I have been debating for months what to do about our family room windows. When we first purchased our 1927 craftsman I quickly ran to Lowe's and purchased faux wood blinds - which was a big mistake. They are hard to clean and do nothing for my home's decor. I would love to find white, thick, patterned curtains to hang up with decorative curtain rods. Here are a few options I have come across courtesy of IKEA (first three options) and World Market.
I may need to purchase one of these options and then attach a white blackout lining to the back. I think a day trip to IKEA is in order soon to see the prospects in person:) What do you think?
