A lot of new homes have arch topped windows and there are various ways to design drapery treatments for these windows.
Your drapery treatment should compliment your windows, not clash with them. An arch topped window would look better with a treatment that follows the architecture of the window, that is, that follows the curve. A professional interior designer will always try to work with the architecture of the window.
Too many window treatments are made to sway down under the curve of the window and usually they look terrible from the inside and the outside. It is important that an arch topped window has a drapery treatment that looks good from the inside as well as the outside.
There are many ways to handle curved top windows. Here are a few of the drapery designs that I have used in my client's homes.
This formal drapery treatment consists of a tall pleated valance with fringe . I ran the drapery treatment to the ceiling to add heighth and drama.

This client wanted a simpler drapery treatment that still complimented their arch topped windows. I used side panels with a decorative wood rod and finials. The wooden rings match the rod and finials.
In this dramatic master bathroom I used a formal swag treatment for this arched window.
As you can see there are a lot of good ways to design drapery treatments for arched topped windows.
