I've gotten a lot of requests for pictures of the new house and it's not that I don't want to share them, but I'm waiting on blinds to be delivered...and installed...and the friendly Lowe's people to call me back to tell me when that might happen.
Window treatments to me are like mascara...which is pretty funny, considering that I rarely wear mascara, with one child pulling all the contents out of my vanity drawers and the other latched firmly around my ankle. Maybe one day I'll get back to it...sort of like plucking my eyebrows...
But I digress.
So I hate to put up pictures of the house until it's finished. Still, I am at a standstill on what I want to do with my front windows and I need your help.
To fill you in, we ordered thick white blinds to go on all the windows. I'm not sure if you would call these plantation or not, but I believe they are about an inch thick. Keep that in mind when looking at the pictures.
Here is the subject at hand. I'm not sure if you would call this an official bay window, but it is curved and I took the picture from a distance so you couldn't see the snot and hand prints from my lovely little children, looking for their daddy to come home. That both irritates my Windex toting side yet pulls so hard at my heart strings that I normally don't care.
Let me show you the rest of the room so you get an idea.
Couch, complete with the Princess and the Frog Seek and Find book that Rachel was attempting to rip to shreds earlier in the day.
I love this blue behind-the-couch-table and was thinking of looking for curtains that carried the dark brown of the leather with the blue of the couch. My children have really gotten into playing, "Go to Sleep" - which is why there are blankets all over. They take turns laying down and kissing and hugging each other and their stuffed animals goodnight. This is especially funny considering that it has become quite the daunting task to get Elizabeth to go to bed lately. It also normally winds up in a battle for one of the blankets.
And Rachel has obviously found the canning jar grabber thing. Sigh...
And my oldest is reading and playing the princess piano book with her feet. I swear, never the dull moment around here! But back to the windows.
I'm concerned about the curtain rods. I liked this article and woman's idea from A Little of This - A Little of that. She spray painted and used PVC pipe instead of expensive curtain rods and I think that looks nice, but do you think it would work on this window?
I also liked these curtains from The Yellow Cape Cod.
But do you think that would be too bold for the brown and the blue? Also, do you think two curtains on each end or I was kind of thinking of putting two panels on each window.
Sort of like this...
Thanks for your help! And of course, I'll give you pictures through the process!
