Pink & Turquoise Home Office Curtains

Creative Office Space Window TreatmentsYou know that feeling you have when you put a new outfit together that you’re really going to love it? You know it’s destined to become one of your favorites?

That’s the feeling I had when we picked out these fabrics. I knew I was going to love these curtains. And I was right! 🙂

Cafe Curtain with Crinkle Cuff and Beaded Trim (3)

Tara and I met at the fabric store to talk about the curtains for her home office. We knew turquoise was a must but we were wavering between colors like pink, orange, yellow and lime green to add to the mix.

Tara has an accent wall behind her desk painted turquoise as well as a quatrefoil area rug that gave us our turquoise beginning.

When we pulled these fabrics together we knew we were headed in the right direction.

A pink and pale oatmeal floral cotton with a linen-like weave, a citrene yellow crinkle, an aqua and green quatrefoil (which is actually the wrong side of the fabric) a bright turquoise beaded tassel trim and a fuchsia gimp.

Before Windows for Home Office

Here’s a before shot of the two windows in Tara’s office during construction.
The narrower arched window faces the front of the house while the wider more traditional rectangle window faces the side.

We decided to dress the two window with entirely different window treatments but using similar colors in our fabrics. I love it when clients are willing to take a chance and think outside the box! It’s so much fun!

 Here’s another look at our before…


Tara’s been working on vacation pics.
Isn’t this sweet? I couldn’t resist taking a pic of her pics. 🙂

Creative Office Space Cafe Curtain

On this window we decided to make a cafe curtain complete with absolutely adorable gathered cuff. 

Cafe Curtain with Crinkle Cuff and Beaded Trim

I made the crinkle cuff a bit differently than I normally do by gathering it and leaving a cute little ruffled header above the curtain. The turquoise trim serves a dual purpose by adding another level of cuteness as well as hiding the stitching where the cuff was attached.

The cafe curtains are lined with a napped ivory lining but I included a band of turquoise along the upper back side.  Adding one more level to the cuteness factor.

The curtains are inside mounted on a thick, twisted black iron rod. The rings were sewn on.

One more peek.

Creative Office Space Window Treatments

For the arched window we made a completely different window treatment which we mounted with drapery tiebacks.

Pink Painted Fleur de Lis and Medallions

Tara customized these (originally black iron) tiebacks from Hobby Lobby by painting them pink and dry-brushing with ivory.

Installing Curtain Hardware

The tiebacks were evenly spaced and installed half way between the crown molding and the trim of the window following the arch.

The far left and right tiebacks were place just to the outside of the window trim.

Installing hooks

Once the tieback base is screwed to the wall, the curtain was hung from the attached loops and the pink fluer-de-lis were screwed in place.

Tara chose to use a different design for the actual tieback but painted the same pink.

Ruffle and Trim Detail on Office Curtains

While we used the aqua and green quatrefoil for the body of the curtain, the lower portion sported a lovely crinkle skirt, floral ruffle and trim.

A.dor.a.ble! I’m so very tickled with how these turned out!

This is a perfect example of how you can use two entirely different curtains in the same space with amazing results.
Sure, we could have easily treated both windows the same but the room wouldn’t have near the impact it does.

Shell Memories

Would you feel comfortable living in a space with two entirely different curtains such as these? Or do you prefer a more symmetrical approach?

I’d love to hear YOUR thoughts!

All fabrics and trims were purchased at Fabrics Unlimited in OKC.

  10. I hope that you have the words “Window Treatment Artist” on your business card. You have outdone yourself again!

  11. You are so talented. Yes I would use different curtains in the same room. My house needs some serious attention now but I’m getting old and it’s hard to paint. I love to sew and maybe new curtains will inspire me to do more.

    Thanks for sharing you ideas. Love the way you decorate.

    Have a great day!
