Affordable window treatments

I would like to entitle this little number the "Drama Queen"
What's a queen style room without the drama?
This living space is grand!
18 ft high ceilings and 22 ft wall of dramatic windows
How do we add the "drama" without losing the beautiful architecture?
I know..... I will Create something Fab

We decided to compliment the architectural features by attaching medical tracks to the ceiling, which made them fully functional, then build a facing with the same crown molding that is already featured in the room.

We felt like trapeze artist hanging these puppies up. Don't try this at home kids!
How many yards for this dramatic effect you ask? 250 yards of rich chocolate silk fabric and liner, triple pleated baby!
It felt like I was sewing a parachute at one point, I was swimming in chocolate silk. At any time of the day these drapes can be shut close for a complete blackout effect, also a great insulator from the outdoor elements which is huge plus for those heating and cooling bills.
Ciao for now
