Now that the closets are being put in upstairs, we can finally move forward with painting and decorating (yessss). One of the first things I like to add to a space are curtains. They add such a warmth that a newly decorated room really needs. Our bedroom has one large window in the front as well as two regular sized windows. We currently have brown blackout curtains on the front window, which are from my old college apartment and don't really fit the window, let alone the decor I'm going for. But in searching for the right curtain or fabric to make my own, I recently came across the idea of painting curtains! The possibilities are endless! After much debating, I narrowed the options down to two patterns.
I love the boldness and simplicity of stripes. They also add a bit of darkness without blocking out too much light. And of course, horizontal stripes draw the eye sideways, making the room seem larger.
