This weekend, curtains are on the agenda.  Originally I had pinned down classic white curtains with black trim (pictured below) for our family room, but I am second guessing the decision.  This week I have been whipping out mood boards for lots of different spaces and I realized I didn’t put a white drape on any of them.  Am I chickening out in my own home?

With so many options, I am not sure where we’ll end up–but I’m dying to know where you stand.  Weigh in friends.

When choosing curtains for my casa, I am most drawn to:

    Good luck in your decision!! We currently have plain white curtains in our living/dining area, but I just ordered a navy blue ikat print that i can’t wait to put up! I like the white but I think a pattern adds SO much to a room.

    P.S. That is awesome that you are doing so many mood boards! Are you going to post about them on the blog? I’d love to see what you suggest to others.

    I am having the same problem! We need curtains and I am so back and forth on what I want… Our house may never be totally decorated because I like too many things; I can’t make a decision! haha

  7. I do a little bit of all three but for your room with the white built-ins I think a pattern would look amazing!

looking for inspiration? 

There was a 10-year-period where everyone (including me) was doing black or almost-black rooms or walls. These days, we want something moody and romantic, but we want warmth back in our lives. We want the “grown-up” version of that look. If you are craving a rich, moody paint color that’s a warm, inviting neutral, then […]
