How to Treat 6'x3' Kitchen Window?

Good Questions

Q: This kitchen window needs some kind of window treatment to soften the space, but I can't figure out what. I'm moving toward a modern look and may paint at some point. Also my place is very small and we have three kids, so it has to be practical. I'm not a big fan of the horizontal valance. I'm looking for suggestions for something that has a touch of sophistication but doesn't overdo it. Any ideas?
