|color texture pattern: curtains for any season|
On a whim, I decided to put up a wool panel along with it. Love it!:
It seemed like a homerun. 'Til the tension rod fell down. Oy! I think I must have yanked on them when I pushed the bed back and put the pillows on it. Had to get the ladder again and climb back up... It occurred to me to try a few other combos while I had the ladder out:
Why not berry for Autumn? I've had these IKEA drapes folded away for a few years. They discontinued the shade, but not before I managed to get four 118-inch panels (to frame the bay windows)! The shimmer is delicious...
And then I tried some IKEA sheers in the same color. Don't like the way the tab back and rod pocket lay together:
So, then I tried the wool and the faux-silk together. Interesting textural mix: matte + shimmer:
I've decided to leave this for the time being. See how it feels walking into the room for a few days. The first, with the amethyst panel, makes me the most comfortable, but it feels like berry is a better choice for right now. Amethyst can wait till full winter.
