My little brain is rather preoccupied with household things these days. Not much room in there for deep thinking right now. So...about the curtains. I have never had a home without curtains in every window. They speak warmth and coziness to me. I had fully intended to get lovely new curtains at some point. I even sent away for catalogs with beautiful country curtains and sheer elegant panels for the bay window.
However, when I looked closely at the beautiful cornice work over every window I began to have second thoughts. Should I really cover them up?
Not being gifted in the home decorating arena, I decided I'd better ask the advice of some trusted friends.
So trusted friends. What do you think? Curtains or no curtains? I am open to any and all suggestions.
All of the windows look like this: the kitchen
one of the living room windows
The bay window in the bedroom
a close-up of the cornice (is that the correct term?)
Thank you so much. I feel just a bit silly, but really - I just need help.
