Creating an Illusion

I've had this idea in my head for awhile and I wasn't sure if I was crazy or it was a great idea...still not sure what other people will think-I love it, but my husband gave me the 'are you crazy' eyes when I did it. 
We have a window in our stairwell and I've always wanted to do something with it, but it was a short window so I never wanted to take light away. Well I came up with the idea of getting blinds and handing them higher than the actual window. I, also being the procrastinator that I am....kept putting this off...that is until my parents gave us 3 blinds from their house. Two of them went into E's room and the last one ended up being the perfect size for the window. 
Maybe I'm crazy but I think it gives the illusion that the window is larger. 

That's my 2 cents for the day.
