The Curtains are Done! The Curtains are Hung!





I'm loving this fabric combination.
I bought the fabric two weeks ago
and already the window treatments are
sewn and hanging.
Whew!
I've been boring everyone I know about
wanting to make this change for more than a year!
Two other fabrics were purchased last year,
but I decided they were not "right."
So, it's actually been a long time coming.
The treatments are ultra simple,
so the sewing did not take
a huge amount of time.


My entry, living room and dining room
all flow together,
so I needed the same fabrics for all
three areas.
This is the window seat in the dining room.


This double window is in the entry beside the front door,
to the right...


...If you turn to the left you see the living room,
and a bit of the dining room.
(See those two square windows on either
side of the fireplace?
That's another long term project.
I hope to find, or have made
stained glass panels for them.)


I don't need the bottom cafes in the living room
because I have roll up wooden shades there.
These windows over look the porch and the street out front
and the roll ups are usually open during the day.


This is the view from the living room into the dining room.


The dining room again.


And finally a view back to the entry from the living room.
I'm delighted with the freshness this change brought.
I also went through and did a bit of decluttering.
I have so much stuff I really like,
but I have to remind myself,
I simply cannot have it all out at the same time!
Can you see why I needed the same fabrics
for all three spaces in my little cottage?

SUSAN!!!!! Those are gorgeous! You did a wonderful job and I can see why you needed to tie them all together. They are just perfect in your home and I LOVE how bright and cheery they are.

I need to do a bit of decluttering, too and put some stuff away for a while- xo Diana
