Master Bedroom Curtains: makeover update

Dear Chicago House,

Hurray, I can dance naked in my bedroom... at last you have curtains on the windows! I debated long and hard about what to do for window treatments. I wanted privacy but maintain the lovely light that fills you. The last thing I wanted to do was go overboard as your previous owners had and make the room a dark and drab chamber.( see photo of master bedroom progress)

Roman blinds, mini blinds, curtains, double pole, single pole, lights and airy , patterned?...choices, choice, choices!

Good old IKEA came to the rescue and I was so please with the way the curtains I had hung in the master bedroom of the sibling house had turned out, I decided that was the way to go for you too.

With a total of six windows I thought something plain yet elegant would work best and the grommet tops add a contemporary touch.

This master bedroom is well on its way to recovery after years in darkness! ( see horrible window treatments here)
