Help me with this project (pic heavy heavy heavy)

We bought our first home.... we love the huge windows in each room.  The living room has a great window, and has a view of the entire front yard. The house is located on a private lane and has zero traffic so privacy is not an issue.


Our living room will be painted when I figure out the curtain situtation..... Our couch, chair and ottoman are all chocolate brown. There is an oak entrance way, and we have oak end tables. EVERYTHING is else is changeable.


Help me decorate starting with these windows. The curtains that are on here need to go!!  I do NOT like them.


 


We bought our first photo 3157319-1We bought our first photo 3157319-2


So i thought about finding another valance.... but haven't found anything that isn't "old lady"


then i thought of a panel with a shear under...but think the rod hanging out may look funny


also kinda liked this and my husband said "Really??"


Studio Window Coordinates, Rumor Sheers I plan on new couch pillows... and accessories. I want to stick to a brown tone... HELP!!

I freaking LOVE that window!!  I would go with panels with sheers behind for sure!  I'm gonna suggest you use some color in either your panels, pillows or both, just to change it up a bit.  But that is me, I think every room needs a little splash of color!! :)

I agree, do you like the ones i posted?!  I want to dress the window, without covering them. I like color, I have teal going on now... but can be changed. My husband likes neutral colors

I love big windows!  I like the sheers & panels you picked out, but I'm wondering what other colors they come in?  I agree with Allie that your accessories for the room - pillows, wall art, window treatments etc - should bring some color into the room.


Is there a color scheme currently going on in your dining room that is right off your living room, or will you transition into that room based on what you decide with the living room?

I like the idea of color... our carpet is white, and couch brown.  Other than that all can be changed. The walls are the color the previous owner had painted. In the daylight it is sunny yellow and night like an olive green STRANGE. They did a horrible paint job, so it is getting painted.


The kitchen/dining area is off of the living room. it is brown, purple and green.


 


I like the last pillow

Those curtains are SUPER fun, even though they are neutral.  Definitely!!
