Good Questions: Bedroom Window Coverings?

Hi, AT — I've recently overhauled my bedroom, getting rid of an old waterbed and moving all the furniture in the small, narrow room around (regrettably, the bed in front of the window is the best option). I love the new wall color and my bedding, but at at somewhat of a loss for what to do with the window treatment, on both the color and style front. Right now, the room feels light and airy, and I like that...

I was thinking maybe something with brown in it, but I think it might weigh it down too much; also, while I do like the brown touches, I don't want to be wedded to them, as I'd like to switch out the duvet cover and bedskirt from time to time, to something with no brown involved. Assuming you all agree I need SOMETHING there beside the roman shade, what do you think? (For the record, I don't like anything fussy or fringy.) The only other changes coming to the room the fact I'd like to lose the floor lamp eventually and will get a new beside lamp, probably this one, or something similar. Thanks much for your help.

I'm not certain you need anything more than the Roman Shade — especially if you are going for light and airy. The one thing that the floor lamp brings to the room is some height. Losing the dark, vertical floor lamp might call for a vertical element that could be achieved with curtains...Anyone else?
