New Curtains

Tuesday, 11 February 2014

So at last we have our new curtains up - our made to measure curtains for our bay window for the house we've just sold! Ah well, such is life, I'm sure they'll find a new home in the next house, wherever that might be!

What do you think? I love the big pattern, and the bold pop of colour against the grey walls and our wooden chest of drawers. I'm so pleased with how they've turned out.  (I'm shockingly bad with a camera unfortunately and the afternoon light was doing me no favours, so excuse the photos!)

I'm not entirely sure the curtains sit all that well against my recently reupholstered chair, and I may move the chair to our bedroom in time, but I also kind of sign up to the school of thought that if your home is full of pieces you genuinely love, they'll sit together and work together somehow - that's what makes your style individual right!?

Also, on the top photo you can just see the collection of framed photos and prints I have behind the sofa - I have generally created a kids art corner in the kitchen where all their bits of art, etc are put up, but this self-portrait Tabitha did of herself was so cute that I said we could frame it and put it up on the wall. She was so excited, it was really sweet. Here's a couple of photos she took of it herself, she was really proud! 


  1. I love your blog

  2. Oh love the curtain pattern! That looks fab. And you are right, if you love a piece, it will fit with your other things. x

  4. Wow! I love your new curtains! Choosing an oriental pattern is a classic way to make a room look cozy and playful. I also love how the reds pop out with all the black lines. You did a gerat job on choosing that, Laura! Thanks for sharing! Kudos and all the best to you! :)
