We finally purchased and installed the remaining curtains in our home! All that was left was the living room and the dining room.
(Don't get me started on our kitchen. I am seriously submitting our story to any kitchen show that will not submit a restraining order for the amount of times I've submitted our kitchen photos. The 80's called and want their oak and laminate back. HA.)
We purchased both curtain rods from Cost Plus World Market, but found a classic dark gray curtain set from Z Gallerie, of all places. Actually, these curtains look more blue/green/gray in person and in our living room. They're perfect and my favorite ones in the house, hands down.
The remaining set for our dining room was from Pottery Barn. (Seems I have a thing for their curtains.) These silk ones really went with the theme of our dining room. They're classic, refined, but not too stuffy.
I love the simplicity of blinds, but like how I can replace the curtains, if I had to, without too much out of pocket. Plus, my tastes of today might not be the same down the road!
