The room has a gorgeous huge window, but it is off center and doesn't really allow for curtains. I've been staying up nights thinking of how to make the window treatments here work and I think I've come up with a plan.
As soon as we move in the window will get blackout roller blind (layer 1). These will be for night time to block out the light from the street.
When budget allows I would like to add roman blinds to the window (with a simple liner just to protect the blind fabric from burning out in the sun). I would like the blind to fit outside the window, right on top of the window frame. In my mind's eye the blind will let some light in and will be used during the day, and generally act all pretty.
But I couldn't rest because these two layers still felt not enough. Something was missing! Until I realized that a cornice would perfectly balance out the shape of the room, give a little glamour and make curtains completely unnecessary.
That's the plan for now.
My brain is beginning to hurt from trying to work out the budgets and timelines for things. This stuff is not cheap (understandably) so I need to figure out things that will be phase 1, 2, 3... and 10. But it feels good to have a plan in place! (plan A that is, I gotta keep it real and allow room to roll with the punches).
