Draperies


My familiy room has had the ivory drapes and green cornices shown on the left window in this picture for 19 years. I like them; they just aren't green enough (maybe because they're IVORY, dummy?). So when I saw floral drapes in the Penney's catalog, I decided to order them and hang both pair together. Now, I can't decide if I like the new window treatment well enough to finish the other 3 windows. I'd really like hunter green drapes to go with the floral, but I haven't seen anything in hunter green in I don't know how long.. Maybe I should take down the hard cornice and make swags and jabots from the new drapes, lined in hunter green chintz? I hope staring at this picture will help more than staring at the stinkin' window!

Well if what you really want is something else, even if you like it, they will never be what you want!

My thought is that I would switch the floral and the ivory so more of the floral shows up giving you more of the color you're looking for - maybe?

Oh, and thanks for stopping by and the recent comments. g
