Wearing purda

Q: My wife is not in niqaab but in hijaab Alhamdulilah. I however desire this in my wife and often admire women in niqab desiring this for myself. Am I wrong for having this desire? Have I sinned for wanting this even if not for my wife. My wife is slightly inclined to this but I am not pinning my hopes on this. Do you think this is just my desires disguised? Please give me advise as this is bothering me much.
