When we moved into our house a year and a half ago, we were somewhat relieved to find that the previous owner left her window treatments. Since we were new homeowners who had recently purchased a washer/ dryer/ fridge/ bedroom set, we decided to keep the window treatments she left since they were okay, and leave that expense for another day. Well my friends, that day is here. And I couldn’t be more excited! Here’s what the windows in our living area looked like before:
The living room:
The dining room:
Like I said, they aren’t awful, the rods and finials are on the ornate side, which doesn’t exactly jive with the rest of our style. And while I do like the red curtains, the green curtains don’t coordinate with anything else in our living area and they had definitely seen better days.
I ran to Pottery Barn and my hubby did the labor:
And this is what I have now!
Dining Room (I’m recycling the old curtains from the living room here…):
I love this print!!! I’ve never been brave enough to use a print on curtains in my home, and I was pretty nervous about it. But the nice thing about this little eating nook in our kitchen is that the decor in this room doesn’t change with the seasons as it does in the rest of the house, so I don’t have to worry about having the curtain coordinate with all my seasonal decor.
The other thing I really like is that you can see this room all the way from the front door, and it’s really quite striking to see this gorgeous print right when you walk into our home:
