What a Difference Drapes Make


The corner window in Snubnose’s room has always been problematic. It was large and let in a lot of light, but there was zero privacy.

It was also hard to get ready made drapes to fit the size and after a lot of hemming and hawing, we decided to get our curtains stitched to suit the window.

As you can see, we badly needed drapes for privacy and to curtain off the harsh light from the setting sun.

The pinkish-gold hue is lovely and perfectly suits the room. At first I was hesitant thinking it would make the room look too pink as even the walls are pink. However we went with a sophisticated print (not apparent from this picture) and I think we have nicely avoided the nauseatingly baby-doll effect that pink usually has.

    The drapes really helped you with the lighting in the room. We had the same issue in our home. There was a nasty glare on the TV from the sun. We stuck a blanket up there at first to block off the light until we could find the right drapes. They have made all the difference in the room. http://www.windowtreatmentlosangeles.com/custom-drapes.html

    Love the beautiful corner window. The curtains add a gentle flattering color, I think.

      @debnance:disqus yes, I wasn’t sure about going pink on pink at first, but it really looks nice.
