Not to harp on our living room, sad little guy, but it feels lack luster and boring. Almost completely devoid of color with the exception of plants and a few pillows. I usually prefer a touch more color. In addition to framing out the recently replaced windows and adding a new rug (any suggestions?), curtains are on my list. The dropcloth panels are fine, nothing amazing, but get the job done. All the gray on gray is getting dreary.
To shake things up, I’ve placed an order for green curtains. Before pulling the trigger, I photoshopped some color over the current set. Perhaps an olive toned set? I know where I can get a similar linen.
Deeper, almost emerald could look nice?
Or cheery kelly green…
Then I saw these green velvet panels at World Market.
At $35 per panel, they’re cheaper than I could make. Sign me up for skipping sewing large panels! Seriously, I loathe sewing curtains. Cumbersome pain in the butt they are.
Online, the color didn’t get me too excited. So, I stopped in our store to take a look and walked out with six 84″ panels. Including the floor model. Cleared them out. At home, I tossed one over the rod to get a better peek.
Other than the panels being a few inches short, I’m diggin’ it.
I’d say the color is less deep green than the description and more leafy green. Very similar to my fiddle leaf fig, actually.
I’ve already placed an order for eight 96 inch panels (need four to cover the front window) and have returned the original six. Hopefully they’ll arrive in a few weeks and we’ll have a happy new look. Just in time to offset the winter blues.
