Curtain fabrics?

I'm fixing to sew my own curtains. Problem is I have no idea what would be a good fabric for that. I need it to brighten up a brown room, very dark room. Ugh...I'm clueless.

The decorator weight fabrics are really nice, but it really depends on what type of curtains your planning to make. Are they panels, cafe curtains, valances??? What type of windows are in your room?

I have a big double window and single window that really need them the most (livingroom). I'm looking for something similar to some curtains I was given. They are a 50/50 cotton and polyester blend.

The thing is I don't know what to look for when shopping for the fabric online. I like a more modern style of clean lines and not really anything frilly.

Here's an image of the curtains that I love.

Do you want them to be washable?

Yeah...washable is a must since things tend to get pretty filthy around here lol. Dad's a heavy smoker.
