October 31st is Halloween, my boyfriend's birthday, and the 17th month in our new house. Before we moved in, I had a long list of things I wanted to do before we hit the first year mark like replacing all of the builder's light fixtures, finding curtains and rugs for every room, and buying some new furniture. Let's just say I pretty much failed haha
Why am I telling you all of this? Well, we're finally going to be adding curtains to all of the windows on our first floor! It's happening 5 months after my target goal but better late than never, right?
Please ignore the sad state of our living room!
We picked up some plain white curtains the last time we were at IKEA and are planning to hang them from DIY pipe curtain rods like we did in our office.
Eventually I'd love to buy some colored or patterned curtain panels to add to the outside of the white ones for a color-blocked look:
These gorgeous green velvet ones would be perfect for fall and would transition nicely into Christmas:
I really like these brightly colored floral ones as well!
They'd look great hung as a room divider in a small apartment or behind a wall as a pseudo headboard. The panels are on sale right now and I'm seriously contemplating buying one to cut up and make some pillows or napkins out of!
After we add the curtains, I plan on investing in some rugs. To me, rugs and curtains are the two finishing touches that really cozy up a room and make it feel finished. We have tile throughout our entire first floor and a cushy rug in our living room would feel very nice underfoot!
I could bury my face (and feet) into this rug:
The pattern is great (very Beni Ourain!) and it's made of 100% wool. It looks ultra-plush, like a fluffy cloud that my toes would love!
I like this rug's pattern but...
It's a flat-weave rug and I worry that it might be scratchy like my Nate Berkus dhurrie rug shown below.
By the way, does anyone pay attention to what their rugs are made of? I never do but apparently there's a method to picking a rug based on the area/room it's going to be in! Mind. Blown.
Do you need any curtains or rugs? If so, you're in luck! If not, maybe you need other things ;)
