I have a confession: I know nothing about window treatments. I try to add drapery to the windows, but I just don't feel like I am doing a good job at all. Let's just say I don't feel like the windows are living up to their "full potential". Plus, it doesn't help that I've been bit by the home-decorator bug and want to completely redecorate/paint everything! So basically I need lots and lots of inspiration to get me started to recreate the look that I want.
[Another confession: I am terrified of adding patterns to large pieces. Little pillows, a throw, of course! But never anything that I wouldn't easily (and inexpensively) change out. But I must say, I LOVE these curtain panels! The color is so bright and cheery, and even the pattern adds an eclectic charm. Something to consider...]
[Ahh, neutral curtains. *swoon* So clean yet not at all understated. Love. And I really like the grommet paneling. So chic!]
[I just adore this Pewter Gray color on these panels. And I have been trying to add a little more gray in my home decor, like I discussing in last week's post. And the dark curtain rod adds a nice contrast.]
[Yet another pattern that I simply love! The carved circles on this one is so subtle that it almost blends in with the ivory curtain. I can totally see this in my home.]
[Even though I can't physically touch the fabric through the computer screen, I am assuming the texture is very soft and earthy. This is another neutral curtain panel that is definitely not understated. And the rope tie-backs make the entire look.]
Okay, I must warn you these next few photos are not inspiring or motivational. Here is what my windows look like now:
As you can see, there are actually 4 panels up to make the 2 windows seem like one large window. And since I don't sew, I never joined to 2 panels on either side together to make one thick panel. So I am constant having to rearrange them to keep them from gaping.
There. That's better. Well, sort of.
I also have a single window with the same window treatment. One wall is painted yellow and another adjacent wall is painted green (it was already like that when we moved into the house). I decided to go with red curtains to give it a Starbucks look. But now I want to paint the walls a more neutral color and will need window curtains to go along with the transformation. And I think buying longer panels and raising the curtain rod to the ceiling will elongate the walls.
What do you think?
