Where are the Gray Silk Curtains?


Just a short post today, to finally reveal where the gray silk curtains have ended up (drum roll) - the dining room!


As soon as I hung them I knew I had found the perfect place.


The gray color complimented the blue and white of the rug and the silk was right at home in this slightly formal space. It truly was love at first sight!

In all honesty, I have been delaying this reveal because some of you had left such nice comments about the yellow checked curtains that I felt a little guilty taking them down.


Truth be told, the yellow checked curtains were one of my very first attempts at sewing panels – over 10 years ago - and the lining was not done correctly. (Not that you could really ever tell.)


So the gray curtains will stay in the dining room and I am now left with making eight more panels for the living room. What will I choose this time? I will let you know soon!

The gray panels look fabulous! The yellow was pretty, too, but everyone needs a change every now and then. I'm sure that you were the only person who knew that the lining on your yellow curtains wasn't perfect. They look very professional to me!

Your drapes look elegant and gorgeous and fantastic against your creamy walls. Will that shade of grey pop up anywhere else now in the room???

Love the gray in the dining room!
They give it a much more updated look---so stylish---so chic. Gray is such a popular color right now, yet it is classic. I can't wait to see what's up for living room now!

The grey adds elegance. The yellow were fine, but more traditional and tended to fade back into the wall. The gray pops out - I like it! Your house is so beautiful, too! I have such a long way to go... ;)
