I have a curtain problem. I love what I have, plain white canvas. I love them in the summer that is. This time of year makes me long for more coziness, something that a white room and white curtains doesn't necessarily give in the winter time. But there is a problem, I'm a big cheapo. I often times find myself in a fabric store, drooling over a fabulous print. One glance at the $30 a yard price tag (honestly, look at these windows, it would cost a fortune) and my throat locks up in a death grip. Here are photos of what I'm dealing with (as if I haven't posted these before).
I found these curtains online, and on sale. I once saw a room at Christmas with drapes similar to these and it looked very fun and cozy. My worry is two fold: 1. I do not want to go the 'country' route. I do love country style, but more of a thrifty, cottagy kind. Will this be too 'down on the farm' for my living room? 2. I'm worried that the pattern may be more beige and red and will look dirty with the white walls. Any thoughts? Suggestions? These would be seasonal drapes, I do plan on going back to light and airy in the spring.
In other news... I'm also getting a little tired of my couch. The sage green color is not my thing anymore. It is much more dark and earthy than I like. I'm thinking slip cover, but I have no idea how to make them. This could get interesting, or chaotic. My mom always used to say, "Don't pick at a healed sore." Maybe I should just take her advice and leave the entire living room alone. :)
