At our old house, I changed out drapes in many of the downstairs (or public) rooms with the seasons. I haven’t really done that since we moved into our new place, but this year I decided to change the drapes up in our living room.
The picture above is how it has looked since we moved in three years ago. I ordered these drapes from Ballard Designs.
From the living room at our old house, I have these what? plaid? black, white and tan/beige drapes (also from Ballard’s) that have been stored in the guest room closet until now. I thought the pattern would give the room a warmer feel for the colder months.
I took some pictures Tuesday night when I switched them out, just for a change from the glaring sunlight that usually hits this room when I take pictures.
Yesterday I took some daylight shots.
What do you think? As with most of the changes I make, after having lived with something for a long period of time, this will take me a little while to get used to. So the jury is still out. I do think, right off the bat, that I might prefer a buffalo check over this particular pattern.
But, I guess if I am going to wind up getting new curtains, I might just look for a black and white toile, which would be my number one choice at this point. We shall see!
Which would you choose if given the choice of the three? Plaid, buffalo check or toile? Or, should I just put the other ones back up?
I’ll give them two weeks and, after that, if I don’t care for it, I will put the others back up until I decide if I want to get new. I think that’s giving it a fair try!
