Master Bedroom Drapes

With a third child due to arrive in just a few weeks (okay, 10, but who's counting?) I'm trying to prepare the space before it's too late. We keep our babies in our room for the first 4-6 months. They sleep in an ArmsReach CoSleeper which is the perfect height for our bed. I love it. I can wake up to nurse at night and never leave the comfort of my own covers. And by the time the little person becomes aware enough of our sleep habits that we start to really effect each other, we move them into a crib in another room.

One difficulty we've had is that we installed white wooden blinds in our three windows. We get eastern morning light. Tons of it. By the time our kids were three months old, that seemed to wake them up earlier than necessary, so I had a habit of either draping extra sheets/blankets/towels over the windows or using scraps of blackout fabric.

It was unattractive, annoying, and a constant pain. We'd leave it up for weeks at a time because who wants to mess with that on a baby's sleep schedule? And that made for a rather depressing master bedroom feel.

We also have our bed up against one window, and I've seen great images that suggest framing the bed-in-front-of-window look by installing fantastic drapes.

I found these by accident, and I want them:

It's actually a shower curtain! But the fabric is a thick canvas (I checked), so it could totally work in a bedroom where a little less light is preferable.

I even put together a small inspiration board based on the pattern to give Hawk and idea of what he's in for. I already changed a few things around, but at least this will give you an idea...

We're having to work with the colors of our bedspread and walls because we're just not ready to spring for a whole new paint color and spread set. The color is Restoration Hardware Silver Sage, and the spread is also RH, Eucalyptus. They're really not our thing anymore. So I'm not falling over myself to make this room happen; I am excited about everything new and nothing Silver Sage/Eucalyptus, but what can ya do? More on that whole shanancy later.

Don't you just love the pattern? I'm really into feathers and arrows lately, so this is right up my alley.
