Curtain question for diningroom
January 6, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I love the color of the dining room -gray/blue on top and ivory on bottom. I would like to put a window treatment in (other than the pink cell shades that came with the house!). I have purchased ivory Dupioni silk drapes from pottery barn for the bay window, but my questions are: (1) is the plain ivory too plain? (2) how can I get them to hang lower? If I hang the rod directly over the transom, and use curtain rings, I gain about 1 1/2 inch in lengh, but the curtains are still about 1 1/2 inch from the floor. (3). Should I hang the curtains between the actual window and the transom, or does that look funny? (4). Does anyone have suggestions for bay window curtain rods?
