Pretty bathroom blinds

I'm currently trying to find some nice blinds for our bathroom. It's a small room but has 2 windows (1 tiny; 1 large; both frosted). We're painting the room in F&B blackened, have a cast iron bath painted in F&B downpipe, have tiled in white metro tiles with pale grey grout and have limestone flagstones. Sinks and loo etc are white and all taps and fittings are chrome / nickel. I'm trying to find blinds which will keep it light and airy but don't want to go for just plain white or another plain colour. Either something with a bit of embroidery (in white?) or something with a subtle pattern (maybe pale grey / blue?) would be lovely. Or maybe we need some actual colour - although my feeling is that this will be too much for the room and make it busy. I'm looking for something quite "pretty" as it's otherwise quite a function masculine space. Just wondering if anyone has seen anything that might fit the bill or has any suggestions as to good ranges of material / blinds. I've found nothing I like so far and have trawled far and wide!

Marking this place, as we're renovating too. And in Australia.

Would you consider a Roman blind?

I was having awful problems finding something for our kitchen diner then came across Roman Blinds direct. They weren't too expensive to have made. Loads of choice and I'm 100% delighted with themsmile

Definitely up for Roman blinds as DH wants blackout blinds and blackout material can be sewn into the back of the fabric, so not as limited as roller blinds. Thanks for the link, shall have a look now. smile

I didn't consider Roman blinds as I'd never had them before. I had 'roller blind' glued into my brain and didn't look at anything elseconfused. I stumbled on that site purely by chance and the choice is amazing.

You can have different linings added.

Hope it helps anyway. I know how dizzy I was going looking for something I likedgrin.

Hey Chewing Fab, fab, fab recommendation. I've just ordered up a whole batch of samples. I also plugged in the window sizes with blackout material and they're super reasonable too! Thank you VERY much thanks
