      Oh pom pom trim! Hmm wonder what’s wrong with the link. I know that’s the correct URL. I’ve ordered from them in the past. I will try and find an email address and see whats up.

    Great idea if your panels are not visible from the outside but I must say I prefer a clean white look from the street…also some home communities require a neutral backing on all the windows.

    how fun to come across my work on your blog! πŸ™‚ actually, the lining is felt which is nice and heavy. most of the room is neutral with some pops of navy and orange. i didn’t want to go too overkill on the orange so i like it slightly hidden in the lining (although the way the drape hangs, you get a good peek at it). there are 2 sets of these drapes on either side of a pair of french doors that lead out to the back patio. when you’re sitting on the couch on the patio, facing the fireplace (and back of house), you get to see that happy orange smiling back at you. πŸ™‚

    additionally, the 4 drape panels required 25 yards of fabric (and 25 yards of lining) and 16 yards of trim. drape fabric was osborne & little and bead trim was samuel & sons…all together pretty pricey! believe it or not, i found the orange felt at joanne’s fabric for about $4/yd. i was thrilled with the find and totally happy with the quality!

    i know what you mean re: why haven’t you done this before…i don’t think i can go back to white lining now. πŸ˜‰

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
