Cafe rod/curtains with roller shades?
I am at a loss at how to dress my 2 bedroom windows. I need something soft and romantic, but tailored and unfussy. I think long panels will be too much for the space. I would love a simple cafe rod placed 1/3 of the way down from the top of the window---with a simply white sheer curtain hanging from rings. This would be lovely---BUT, my issue is how do I darken the room on the slim chance that I might sleep in one weekend (we have 3 kids and a dog....so while the chance is slim....I am hopeful it will happen one day.) :) I just would like the OPTION of darkening the room if I wish.
If I mount a roller shade to the top of the window, will that look silly? Any other ideas? I really do not want a valance (while I know that would solve the problem of hiding the top of the roller shade when it is rolled up.)
