The Great Curtain Debate

So, you may remember that sorting out window treatments in our master bedroom was high on my wish list. You see, we have 4 windows in our room and only two have treatments. 
Hmm...interesting, Liz, interesting.

{see, check out the window on the far right - nothing but a shade! Oh, you never noticed - that's odd. So unlike me to have never pointed it out...}

Why, yes, it is. A little back story of how this came to be...Back in the day, almost 3 years ago now, when we first worked on our bedroom I didn't know how to handle two of our windows. One was over a dressing table and the other was over a radiator, both next to built-in cupboards. No where to hang a panel...so, I did what any fear-frozen girl would do and decided to deal with it later.

{now}

As you may expect, now is later and here's my new problem. Restoration Hardware has discontinued this color way. Why, I ask you, why? What is wrong with yellow, people? It's constantly on the outs, but I continue to love it. Perseverance. 

Anyway, this little discovery left me in a tail spin trying to figure out what to do. Of course, I looked to match the existing fabric, but to no avail. So far nothing. 


Back to the drawing board...ie, Pinterest. Which is where I came across the idea of using one panel per window, essentially framing the windows on either side of the bed. 


So, I'm giving it a try to see how I like it. Me, being the self described Queen of Coziness, thinks it looks a bit bare. But I am starting to get used to it. I'd love to know what you think.

Please ignore: the wrinkled curtains {I also added curtain rings instead of using the rod pocket, as before}, the new hole in the plaster wall where I hung the painting too high, and the hideous, now exposed curtain rods. This is an 'in progress' image, after all. 

{I'm also testing out a slightly new location for the loveseat}

What's the point of all this? Well, if I decide I can live with one panel per window, that frees up the other two existing panels, which could be used to cover the remaining windows. 


As I explained to Mr. DD, buying two new curtain rods is a lot more cost effective then all new window panels. 

So, do tell. What do you think?


until next time,
