:: it's curtains for me

Wow, what a difference curtains can make.

I spent some time yesterday hanging curtains in my bedroom...

never mind that it's taken me nearly eight years to get to this point.

So, what'ya think?

Papa Wren loves them, says they make him feel like he's in a luxury hotel.

I think they're pretty too, but......they do make the room feel smaller,

or shall we just say a little more cozy and intimate.

It always takes me a little longer to warm up to change.

Are you that way?....or does change just roll off of you like water off a duck?


However, I definitely think they make the room feel more finished,

and I like that they make it feel more cozy too.

Oh, and I picked up a few new rugs as well,

just in time for the cooler weather....no cold tootsies 'round here.

I also simplified the bowling alley of pillows on my bed.

I'm loving how much easier it is to make the bed now.

I can sometimes get a little carried away with pillows {I do love em'}


I still have some things to do, but I'm getting there.

My mission right now is simplification....

 and I really need to purge more stuff.

I'll keep you posted on my progress.

{peace, love & hugs}

  4. Carrie, it looks great. Curtains take me forever also! Why is that? I have new curtains in my living room. Hard to decide what I wanted in there and color scheme. Now, it's done. Finally!
    I like the neutral color you picked. I would have done the same. What's your next project? Ha, Ha.
    Oh, super Halloween photo :)

  8. I think the curtains finish the room off beautifully! I love the fireplace!

  9. A big "yes" on the curtains! When we hung white curtains in our place, the room really came together. Your bedroom DOES look so luxurious! Good choice, girl :) I'm really enjoying seeing your home!
