Okay, back to the DV.
Some beautification went on recently, this time in my daughter's bedroom. When furnishing and decorating a room, I don't rush it. I tend to keep things forever so I wait for the right things to come along, preferring quality over quantity. I'm also on a budget, so I wait for sales. My home is a work in progress.
The curtains are a new addition to Astrid's bedroom. She had chosen this beautiful pale chartreuse silk jacquard fabric - a colour found in the pattern of her bed quilt. It was very thin so I bought a weighty taffeta to use as lining. The tarnished brass rods belonged to the house -found in a closet - but they had no matching supports, so I bought some wooden ones painted in a distressed gold. I also needed some rings for the rods, tassels for the ties, then I was ready to start sewing. I wanted to keep the style fresh and light, suitable for a girl's room so instead of a heavy curtain header, I sewed some beads at the top to match the wall colour and the rod colour.
The windows at the DV are quite tall, but narrow, so I thought doing one panel per window would look less fussy. Tying them to one side is in Astrid's style.
In this shot, you can see better the lace Romans behind the silk curtains. They used to hang in the parlor when we moved in, but now that the parlor is my studio, I thought they would be better suited for a pretty bedroom.
