressing a long wall of windows without risking redundancy. Interior design: Eliza Gatfield

Bedroom French Doors Need Draperies, Too French doors are found in more and more bedrooms, where privacy is non-negotiable. So how to cover these airy architectural assets when it’s lights out? This master bedroom’s solution is to extend the curtain rod the entire length of the room, well beyond the doors themselves. When the natural light and views are desired, the curtains are pulled past the doors, covering only the walls. Interior design: Elizabeth Corker

Dressing your bedroom windows is decorating at its most intimate. Window treatments are foundational to any room’s decorating. And in the private retreat of the bedroom, window dressings reveal our attitude on everything from privacy to pampering. Puddling clouds of sheers and streamlined Roman shades, for example, point to two very different personalities. A Curvy Bedroom Window Cornice  In this serene master bedroom walled with pale, hand-painted tone-on-tone stripes, the rigid rectangle of the window is softened with a scalloped cornice. This window treatment is frankly feminine, and it literally shapes the way the owner views the world outside. White-painted wooden blinds ensure privacy. Interior Design: Eva Quateman

Look closer: Layering understated curtain panels over natural blinds or shades, as in this bedroom, is a nearly foolproof way to add depth and texture. The draperies add just enough visual weight without being obtrusive, and the shades keep them from feeling too airy.

Befitting a Bedroom Window A refined stripe in burnished canyon colors aptly dresses the pair of canyon-view windows in this California master bedroom. Fabricated as shades for privacy, the Cowtan & Tout stripe replaces the usual severity of Roman shades to take a softer, rounded shape at the bottom more befitting a bedroom. Pulled up, the window treatment’s sides suggest rosettes, evoking dressmaker detailing. Interior design: Catherine Bailly Dunne

Draping the Bedroom Window Seat Window seats are charming additions to any room, instantly amping up character. Often they’re located in public rooms where privacy isn’t important and window treatments aren’t an issue. But in the bedroom, where privacy is essential, the window seat can literally stand in the way. The solution in this master bedroom is to bring the window treatment out from the wall to drape the entire window seat. When the drapery is open, the window and views are unimpaired with cluttering curtains. When it’s closed, privacy is all wrapped up.  Interior design: Catherine Bailly Dune

Valancing Act at the Bedroom Window Seat A second viable option to dressing a bedroom window that’s outfitted with a window seat is to go minimal. This only works, however, when privacy isn’t a consideration. In this bedroom at the American Red Cross Showhouse in Palm Beach, the conversation area doesn’t demand privacy, so a girly ruffled and swagged valance is the only dressing needed. It gives the space a fine finish without compromising the views. Plus, the valance won’t be in the way when a catnap is called for. Interior design:  Cristina Keogh
