Happy Friday! Today, I would like to share some new curtains I ordered from wayfair.com. A home, just isn't a home (to me) if it doesn't have the warmth of curtains on the windows.
I purchased the Stripped Faux Silk Taffeta Curtains. I like my curtains to slightly puddle on the ground, so instead of the 84" standard window length, I got the 50"X108" length. I am so pleased with the quality. These curtains are heavy and lined with white on the inside. I think they really look like silk, but without the price, faux is just fine with me. ;)
I had initially thought to use curtain clips, but decided that I liked the
Pole Pocket with Hook Belt and Back Tabs just fine.
I purchased the curtain rod from Home Depot.
See, is this window calling for curtains, or
I hung the curtains and then decided I needed to add a little Tuscan flair! ;) So, up went a metal wall embellishment.
See, this window just needed a little drama. Boring to better, right?
I started to move my accessories around, brought in some black accents (like a bookcase) which I am using to showcase some cute kitchen/Tuscan-style decor.
I love the colors yellow, red, gold, brown, and green together.
I tried to find items in my storage area that would coordinate with my new curtains.
Does it look Tuscan-esque to you?
My chairs go well with the curtains, too!
To the far left, I removed the wall shelf and brought in the black bookcase. As cheap as the bookcase is, I still like seeing my nick-nacky things. I can't help myself, lol!
(a few pictures down, you'll see the bookcase)
I added a lemon next to Mr. Roo for summer!
Here's my old Walmart bookcase.
I love displaying this cookbook, Savoring Tuscany.
Adding little jugs and topiary plants here and there.
Placed a fork and spoon in this container....to add a little kitchen feel to it!
I like to add lots of garden balls into my summer decor, actually they are a staple in my everyday decor. Ha!
Here is the Rooster arrangement I just shared.
Here sits another Roo right on top of the black bookcase.
Adding lemons and oranges to my summer decor.
Lastly, and it's so true...the kitchen is the heart of the home! :)
Isn't is funny how changing one thing (in my case, the curtains) leads to more changes in accessorizing, or re-arranging furniture? Does that happen to you, too? ;)
Cha-cha-changes! I liked these curtains so much, I ordered another set for my sliding glass door. I'll share that soon!
Have a great weekend, everyone!
