Floor Length Chenille Curtains with Houndstooth Lining

Living Room

Tara’s Family Room.

So far we’ve seen the Dining Room, Kitchen, Kitchen Window TreatmentsMaster BedroomMaster Closet, Pool Bath, Guest Bedroom, Another Guest Bedroom, Home Office in Tara’s gorgeous home.

Today I’m sharing the family room. Alongside the Kitchen, this room is literally the center of the home.

Living Room - before


In this before shot, taken from behind the huge kitchen island you see in the foreground, is the large span of windows which will eventually open up to the back patio.

This wall of windows measures approximately 12 feet wide.

While contemplating the window treatments, we knew we didn’t need functioning panels for either privacy or light control so we chose to hang “dead panels” purely for looks and impact.

Tara went with custom iron hardware through the house. We chose to use 3′ rods with bold finials to hang 100″ wide pleated panels flanking the doors.

From Living Room to Kitchen

Because these window treatments would also be seen from the back patio I suggested we line them with something fun that would look great from outside as well.

The family room and kitchen are open to each other. Here you can see how the breakfast room adjoins the family room.

This black and ivory houndstooth was the perfect compliment to the red chenille damask.

We also banded the lead edge of each panel with 3.5″ of the houndstooth…

And hung to the panels to “break” on the floor.

    I had a similar look in home we bought in 1976…….the people went with black/reds for what I called a Spanish influence. As I recall, I replaced them with Belgian lace and brass hardware! BTW, it is bitterly cold here in Minnesota! Back door to the deck was frozen shut with snowdrift nearly to the top of it. Finally got it shoveled out and can feed the birds who come to my feeder every day. Cheap entertainment!
