Window coverings are such a pain in the behind, don’t you think? They are expensive and it is hard to find a pattern that can bring the whole room together in one fell swoop.
My to-do list for Fall included new window coverings… so, alas, I took the leap during my last trip to Ikea.
In the den, we had some uber drab beige curtains that came from our apartment.
I replaced them with these Henny Rand curtains, white with brown and gray squiggles. They definitely brighten up the room, which is essential in a room with almost no natural light.
As you know, I have been trying to de-red our living room. Here is an old picture…
I snatched up these Ninni Rund curtains, which are super fancy-schmancy. I love the pattern, but I am still trying to decide if they are too shiny. The light beige definitely makes the room feel bigger. What do you think? The curtain rod will be getting a face-lift soon, as it is currently falling off the wall. Now the challenge is going to be picking a cool muted paint color that will work with these.
Finally, we come to the guest bedroom… where there were no curtains. Gasp!
From far away the curtains almost look neutral, but when you take a closer look they are actually pulling the color from the wall….
What a difference curtains can make. This room has really gone through a facelift in the past month or so. I am really liking it!
So, that’s all for now. Happy Friday and Happy November!
