The Curtain Exchange

My bathroom has statuary marble shower, floors in black and white, and Wedgwood blue shantung silk wallpaper. But it has the ugliest window! At 24" square, it sits an ungainly 13" from its top to the ceiling. Should I be considering a valance, or a curtain, or both? And what size would a valance be? or a curtain?

With either a valance or curtain, you run the risk of highlighting an architectural anomaly you should be downplaying. But a Roman shade, perhaps in crisp white linen, would not only add privacy if you require it, but also an elegant texture that wouldn't compete with your Wedgwood blue wallpaper.
