Curtain Call

Style :

You know what the old downside is to having a new fabulously pretty space (i.e. #PKG)? Turns out it shines a glaring light on the little imperfections in the rest of house...I woke up a few days ago thinking that there are certain things about my home that now, apres kitchen gorgeous, look like a monkey's armpit.
For one, the kitchen is tres sparkly...I can't show you this now but you can imagine...tons of reflective marble combined with 3 chandeliers and brand new pot lights means light...lots of light...and PS, it's glamorous light...my living room on the other hand, in a weird twist of design fate, is looking kind of dull...it needs a little sparkle of its own...don't get me wrong, I still love it and nothing at all major is going to happen in there...it just needs a few small sparkle tweaks.

And the big one is going to involve this area....


You see those curtains...well they kind of hold a little DIY dirty secret...when I bought them a few years back I had no effing idea how to plaster them up there...I didn't know Meredith back then you see...custom curtain rods...had no idea how/where to go about that and because it's a 25 foot or so span of windows, there was no finding a store bought rod...so...cover your eyes if you're squeemish...I did the only thing a girl in my position could do...this...


I bought some u-hooks and cut down wood dowel and managed to get them up...sort of...yes they hang there and they skim the floor nicely BUT ideally, and in a pretty/good world, they'd go to the ceiling and I'd have a rod that spanned the whole wall.

Well boys and girls, I believe in thinking positively (most of the time) and I want a damn rod...a pretty one.

It could be brass...




or white or chrome/nickel...


{and PS on the above, those kelly green curtains make me weak...divine}

or black...





{that dining room on the right is one of my favourite spaces EVER!!}

or...best of all perhaps...it could be LUCITE!!!


Hello yumminess from The Paris Apartment...don't you just adore everything from there?

And then there's this recent heavenly discovery....


Gretchen Everett Hardware....I heart you in a laaaarge way.

What do you think would be the best choice pour moi?
And just to help you narrow it down, I won't be choosing white, black or chrome...so that leaves you two to pick from:)

Happy Monday beauties.
