Reader’s Choice: Curtain Call!

Today’s poll will be the icing on the studio’s cake.  In this crazy turn of events, we have allowed you readers to design my new art studio. You have voted on color scheme, ceiling color, area rug and lighting and now we turn our attention to curtains.  The old nursery-turned-studio has a large window on one wall that definitely needs some dressing:

I wasn’t overly-excited about any of the curtain options I was finding.  I wanted something fresh and inspiring and then I came upon the tapestries at Urban Outfitters and I thought, “Those would make some pretty amazing curtains.”  I know they won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, but the room is in dire need of a punch of pattern play and these huge tapestries will provide just that.  So, which is it going to be?:

1, 2, 3
You’ll notice I have put the winning ceiling color, area rug and light fixture next to the choices for reference.  I think any of these tapestries-turned-curtains will go great in the studio and I can’t wait to hear what you all think.  Vote now and feel free to play designer and weigh in below on why you chose what you did.
P.S.  Don’t forget to cast your daily vote for our Exterior Melodrama.  It only takes 2 seconds to hit a “Love it” button.  We want this one, bad.

    I LOVE your curtains! Good choice with #2 :) Just wondering if you used one tapestry for the curtains and halfed it and sewed them or was it one tapestry as a curtain panel (2 total?) thanks :)

    We got two of them, but they are very wide which works for this room because we wanted the curtains to flank the entire wall. You could definitely get by with just one though.

    ok, thanks! :) I’m just so glad to have found this! I haven’t found the right curtains anywhere and would never have thought of using a tapestry.

    Love #1 and #2 but I think #2 give you a little more color flexibility as you accessorize and as the room evolves. #1 seems to lock you into lots of red. But it sure is pretty.

    Hmm. Not sure. The readers have voted on every element so far, but the room is about complete. But if I do come across anything else in the studio that takes some deciding–I’ll definitely leave it up to a vote!

    I’m thinking one on each side for this room, although I can totally see how one pulled to the side could look amazing in other spaces as well!

    I love how crazy both #1 and #2 are, but I think the brown tones #2 down a little more. That’s what I’m going with.

  • BEYOND in love with #1!

    This is such a fun idea. Will there be anything else to choose!? :)

    i was initially all over #1…then i kept looking at them and decided #2 gave more options for other “stuff” and a little less crazy. you do have to work in there, after all.

    One more question… will there be one of these pulled off to the side, or two of them like regular curtains?

    While I love both #1 and #2 I have to go with #2. There is just something about it…maybe the darker colors for contrast. I don’t know, but its calling my name and I am voting for it!
    P.s. I am a little sad that the sphere light didn’t win.

    Yes of course crazy good! Crazy good like how your ceiling is teal. I’m dying to see this room come along. Edge of my seat, here!!
