The Great Drape Switch-Up

You know how a room is never done?
Well, that was the case with our home office. We finished it almost exactly a year ago, but it never felt "done" to me. It was lacking something that I couldn't quite put my finger on. Then the drapes arrived that I ordered for our family room, and I had an "ah ha" moment. They belong in the office, not the family room!
Sure enough, they provide some much needed pattern that the room was previously lacking.



Seems Harry and Georgia agree!

Giulia said...

Those are great. Did you just have the blinds before?

DecorandtheDog said...

The dogs are totally onto something here. I love those curtains. Talk me into not being cheap so I can buy them for my office.

Anne said...

Gorgeous! I love that pattern.

PERFECT! I love those moments when something for one room ends up in another. I like to think this means the whole house is working as one.

Maury said...

They look amazing! Adds just the right amount of interest to the walls. So the big question is... what's going in the family room now?

Those drapes are deeeee-vine! Look great in the room. I lost my precious shih-tzu last year, and seeing Harry and Georgia made me smile. Thanks. :)

What a great looking office. I love the combo of the striped rug with the pattern in the curtain. I never would have thought of doing that.

Those ARE really nice. And I like how the space is so open, yet not bare. Window treatments make me insane; they're so absolutely crucial, such a pain to find, and so ridiculously expensive. You've done a really nice job here.

Very good call - and it leaves the door for more curtain shopping. Smart girl!
