Decided on Fabric!

Thanks for your input on "masculine" window treatments.  I've fallen in love with this fabric, and when I showed DH he liked it too (it's always good to get buy-in, I find, even if I know it is my call).  I like how the aqua will play off the walls, but the fabric also introduces some new colors!  It's also geometric, which I find more "man" friendly and friendly to a shared space.


Now I just have to decide whether to pay someone to make the valance.  OR buy a sewing machine, order the fabric, then make a valance with a matching pillow for the chaise.

Love the fabric!  As far as whether you should pay someone to make the valance or do it yourself, I figure if you're going to be using the sewing machine for other projects, then you might as well go that route.  I, for one, cannot sew so I'd definitely be paying for it!
