Good Questions: Disguising Off-Centered Windows?

ATDC reader Barbara has a question about hanging drapes on a wall with uncentered windows: "I am planning to install a 144" curtain rod that run the span of my bedroom wall. The only issue with this is that the windows on that wall are not perfectly symetric. One of the windows is directly against the connecting wall, while the other window has about a foot of wall space before the it reaches the connecting wall...

...The goal is to hang four simple panels that will flank both sides of each window like I did in my living room (see yellow sofa picture above). I'm concerned this will draw more attention to what is already an imperfect situation.

Any tips how to approach this issue?
Thanks, Barbara"

Barbara,

We are not sure you can hide the off-centered windows if you hang panels and open them (closed panels is obviously another story). Do any readers have tips to share with Barbara about dealing with off-centered windows? One piece of advice we do have- considered covering those radiators either in separate boxes or in one large enclosure running the length of the wall.
