We are doing a gradual makeover of our den/family room, and while I've decided on several things, I'm undecided about what type of window treatments would be best. The room is open to the breakfast nook/kitchen, has a fireplace at the end, one empty wall, and one wall with windows/door to porch. We have the big TV on the empty wall, and the sofa in front of the windows wall facing the TV. It's a small room, about 10x12. The paint is a soft tan/brown (Butte Rock by Benjamin Moore). We are getting a dark blue slipcovered sofa. We have two dark seagrass wing chairs from Pottery Barn on either side of the TV. We've got a new jute natural area rug coming from an online supplier. So the primary colors are sandy brown walls/dark blue slipcovered sofa with natural fiber chairs and rug. We have accented with red (trying to get our entire house theme to be shades of red and blue with neutrals), we have the Pottery Barn red pillows on the chairs and sofa. We also have this photograph framed sitting on top of the mantle that is primarily red

The other thing we have is a large tufted leather ottoman in a chocolate brown, between the sofa and chairs.
So, my question is about window treatments. We have white trim on the windows and it's nothing special. I think we'd like to go with something simple like a roman shade. I have thought about dark bamboo but I don't know if that would be too much natural fiber/brown for one room. We would have to do matching window treatments on the door to the porch, and the breakfast nook and kitchen windows since the rooms are all together almost like one big room.
I wouldn't be opposed to doing a fabric Roman shade on the windows, maybe in a cool red/blue on neutral stripe or something. I don't want to do plaid, that's what our window treatments are right now. If we did the stripe, we could also do a matching pillow to throw on the sofa. Unfortunately, custom window treatments cost a bundle so that is a drawback.
What do you guys think?
