Living Room Drapes

Ah, I’m so happy to have FINALLY decided on fabric for my living room/breakfast room drapes!  It’s only been about three months that I’ve been eyeing my naked windows with contempt.  And unlike before, this time, I’m hiring a friend to sew them for me!  Here’s the sample fabric:

The drapes will go on the far ends of the living room windows too.  It will be so nice to have the added visual interest and something to draw the eye up (still need to raise the mirrors!) p.s. I can’t believe I got a shot out the window without just a bunch of glare- I played around with the manual settings on my camera but have no idea how I stumbled into the settings.  Centsational Girl recently did an awesome tutorial.

I was even able to get a shot of the view from inside our doors.

Okay, I digress, but back to the fabric- look at all these little free samples I collected at High Fashion Home.

I can’t wait to show y’all the finished result!

  1. Ooooh ...I like it! Drapes are a big decision, especially in the main room of the house! I've been looking at an Ikat pattern for our family room but I'm having commitment issues. :)

  7. That looks very similar to something I was eyeing in JoAnn fabric for my kitchen. I love the color and the simple geometric lines. I want to go a bit more modern. Love it!

  10. Gorgeous fabric! I'm picking out grey and white patterns for my bedroom right now, what is the name of that pattern? I always come home with a handful of swatches and then wish I'd written the name/price down on them for later use.

  19. Just found your blog and I love your decorating style! I'm loving some of those other fabric patterns, specicially the chevron-looking one. Do you happen to have the names of some of the swatches, that you'd be willing to share??? I've been on an endless fabric hunt...

  21. Ohh, nice choice! I love the pattern.. striking enough to be a focus, yet neutral enough if you want to change out pops of color. Love it!

  22. Feels so lucky to have stumbled upon your blog and now am checking in often!

    I can appreciate how pretty all those fabrics look so I am sure the decision was tough. But I think you picked perfectly - that one trendy and peaceful at the same time. I am loving how all the room in you house are their own themes but still go really well together. So pretty looking at your photos on a gray winter day in Chicago! ♥

  25. Love the fabric choice!! Can't wait to see it all come together. Even though I can sew and paint, I am sooo all about farming that out to others right now. I have a wonderful Asian woman who does an AMAZING job, so why not let her tackle the upholstery/sewing!! And, I LOVE my painters...a little too much according to my sweet hubby!! LOL
