You know how sometimes you think you have a plan all figured out and it will look fabulous. When I made my idea board I was so sure I wanted white drapes in the living room. Then when you start working on it, everything kind of falls apart and it really doesn't look like what you wanted.. That's the way my white drapes for the living room turned out. You can see all of the different looks I tried with them here. So on to game plan #2.
Here are the white drapes, now there is nothing wrong with them, it's just that they look so plain in here. No wow or pizzazzzz. Actually they really do look better in this picture than in real life. ( My sofa is more of a cream and this makes it almost look dirty) Ok, now to clarify, I love the lighter brighter look, just not the stark white, so I think I need to look for something more of an ivory color.
Ok, back to the living room - remember this is with the brown drapes that I have had for a while.
Right now, this is the only drape I have up in the familyroom. Just so-so.
I think I am just not a stark white girl, I can't get my arms around these at all. I need to figure out something else. Sorry Ikea, but these are going back. I just don't think they are me. Love the all white in others homes, but hate it in mine. Have to be true to myself. I do have a super idea and it will be fabulous, hopefully. I will show you later.
