Brown not Boring Dining Room Window Treatments

Who says brown is boring?

When it comes to colors for her home, Linda is drawn to brown. Browns, tans, beige…basically any shade in the brown family.

When we set out to find fabric for new dining room window treatments she naturally gravitated to the browns. Brown but definitely not boring. The luscious brown damask she chose is absolutely gorgeous and has a beautiful drape perfect for window treatments.

We all know in the blogging community the #1 rule is NO FLASH.

I get it.

I understand it.

I strive to achieve it.

It’s easier said than done.

When photographing windows this is often the result.

That’s why here on Beyond the Screen Door you get to see details.

Up close shots of the fabrics and trims in all their beauty.

Leaving a little bit to the imagination.

Between us…we’ll just pretend this is all done on purpose. :)


2013! I love the freshness a brand new year brings. A time for lists, for looking forward, for goals, for organizing, anticipation and expectations!

Have you set any big goals for 2013? Are you like me and have more goals and ideas and projects in mind than you will ever have the time to accomplish?  Maybe I won’t accomplish them all but that’s okay. I’m looking forward to trying.
