Hanging Around: Curtain updates

I am finally in the process of making some curtains for our house. It’s a process that’s actually very long overdue since we’ve been living here for more than 2 years already, but in some rooms curtains are a necessity and in other they fall in the nice-to-have category. For the necessary ones like the bedrooms, we’ve had block-out curtains since day 1. But the dress curtain has been a lacking feature of our home and since I need to make some curtains for the book, I took the opportunity and starting sewing.

There are so many different options to choose from when it comes to dressing your windows though that it can become a bit overwhelming. But as long as you keep in mind that you are, in fact, DRESSING your windows, it can be a whole lot of fun.

Here are some amazing window dressing ideas that I found.

Vintage Treasures

Why not display those old doilies and handkerchief collection? Beautiful vintage displays from  Hapsistarallaa  & Indulgy.

On Display

A wonderful way to shed some (natural) light on a collection, is to display it in front of a window. Just gorgeous! Via Inspiring Home Style.

Panelled Perfection

Love this alternative take: plank it up or layer it with another window. And why not? If it works, it works! At Home On The Bay & Inspiring HomeStyle

Pretty Decals
