Family Room Curtains

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.
KAJSA Pair of curtains, beige, gray Length: 98 " Width: 57 " Weight: 5 lb 1 oz  Length: 250 cm Width: 145 cm Weight: 2.30 kg  HENNY RAND Pair of curtains, white/brown, gray Length: 98 " Width: 57 " Weight: 5 lb 5 oz  Length: 250 cm Width: 145 cm Weight: 2.40 kg  ALVINE KOTTAR Pair of curtains, white, grey Length: 250 cm Width: 145 cm Weight: 1.30 kg
Burnout Jacquard Curtain Panel, Ivory
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?

  1. I need to find curtains for the boys' room. But I need to paint it first. But I have 3 small children. So, there are towels hanging up moonlighting as black out shades. Sigh. At least it is dark in there for them to sleep!

  2. I like the first and second one :) I can't tell what the third is, is it paisley? While I love the Damask - I think it is starting to be overdone.

  3. Yes, the first and second are my fav! I think with grey walls and white trim it would be just lovely.
