Decorating Help, please!!!

Todd and I had our room painted last February right before we got our new, grown up bedroom furniture.  I still haven't put up curtains in the room.  I have bought a gazillion, but none of them looked right against the paint, so I've also returned a gazillion of them What I thought was a basic beige paint, is actually a little pinkish it turns out.  It looks great with the dark wood of the furniture, but I'm going to have to go with just white curtains.  I have the added difficulty that I have to do the two windows on one side of the wall and I also need curtains for the two closets on the opposite wall.

Do I do 4 of the same style curtain?  Or 2  for the windows, and 2 different for the closets?

And, I prefer silk curtains, but have had a difficult time finding white silk curtains that I like.  Here are a few ideas, I've found.  Please chime in!!!

I did find these, which are the duponi silk that I love.  But now I'm not sure.  Do I need to switch my comforter to a more "like" material with the silk curtains being less than two feet from my bedspread?  arg!!!  I was going to switch the bedding anyway, but I wasn't planning on going silky.  Dry clean only bedding simply isn't an option in my house.  There are too many children with dirty fingers.

Thank you in advance for all of your ideas.
