Ideas for Covering this Small Window?

Good Questions

Q: As we start converting our guest room into a nursery, I'm stuck on what to do with the window. While it was a guest room, I just left it uncovered - we didn't have that many guests and it didn't seem like that big of a deal! But now with a little guy on the way, I'm not sure what to do for a window treatment. As you can see, it's small, just 3 feet by 4 feet (including the frame), and the bottom of the frame is 4 feet off the floor. It opens in the middle and faces north. I'm not usually a fan of cafe curtains which is what the previous owners had up, though maybe someone has a great version that would convert me. Any ideas?
