I'm still trying to finish up the nursery for my 5-month-old daughter (the room was being built when she was born, otherwise I wouldn't be this far behind). Right now it's dark when she goes to bed; in a few months that will change, so I need to get going on window coverings, but I'm having a hard time deciding what to do.
The main problem I'm having is that instead of closet doors, I'm doing curtains on the closet, and I'm not sure what to do on the closet versus the window - should they match, or just complement (solid on one and pattern on the other?)? Would a shade be better on the window to prevent two different types of curtains looking strange together? Should the window curtains be to the floor (the heat vent is directly under the window) or just the length of the window? If the curtain/shade for one area is inside the trim, does the other one need to be inside the trim (window trim to be installed soon)? Should I do a light-blocking panel plus an additional decorative panel on the window, or just one? You get the idea. Please help! Any other advice, like colors or fabrics, is also appreciated. I'm going for a welcoming, feminine (but not too girly) look.
Since I'm asking, I do have two other questions: what should I put in the large area of bare wall to the left of the crib (as you can see, I have a few frames/pictures on the floor, but they're all fairly small)? And what do you think about the lace above the changing table? It was my great-grandmother's, and I really want to incorporate it into the room, but it's not looking quite how I pictured in its current location. Lastly, if it matters, I'll be replacing the small table with the lamp with a small bookshelf.
