Windows have always had that ability to become a focal point of many home interiors whether directly or indirectly, because of their function to radiate light and create warmth and transparency. It's important not to limit these portals of imagination to something that must be "covered"- curtains and window treatments should allow the window to interact with the room besides simply performing a function.
Victorian window shades are often made of bold, medium to heavy weight material. Laces, tassels, and other various forms of ornamentation often adorn stately valances and flowing drapes. Scalloped sheer fabrics and sometimes lace are common. The trend seems to be that the focal point is the window treatments, not the windows. Alternatively, another beautiful Victorian look requires scrapping the blinds and instead using mosaic stained windows.
With curtains, consider placing a chic, modern oval mirror on the opposite wall to help reflect light. This is important since curtains do prohibit some natural light from entering your home. Pairing them with a mirror can help increase the amount of natural light you receive during the day.
