I hope you've forgiven me for my lameville one-picture-post yesterday. Like I said, I was a bit excited when I finally found curtains for our dining room that fit in with our light and white cottage style!
If you've been reading for awhile, you'll know that I've had a difficult time trying to find curtains that look good with the wooden valence over the window. I think that over the last few years I've purchased (and returned) more than ten different styles of curtains for that one window! As a matter of fact I had given up looking for curtain panels and had written a blog post about possibly using antique shutters to dress up the windows instead.
I'm glad I stuck with curtains because they really soften up the room. Check out the before and after picture to see what I mean!
The curtains are a soft, light grey fabric with the prettiest white flowers and leaves printed on top.
The store where I found the curtains also carried white on white curtains but I decided to live on the edge and go with the light grey. Heh heh heh.
I really love how they look from the kitchen. Well, minus the carbon monoxide detector and ladder balanced on a tea light. ;)
I purchased the curtain panels from a local home décor store in our town. They came from a company called Brunelli which distributes bedding, quilts, curtains, etc. to various boutiques and shops. I took a quick look at the Brunelli website this morning and if you click around you can find a page that will find the closest retailer to you. The link to the exact curtains I purchased can be found here.
I'm so, so happy with them!
Since everything is looking so monochromatic I have a few ideas to add a wee bit more colour and contrast into the living room and dining room. Yippee!
P.S. I'm thinking of getting another set of the same curtains for the living room to tie the two rooms together. Whaddaya think?
