The guest room is coming along, and as you saw yesterday, I even cleaned out the closet! But the room needs drapes! I originally bought plain, white cotton panels, but they looked too boring, especially against our very pale gray walls (and I’m not in the mood to paint right now). I couldn’t find ready-made drapes that I was in love with, so I figured I’d make my own- or have my seamstress sew them! We’ll see, I’ve done both before. (I made the curtains in my office and it was such a chore working with all that fabric for a beginning sewer, but I had my seamstress sew our living room and dining room drapes).
I was browsing Spoonflower for fabric online and found several in the aqua color I was looking for. It’s hard when you’re looking at fabric online because obviously, if you haven’t seen it in person before, you don’t know how true the color is, how the repeat will look etc.
My duvet cover is an orange and white geometric pattern from WalMart, but I also have an orange and white Greek Key duvet cover from Z Gallerie that would work in the room.
The first one is what I’m thinking of for drapes. I like that it’s aqua with a bit of a pattern that looks like texture. I won’t really know until I see it in person if it looks like how I picture it.
