My husband and I currently have very bla window curtains and would like to replace them to match are recent attempts to update our house to a more modern look and feel. Currently, our curtains have a country cottage look and we would like to replace them with new curtains or blinds. Our main concern is the family and dining room. We have dark hardwood flooring and a light olive like paint on our walls. our furniture is a mixture of beige, rod iron and glass. I always see these shows on HGTV were decorators come in grab some old bedding, trim it and attach it to a nice curtain rod and sometimes it looks great. This is not necessarily what we want and we have a decent budget to work with. We just want something that looks good now and for the next few years. What window treatments could anyone suggest to complement our new look.
You could go with some interior shutters, they can be painted or stain any color to match your different rooms. Wood shutters are a bit expensive but are have a very high class look.

I just bought a new house and we're moving in at the end of this month, and I have a similar quandary about window treatments for the formal dining area. I also really like a clean, modern look. Some of those jacquard draperies I've seen in stores are just too much--too over the top for my taste. In my opinion, the drapes/curtains in a room should not be a focal point. They are not there to be a work of art, but rather to highlight a lovely window and bring a room together. Also, I really like natural light. I am thinking of simple sheer panels with some darker panels framing them on a pretty, modern looking rod. For a less formal room, I would really consider something like a natural woven fabric roman shade. This window treatment is durable and easy to install And, of course, there's always nice wood blinds, which keep the room looking really clean and simple. Do you know how to sew? Curtains are so easy to make--and that might give you a lot more options for picking out a fabric that you absolutely love and that goes with all your furnishings.
I think that classic drapes/curtains are the way to go. Maybe just get an upgraded material with a more simplistic design.
