What type of window treatments for this room? Sign In/Join 
posted
This room doesn't get any direct sunlight and is usually darker. This is the same room I will be painting a lighter tan color with a blue accent wall behind the bed (disregard the green color currently on the walls).

What would you do for window treatments on the windows flanking the bed and the small little one in the corner by the desk? I don't want to block any light from getting in.

Another option is to lose the accent wall and do all walls Manchester Tan and blue accents - window treatments as well (solid or patterned - don't know).

I'm glad you don't need light blocking because my first thought was something light and sheer.

ok. after seeing your last post I also like the idea of a panel with color or pattern as an accent if you are doing an all neutral wall paint.

I'm not a fan of accent walls (but that's me, it's your room) and since your headboard is tan, I would do all of the walls in the blue you've chosen and because you have a lot of colors in the bedding that you've shown, you could use any one or more of them as an accent.

You can make the windows look larger and let in more light if you place the rods outside of the windows so the panels will hang on the wall instead of covering the window.

If you need privacy at night, I happen to love the pleated shades that "disappear" when you push them to top.

How about tan curtains that match the headboard and a few on the bed to tie it in?

Christy, I also am not a fan of accent walls, unless the architecture of the room suggest a reasonable use there.

Unless you need the softness of fabric a/c weather etc., why not just leave the windows dressed as they are?

I also love the idea of painting the entire room blue. Your bed would really stand out. I would also go with an asymmetrical type of window treatment, like one of these in a simple cream or beige tone.

Or like this one. Oh, I also forgot that I would paint the trim and doors bright white, instead of the wood color.

Ooh, I love both of those rooms FM.

I meant add a few pillows on the bed to tie them in with tan curtains.

Much better way to go. If you think the room is too dark now, the blue wall will make it more so.

Hope i could give some better idea to you, you can go with string curtains which perfectly filters sunlight or else you can go with voile curtains. Go with some white or any other light shades which would enhance the room. I would like to suggest curtainsandcurtains.com where you can find huge number of string curtains and voile curtains collections..




String curtains from curtainsandcurtains.com

Christy,

Did you decide on the paint colors yet? i like those two colors above and agree not to do an accent wall.

Something similar to the WT that FM posted would look nice in the room.

Here are a couple of patterns that might give you ideas.

I too like the idea of blue walls and white trim. The room won't be too dark if a lighter hue value is used and the bed will, dare I say(?) POP.

Hi Christy!

I would go with white sheers and hang them close to the ceiling making sure they touch the floor. It would help to balance the height of the pictures you hung behind your bed-making it look more balanced. The same with the small window by your table (the wall looks a bit narrow-I'd hang just one panel there and attach a curtain tie back like this pic...

Redo, you've been reported as advertising. If you really wanted to join this board, you would take all your advertising off!
