I have a secret, one I am not proud of… I have lived in my house for almost 6 years without any (not a single) curtain, drape or window valance. That’s right, my house is naked. I know that window treatments, along with rugs (which I also have very few of), make a huge difference in a home. They anchor a room and bring harmony to your design. The truth is, I have trouble committing. And on top of that, my budget has been a roadblock.
Window treatments don’t have to be expensive. In fact, one of my favorite designers, Emily Henderson wrote this great post here about the secrets to inexpensive, but good drapery. But, when it comes to curtains, I am looking for something to make a statement. I want full panels that drape from the ceiling to the floor, fun patterns and unique designs.
I am finally starting to prioritize drapery in my home, starting with my office and then dining room. I secured a great resource here in Dallas to have my drapes custom-made, but now I’m on the hunt for some well-priced fabric in a statement-making print. The images above a providing some great inspiration. But I’d like to know: A) Do you prefer simple, neutral drapes; or statement curtains? and B) Where do you buy your window treatments?
