Giddy About Curtains
Today I came back to reality though and looked around some of my rooms that are already "finished" in my house. When I decorated my living room I bought very cheap green curtains that worked, but were definitely not my ultimate favorite choice for curtains. For awhile now, I have had a picture like this one in my head for what I would want curtains to look like in my living room.
For some reason I have it in my head that dupioni silk is the perfect texture for these curtains in my living room. Today I went to a fabric store desperately in search of dupioni silk or similar styles of curtains. I came back with swatches of beautiful fabric (maybe they will be nice pillows one day!), but nothing like the picture in my head.
I searched and searched and finally I have landed on a couple of possible candidates for making striped curtains!
At the online fabric store I found dupioni silk in two colors, honey gold and cream.
Aren't they beautiful?!
I have already ordered my samples so I can tell if the colors work together and work in our living room. I am giddily awaiting their arrival!
