What Height to Hang Curtains?

Good Questions

Q: I've decided want to hang curtains in my living room, and I was hoping to get some advice on where/how to hang them. I started by hanging the rod where you see it in the picture (large photo below the jump), but now I'm wondering if it would look better hung above the entire window instead...

For all the curtain naysayers (and goodness knows I used to be one of them!), I do have my reasons. First, the curtains will help immensely with the bad drafts we have in our 109-year-old house. Second, changing the curtains every once in a while (along with pillows and other accessories) would be a relatively cheap and easy way to redecorate when the mood strikes. But if there are other ideas out there, I am open to anything!
