Lightbulb Advice window treatments Interior decorators

Hi Everyone-
I know there are a few interior decorator ( or just some good ideas) forum members in here, and was wondering on some advice for window treatments. We are redecorating and just finished painting then new sofas and carpet....

2 windows with half circles, and double french doors.

My dilemma is the french doors.

I am not wanting something real sheer and it has to be washable , do not want to cover the half circles either (3kids, plus a Hav)

Any ideas ?

So you want to be able to cover the french doors?...and the windows but not the top circular part? Are you thinking more like drapes or more like built in shutters?

Thanks for the compliments.

I don't think built in shutters.

Right now they have cellular shades on them (which need to eventually be replaced)

I had draped scarves around the outside before...

We do use the french door to go in/out but not alot since we have access to the deck via a sunroom, but the door would get used once in awhile.

I did see where you can buy door curtains which attach to the doors, but then they don't have regular curtains to match...
Was thinking maybe a rob with rings, but do they make really long rods?

the opposite wall has a TV, so we do need to keep a shade on them.

I will try to see if I have a before pic...

basically they were swag scarves, I had 2 on each window with scarf holders. The french door had 3 scarf holders, one in the middle at the top.
all the scarfs just framed the windows, and the half circle ones droped in a swag at the bottom of the half circle across the window, the french door was just framed.

I know this doesn't help, but your view is wonderful and from the picture it looks like privacy wouldn't be an issue. I would leave the windows unfettered and enjoy the view and the sunshine. If anything, maybe a simple swag at each window and the french doors to give a softer look.

If it was me, I would not put much coverings on the windows. They are beautiful as is.
For the French doors, I would put just a blind on them that rolls up, or venetians, if you are worried about TV,and then you can at least roll them up easily when you want sun in the room.

I think they look very nice as is. For the side windows, I would do something very sheer, could you not put a blackout blind underneath your drapery that would not show and then if needed to watch tv, you could use the blind?

They are gorgeous windows and gorgeous view
