I don't believe a window is properly finished unless it has both curtains and a roller shade to filter the sunlight and soften the harsh edges of the frame. For my place I found these really nice roller shades in a woven fabric called Trevira, that has a soft, natural, linen-y look to it. I also chose the off-white "vanilla" color to warm up the room and balance nicely against the China White on my walls and Dove White on the trim. Made to order, they have a solid beaded chain control, came in about one week with free shipping, and I installed them easily myself.
