Today I need some advice.
I have a large living room window that could use some help.
Right now, there is a custom relaxed Roman shade covering it (see FOR SALE items!).
But I think some light, long puddling curtains might add a bit more drama to the space. So I bought some inexpensive linen-blend curtains from West Elm.
Once again, I was hoodwinked. I always think I have the best idea and then when I start to execute, I realize I have champagne taste on a beer budget. They just look awfully plain compared to my custom shade.
So two questions.
Do you like them hung from the ceiling or from the wall?
To make them look less out-of-a-box and more custom, I thought I might add some trim.
#2 - Is Greek key trim overdone?
Alternatively, I thought about doing a velvet trim in a pattern like this. The the question there would be - what color velvet? I ordered some samples and am leaning towards a beige. Loving the camel, gray and white and celadon theme we've got going. But I'm tempted to be a rebel and add rust velvet.
