Curtain Love

What is the easiest way to add drama to a room?  The standard answers are lighting and paint but I have a different answer.  It's draperies!  In my opinion, nothing adds drama and warmth to a room like a beautiful pair of panels.

I just whipped these up this weekend.  There are so many tutorials online that I didn't even bother to slow myself down with picture taking.  If you're interested in a good tutorial, Isabella & Max Rooms has a great one here.


I agonized over the fabric selection but finally settled on Dwell Studio Bella Porte in Charcoal.

I'm getting close to the first room reveal of our new house which will be this room.  A few pillows need to be made first using some of my fabric scores.

Here's a sneak peak at which one I might be using.

  14. EEK! Very exciting! I couldn't agree with you more. I'm working with two friends right now, both of which are in desperate need of new draperies. And I know a few rooms in my home that could use some new draperies too - I love these, they're awesome! Looking forward to you reveal.

  29. My "go to" color for drapes is white. I love that you've gone with something dark and bold. Now I'm wondering why I've been so safe all these years with boring old white!
