Black out window shades kind of remind me of support (panty)hose that stewardess' wear. Heavy duty and not so pretty. Well, simple solutions are always the best don't you think?
Here's virtual business at its best: Joanna Goddard of A Cup of Jo blog fame needed help with her baby nursery. She collaborated with interior designer Jenny Komenda of Little Green Notebook and they came up with the cutest darn baby nursery ever. In addition to hand painting the black out blind with soft clouds herself, Jenny even sewed the curtains for BABY Toby's room.Now that's some interior designer. Way to go Jenny!!

Even though the clouds are kind of nursery-ish, you could come up with an image that suits your own style.
