I have a love/hate relationship with window treatments, actually, at this moment it's just a Hate relationship. I can't figure out what I want on my family room windows. I wish I could just go with nothing, but then I feel like we are lacking privacy, especially living in a neighborhood. And every time I try to go for a real "prim" look, it just looks messy and like I'm hanging rags in the window.
Here are the curtains I have had up all winter. They were swagged to the side and before that I had them hanging from circle clips on each side of the window so that they could be shut at night.
Then a few weeks ago, I tried something different. I coffee stained some white lace curtains I had from target. They came out really pretty and I thought I would go for more a turn of the century look, like Road to Avonlea. But, I'm not sure I like it.
Then I just took the curtains down all together. And yes, all three of these windows are in the family room and all look like they do in the pics at this very moment :)
So, should I just put a simple muslin valance up? Or just hang the mustard curtains at the sides of the windows again? Or just use the lace curtains by themselves? Or what? I just want a lighter and different look for Spring/summer.
We are headed to the U/S appoitment this afternoon, I hope all goes well.
Have a nice day,
