We recently got Curtains and Rods installed from the below lady. She is very friendly and extremely good at her work and very very competitive. 

Its a 6 bedroom house, and two lounges and one dinning etc.. costed us around 5500 dollars. 
Other people quoted us around 13,000 to 15,000 for very same material and stiching

Is that a Blue Troll or a Pink one ?

Personally I find the blue ones are better at keeping the light out

Thick white thermal curtains would be good, keeping in the same colour as the room has the effect of making the room look bigger and more 'airy'. We got some from spotlight, briscoes or the warehouse (can't remember exactly which one) for $100-$200.

First time I remember fashion advice asked on geekzone : ). I can only say about practical things lol.

You can have white curtains that block outside light coming through. The backing or an inner layer must be made with blackout fabric or similar. Few off the shelf package curtains use it because it adds to the cost. If it uses, it will say blackout on the package.

You can get blackout (it is actually white btw) at any fabric store and it can be added to the back of any curtains you might buy or have made. Actually many fabric/curtain stores like Spotlight have a making service as well.

We got curtains for our new home off eBay UK. We wanted eyelet curtains (round rings pressed into material and slides over a pole rather than normal hooks and rails). The only local stuff we liked had to be custom made and far too expensive. From UK we got what we wanted ready-made for a fraction of the price. Delivered it was cheaper than buying normal curtains here. We did not get thermal or black-out, but we have a new double-glazed home and it is for the living space so we do not want it too dark.

For a bedroom I've read a recent article that purple or red are good for passion (good passion, I don't mean brothel passion). Avoid blue/green unless it is on the north side and hot. Pink is also good, but can sometimes be a but much for the man in the house. And if there is currently no man, there will likely be one in the future. But I do agree that pink one looks great, just do not get Playboy bunny pink.

Our whole house is painted pure white, the same white as printer paper. The living space is warm and we've got navy curtains. Floor is dark timber and furniture is dark brown almost black. Main bedroom will get dark purple wallpaper on one wall and lighter (medium) purple curtains.

All our curtain rails (except net curtain rails) came from Rods & Blinds Direct in Hamilton. The same fancy stuff you get at curtain shops, but cheaper and made to order.

You'll be amazed how much info you'll get on GeekZone, including on fashion. Please just use a more descriptive title.
