When I look at other blog posts, there are a couple of things I am quick to notice.  One of them is curtains. I sort of sway against calling them window that's a word I don't associate with in a positive way.  To me that's a sad word. Curtains and roman shades are not sad (at least when they're done well).

Previously, I have taken note of curtains in the home of Nanette Lepore.

What I like about these two particular photos are the curtains, drapes, or even window treatments...if you will. White wall, bold curtains.  I love it. 

Today, I found this photo.  Source, unknown.

Same story, third verse....White walls, bold curtains, drapes, or window treatments if you will.
This is a style I have been drawn to in my own home.  Currently I have white walls with black curtains hanging floor to ceiling.  Drama...I just love it.

With this idea in mind, I'm trying a little bit of color (other than black) myself.

I absolutely love it.  The only problem is that my black curtains have about 6 layers of lining in them which makes them hang in a rather lush manner. The yellow curtains only have 1 layer of lining.  With the two hanging next to each other the result is similar to that of a bath towel hanging next to tissue paper.  Somewhat problematic/pathetic. 

The question now becomes, do I purchase 4 panels of this yellow and have it lined, or do I stick with what I've got.  There is that wonderful little saying, "if it isn't broke, don't fix it".  

***disclaimer:I do not plan to have both black and yellow curtains up. 
I would just have one or the other. I just wanted to clarify that. 


  1. Well, being a Kansas girl and a proud Jayhawk, you CANNOT (I repeat CANNOT) have Missouri Tiger colored curtains.........

  2. I know exactly who this came from....this is an EXTREMELY valid point!
