Tricky Oval Window

Here is a great idea I found for dealing with those oval shaped windows.  You know the ones - they add tons of character and make you love the house.  Then you're not sure what to do with them once you realize you need more privacy and/or light control (like in a bathroom or master suite).  

Well, here's a great solution.   
For a more versatile take, I would use a sheer linen, as opposed to a damask, coupled with the nail heads.

PS: I saved this picture awhile ago and have no source for it.  If this is yours or you know who it belongs to, please shoot me an email, and I will gladly give credit!  

PSS:  If you live in the Birmingham area and are looking for something fun to do this coming Saturday afternoon,  Chill Art is having an art show from 4:30-8:00 pm at Escape Day Spa in Crestline.  It's across from Mafiaoz's (you can't miss it).   

Happy Weekend! M.


  1. This is a fabulous idea! We don't have any beautiful oval windows in our house but I will keep in this mind when I happen to have one of these in our next home.

    Have a wonderful weekend!


  2. What a clever idea! I love it and how true - we fall in love with them and then they provide a design challenge. I agree on the linen idea, too.

    Happy Weekend!

  3. I love that, it still allows the light, is so pretty and delicate looking and love the pretty decorative feeling it adds. Very nicely done!


Thank you for thoughts on my post! M.
