Yes, those are new drapes

19 Jul


I never really liked the old drapes. I thought they were a little too stuffy for the space and I wanted something a little bit more graphic. I found these at Ikea and thanks to a very dear friend I was able to have them shipped up from New York. I was a little surprised at just how shear they are and that the print is actually black, not navy. None-the-less  I am still liking them better than the old ones.

Here are the old ones:


Speaking of the living room I’m still playing with the idea of changing the color. It’s just a little more blue than I wanted. I think I’d like to go a little bit deeper, a little bit more serious… like this color I spied this morning on Design Sponge:

I also got some new curtains for the bathroom which you can see here:

The panels still need to be hemmed and I think I’m going to add wide wooden blinds in an espresso finish when I can find some that are reasonably priced since this window faces my neighbor’s driveway.

      you know… its funny, when I put that blue up it was the color I was most unsure of and now it is the other colors in the house I am the most unsure of!

    For what it’s worth, I like the new curtains better, too. Also, most places have sample sizes of paint. When I was trying to decide what color to paint my parlor, I bought 3 or 4 samples and painted them on big sheets of foamcore so I could move them around the room and see how they looked at various times of the day and in different light.
