What kind of curtains/window treatments?
November 30, 2012 in Design Dilemma
As you can see we have been doing lots of construction. We've knock out a couple of walls and gutted the fireplace. I recently painted all the window trim white and the windows black. We still need to add the baseboards, stain the floors dark, paint the walls, and tile the fireplace. I have attached the tile we are going to use. I was thinking grey walls but havent picked the shade yet. Also I was thinking a patterned grey/white curtain? Do you have any ideas? I have attached one that I was thinking about getting. Also, do all the windows and doors have the same curtain? I have the three windows across from the fireplace(as shown) and then one window to the left of the fireplace and then one window and door to the right (as shown). I also attached the tile we are using for the fireplace.

Can you post pictures of more of the room? Or of all three windows in the room.

Hi kelcha! Very exciting, all the construction!

I love the curtains you have pictured. Where did you find them?

I don't think the curtains on all windows need to match thought it does make the decorating easier. Don't think you need curtains over the doors - maybe just a shade over the glass if you need privacy.

Do you already have furniture or do you still need to pick. Probably easier to do that b/f deciding on the curtains.

Here is article about using grey in the home & some pictures of living rooms w/grey walls, grey fireplace:

Hope this helps a little! Have a great night.

I dont know if this helps? Its hard to show all the windows in one shot (because they are across from each other)..... I haven't picked out furniture yet & I know its sorta of backwards picking curtains first)... But I need to put something up so we dont feel like neighbors are watching us :)

Actually that pic does help - I didn't realize they were 2 separate rooms. In that case, it will be easier to use difft curtains.

I wouldn't rush to buy the final curtains -- you can get some temporary paper shades or some cheap curtains while you're finishing construction. You can get the paper shades at Lowe's or Home Depot & the cheap curtains at Wal-Mart or Big Lots/Christmas Tree Shop or some store like that.

Or take a look at some of the ideas for inexpensive window coverings from one of my favorite designers/bloggers: http://www.lynneknowlton.com/10-ahhh-mazingly-simple-decorating-ideas/

You have a really lovely space. I'm excited to follow your transformation & hopefully be a little helpful along the way.

Is the room w/the 3 windows going to be a dining room or a living/family room?

Thanks for your help! I was trying to make it feel like one big room, because our tv will be above the fireplace.... oh and I forgot to answer your first posts question- Those are from Zgallerie.

Hi kelcha! Sorry I left you alone for 2 days. :) Busy weekend.

So the space will be all living-room-type space. Okay, have to think.....I'll be back!

In the meantime, you might also want to take a look at this thread - http://www.houzz.com/discussions/255388/Need-help-with-room-layout-for-two-adjoining ---similar dilemma.
