Need help with picking out new curtains

I just bought a new sectional and I am not that thrilled with it because I thought it would be a lighter gray but such is life. I desperately need help with colors and selecting curtains. I want a clean and classic yet kid friendly.

You can use traversing draperies on all your windows, or you could choose a more economical approach such as using stationary drapery panels to soften the look, but with blinds or shades on each window for privacy and light control. I personally like wood blinds for the ability they give you to adjust the slats to control the amount of light entering the room.

I would use accent colors in the pillows and artwork, and your draperies can mimic those colors or be a neutral off white.

Definitely go for some pattern on the drapes. A piece of art for the wall beside the fireplace is also a must and I would suggest a sofa table behind the sofa facing the hallway so that the view from that direction is more interesting.
