You have a high contrast room- red, black and white.  Normally, I am a neutral curtain kind of girl, but in this case you must be comfortable with color or you wouldn’t have chosen that red.

I would look for a print or a geometric that had red, grey, white and maybe black(the black is not necessary). If you can purchase matching fabric, you coould cover a couple of pillows wit the same fabric. That way it would look like you pulled the colors for the room from the fabric. For the other pillows, I would choose a geometric, like a quatrefoil, or a stripe.

I would do standard drapes on the red wall, hanging the rod almost as high as you can get it. I would pick a wooden rod that won’t stand out from the wall. I would do a roman shade in the same fabric for the window on the white wall as it looks like you plan on having your tv on that wall.

I would do very neutral drapes and put color into the sofa pillows instead. Crisp white drapes would look classy.

@bmb5260:  I think wooden blinds would look nice with a valance at the top. Here is a couple pics I found for inspiration.

I second PPs suggestion of wooden blinds.  We have them (well faux wood).  And they look great.

i would do two panels for the big window and just one panel that can sit on the left side of the wall for the smaller window.

I don’t know how much you’re looking to spend, but crate and barrel has some nice (IMO) patterned neutral-ish colored curtains.

We have these and they look great on our navy wall. Great contrast without being too crazy.
