Builder’s don’t think about curtains.
It’s my job to think about curtains and I’ve come to the conclusion that Builders don’t think about curtains. Ever. Are you surprised?
Have you ever lived in a home with arched windows in a bedroom? A bedroom facing East, South or West?
Have you ever had windows built so close to the fireplace that they must have been part the fireplace design?
Or maybe you have a kitchen window reminiscent of the one above?
Then I imagine you agree with me.
But I digress.
This post isn’t about Builders it about these adorable, simply elegant, curtains!
If you’ve perused The Gallery here at Beyond the Screen Door then neither this style of curtain or this fabric is new to you.
You’ve seen it with a contrasting cuff and tie tops in a vine pattern.
And of course with velvet, one of my all time favorites, showing another pattern.
We used the same fabric for floor length panels with a self cuff in Jan’s Master Bedroom.
Jan had these curtains made for her Master Bathroom with the wrong side out. Actually it’s debatable which side of this fabric is actually the right side. I’ve seen this side labeled as the right side and have made curtains using both sides as the right side.
Gorgeous either way you look at it!
Here Jan used the same fabric and style in her living room.
When it came time to consider fabrics for this little window I relied on this old favorite.
As you can see, our options were limited by the placement of the window, the cabinets and the crown molding.
This little cafe curtain was the perfect solution. The curtain was made with a 6″ self cuff and hemmed to hit the bottom of the apron (lowest portion of the wood trim around the window). The hardware is an inexpensive Target curtain rod with clip rings bought separately.
