Before + After: Living Room

I have been so anxious to get some window coverings in our living room to warm up the space
and to give added privacy!
I found fabric at Home Fabrics for $5/yd!
I was hoping that you wouldn't be able to tell the fabric was so cheap if I got them made nicely.
I found a great seamstress for a good price and had her sew long drapes with a french pleat.
I am really happy with how it turned out! I feel like it adds a lot of warmth to the room,
even though they are white on white.

Your living room looks beautiful! I think white curtains are so fresh and clean looking, especially with a white wall. And they look luxurious, not economical at all - I love a good buy!

They look so good!! So fresh! Just love the whole room! So I was actually wondering who you used to sew your drapes. I recently bought fabric to make new drapes in my family room, and don't know of a reasonably priced seamstress. If you wouldnt mind telling me info and how much she/he charged? Thanks so much!

Hello there,

I was just wondering what color paint did you use in your living room?

nicole me oh my! said...

Hello! Thanks for all your kind words!

The paint color if Swiss Coffee from Dunn Edwards.

The rug is from Anthropologie four years ago, but I think they still have it.
