So before I go into my recent adventures to Chicago, Atlanta, and in bed with the flu- let's talk about what's really important: indecent exposure.
Apparently the entire neighborhood has been watching me for months now because I have YET to pick out drapery fabric for practically my entire house. And I have refused to put up the old dusty plastic blinds that lived there before we repainted everything.
Throughout the house (aside from a few rooms) I painted the walls and trim Benjamin Moore "China White" and the french doors Sherwin Williams "Black Fox".
Hoyt keeps making fun of me when I'm looking at fabrics in my house (which is NEVER in case you were wondering- unless it's at 10pm crouching around a lamp). He says "Oh- Oh!! Let me guess... WHITE?!"
But it's true- so far I've painted everything a shade of white and only brings things in with little to no color. I can't tell if it's just that I see samples all day long and I want a blank slate to come home to, or if I am a wimp and won't commit to anything other than white. Maybe it's a little of both but we're not here to analyze that. We are here to make a decision. I need to figure out what to do with our window treatments before the neighbors see me in my underwear.(again)
The problem is- I like a lot of different things. I make decisions all day long for my clients but when it comes to my house I freeze. Then quickly put it on the backburner.
What I DO know is that I keep coming back to some of my favorite rooms with simple, light curtains that closely resemble the wall. --- I apologize for any repeats--
They are sophisticated, soothing, and simple.
Are they safe???......YES. -But I'm okay with that. :)
I was coming to look for some approval from you guys but ended up with Leo's blessing. I guess he trumps all. ??
Either way- I'm ordering some fabric!
