I have been trying to figure out how to do the window treatments in my rooms. For 5 years. Seriously. I am indecisive. I get an idea, can't find the stuff and then get stumped. Get another idea, can't find the stuff and get stumped again. I go back and forth. I think I want it one way, then I see another idea from somewhere else. What is a girl to do? So, I have decided to go the
neutral route. Quite unlike me, but I figure when I find the perfect curtains the shades will match. Here are two ideas I found on this site: http://www.greatinteriordesign.com/tag/cottage-window-design/
I think I am leaning a bit more to the bamboo or matchstick blinds. I love the texture and it might save my house from looking like a McDonald's play area. What can I say? I love color. I want my house to be colorful and happy looking for my kids. Actually, if I could convince Kim over at http://www.deardaisycottage.typepad.com/ to trade houses with me, I wouldn't have to worry about it. Hers is perfect, but I lack the ability to look at things objectively and to know when to stop. I guess that is what makes my home mine. It may not be the best dressed, but I love it anyway. Kim recently made a post about not following "rules" of decorating, and I really took it to heart. If I want fake plants (my kids eat the real ones) then I can. I can paint anything any color I want. It's just paint. So, I will take her advice with my window treatments. I will pick which ever ones appeals most to me, "in style" or not. After all, if we don't call the shots in our own house, what's the point??
