Covering an awkward window to create a curtain wall

Hi everyone! So many amazing ideas here, and thank you for reading this! I built my home with one awkward side window that I've regretted ever since because I always have the blind down for privacy and it limits me being able to place my king bed centered on that wall! I'm sick of having the bed centered between the two windows I have on an adjacent wall and want to totally flip the room. My idea was to create a full wall of curtain/fabric in blackout drapes in velvet for a luxe look to completely cover that wall with the weird lone window and let me redesign the space by putting my king bed and nightstands on THAT wall (fabric behind the bed). I have seen a few inspirational rooms here that make me believe it can look great if done well! I have crown molding that is white so I am wondering what type of curtain track would you recommend, and what kind of hooks will make it look elegant and partially hide the track!? I really like a pinch pleat this possible? The wall is 15 ft so I am guessing I need approximately double the fabric in panels so that it looks full and luxe. I'd love to hear your thoughts and recommendations! Thank you in advance!
