The One Room Challenge continues, and I am working like crazy to catch up. (You can see last week's entrance into the challenge here.)
Today I have a moodboard and a design dilemma. The moodboard for my master bedroom centers around a 10x13 rug I found on Craigslist for super cheap. Nearly everything else is stuff I already own and am repainting/repurposing.
The floral pillow in the board is a Pottery Barn print from years ago. I have a shower curtain in that print and my plan is to attempt to use my sewing machine for the first time to make Euro shams. It will be an adventure.
I own two small bombe chests that I will paint blue for night stands; the round mirror and the curtains are in my garage. The longhorn cow may get yarn-bombed, we'll see how it goes. I'd like to get some monogrammed shams if time permits.
And now for the design dilemma. I have a large fan window and a corner window in my master bedroom, like so:
Dilemma: how to hang the curtains? The giant fan window makes the room a sauna in the late afternoons and needs a cover.
Option 1: hang curtains at 84 inches on both sets of windows. This means the curtains are hung right above the corner windows, and on the middle between the fan window and the window below it. In this scenario the fan window gets a fan pleated accordian paper shade.
It is hard to find pictures of curtains below a fan window, but it would look something like this, with longer curtains:

Option 2: hang curtains unequally. One set above the fan window, which is 120 inches from the floor, so I'd probably have to lengthen a set of curtains by adding a contrasting fabric at the bottom. The corner window would have curtains hung at about 100 inches, because that is the height of the curtains I have.
It would look something like this:
