I am seriously dysfunctional when it comes to decorating, and dressing for that matter. If it isn't put together for me on the manequin, I don't know what to do. Now I have a beautiful new house, and I know it is not living up to its' potential. Help!

New Curtains, Courtesy of Mimi

So here is a shot of my new family room curtains, courtesy of my mom.  The fabric is a nice almost linen blend in tan with cranberry red dots.  I am trying to pick up the color in the rug, but with the walls being tan, I wonder if I should have gone with a bolder color on the windows?  My husband is not a fan of bold, so I was hesitant to do anything crazy in the family room, where we spend so much of our time.  I thought he would like them, but alas, no.  What do you think?  I find it challenging to dress these windows because they are three across with transoms.  We also already have blinds on them (that were there when we moved in), and knowing how expensive a house full of blinds are, I am hesitant to take them down.  Should I pull/tie the curtains off to the sides or just leave them hanging?  Any thoughts would be appreciated!!!

 A pic of the windows (the rod was left there by the first owners and I am not sure if it works or not)
