(I wish I had a better, more catchy title... but no.)
Curtains and shades add so much to a room. Here are some pretty pictures for your viewing pleasure:
Following those, here are some definite drapery DON'TS:
Hanging your curtain panels high can add height to your room... but don't hang them too high. Otherwise they'll just end up looking ridiculous like these do.
The fake-drape. Would it have been so bad to actually hang these on a real curtain rod??
I tend to like the idea that simpler is better. Too much trim, ruffles, pleats, pattern... it gets to be too much for me. But, I love the look of layering drapes over shades - natural or fabric.
Just my 2 cents.
Have a great Thursday!
