I think you should put the rods above the frames and do connectors the whole way around.  Having seperate curtain rods for all the windows will probably look too cluttered.

With that many windows, it would look nice to create the illusion that the windows are continuous, by having sheers for all the windows and opaque curtains (maybe chocolate brown raw silk) in the spaces between. I’d hang the curtains above the moulding, but that’s really just a personal preference thing–it would highlight the height of your ceiling and unify your room, I think. 🙂

I worry that you wont be able to use connectors because of the angles of your walls. In the photo example they are all right angles. Do they offer connectors in variety of angles? If so I say go with that look but it’s just my personal aethestic.

I agree with the others, I think it would look nice with connectors. Flowy curtains in there will look beautiful!

You can use connectors or you can go to a window covering store and they can custom bend the rods for you.

The rods should definitely give the appearance of one continuous rod and should be placed above the moulding.

Your colors will look best if there is not too much contrast between the walls and the sheers.I think the ivory would look best if you use the chocolate brown silk drapes. You could also use drapery panels closer in color to your walls so the drapes do not become the focal point of the room.

Another option would be to use roman blinds fitted inside each window and the drapery panels as a above. The shades can be left up to allow all that beautiful light inside or dropped down for privacy.

I like the idea of connectors. I would definitely mount the rods above the window casings, i find the first picture might catch your eye too much and make the room seem shorter. By hanging them above it tricks the eye in to seeing a higher ceiling.. in my opinion anyway.

Sorry, I didn’t notice your last post. What about shutters? Or faux shutters/wide blinds such as: http://www.housetohome.co.uk/products/type/soft_furnishing/blinds/Bi-folding_Shutters_676.html?subslug=  

(I just randomly grabbed a photo off google but you get the idea)

That way it would be off the floor, you can control the amount of light that comes in, but they are also bi-folding so you can fold them off to the side for full view out the window?
