Not one of them has come easily ( and normally I make flash decisions with very little or no regret at all )
The living room window is long and narrow.................this window will not be changed as it only opens up to the front porch - so a good painting and some pretty drapes should be ok - I knew I wanted a faux silk or taffeta - and I wanted a solid color - although.....................( and it's the although's that are killing me )
Here's what tormented me this week
I LOVE this color - but just may be a little too dark for the cottage-y feel of this house
( although the contrast could be quite beautiful with a white couch in front of it )
Love this Vintage Plum color - soooo pretty for the summer
( although I'm not really interested in buying seasonal drapes )
There's something about these stripes that I just love - a perfect contrast with all the white going on in the room ( although I think they'd start to feel circus-y after a while ) still - they kind of scream Paris, don't they?
LOVE how luxurious the gold is - ( although all of my accents are pewter and silver )
still - there's always spray paint !
Navy could work ( although I have absolutely nothing to tie that into either ) still there's something very cottage-y about Navy and White...................
so do I fall back on my Grey's ? and if I do - what shade do I pick??? ( although I may just be getting tired of my favorite color at this point anyway )
Can't tell you how much I love this honey color ( although again it seems sort of summery to me )
but it would accent the ebony floors so beautifully
Also love this shade of blue - ( although it may be too " cool " for my living room
So.....................in the end I chose grey - blah blah blah - lol
Graphite to be exact - did you really expect anything else from me ???
I know they're dark - not the greatest choice for an already dark room maybe but
the sofa and chair are getting slipcovered in white so it should be a nice deep contrast -
AND they'll always be open - against a white wall................
Inverted pleasts - ( don't get me started on how long it took me to choose a pleat )
oh and just before I checked out - I grabbed 4 panels of these - maybe for the office ( we have 2 windows in there )
I bought them from HALF PRICE DRAPES ( it's like Pinterest - it sucks you in lol )
If anyone is in the market for a wedding dress - you can order these curtains and sew them together - Voila - instant dress - and then you can hang them in your bedroom after the big day - now THAT'S
upcycling at it's finest LOL
Have a great day all !
