As most of you know, we just made a move and I've lost my creative-ness in this chaos so I thought two brains is better than one!
We have this great little "nook" in the house that I am using as the dining area...
 The new home came with curtains and for a lack of a better word, they are BORING! 
They match the wall color but we need something to make it POP!
This is where I need your help,
What color should they be?
They have those plain white tension rods that NEED TO GO and plain tan color tab top curtains that are boring!


  1. I am always a fan of natural earthy tones,appeals to the eye. With the color of the table I think some shade of light moss green. And I like the shear type curtains, I feel they bring in the most sun light. If it were my house though I would probably have bright colors and prints right out of the 70s. ;)

  2. If it were me, I would paint the walls a dark tan color to make the curtains pop. A can of paint is cheaper than all new curtains anyway! :) And I would get black decorative curtain rods instead of the white. They would work well with the other black accents of the room.

  3. I like the black curtain rod idea. Maybe red curtains or sew big black stripes on the white curtains

  4. I have an idea: Get some fabric paint in a color that matches your rug(looks gray from the pict. or a black to compliment the table) and a cool geometric stencil and get to it...on the existing curtains. You will be amazed! And if you don't like it, at least it won't be so my bathroom!
