I ask, you answer? Curtain dilemma.
On this fabulous Friday, I’d love to hear your thoughts on my living room curtain dilemma.
Back when I finalized the mood board for my living room, I chose three fabrics that I will sew into coordinating pillows, dog beds, and curtains. The thing is, I can’t order the fabric until I know how much I’ll need – and I won’t know how much I need until I decide which of the three fabrics will be used for the curtains.
Here are the three fabrics:
The rest of the living room looks like this (sorry for the blurry photos!):
Of course my sofa will look more coordinated and less ‘blah’ when I’ve made the fun pillows. The rug will also be happier when I (eventually) get my nice big rug.
The windows are on the opposite wall from the shelves. There is an ugly HVAC unit under the windows, but a set of mid-century style cabinets are currently being built to fit around it and camouflage it. The furnishings have changed since this window shot was taken:
And the painting that hangs opposite from the sofa looks like this:
With all that in mind, I ask you:
Which of the three fabrics would you choose for curtains in this room?
I’m leaning towards #2, the Orangina pattern. But I’m concerned that the white background of the fabric will be too white against the creamy off-white of my walls. So, what do you think?
