Room with a View: Curtains

Whether you are,

Gazing out the window.

Reading a magazine.

Enjoying a book.

Staring out over at the ocean.

Waking up to the sunrise.


Looking for the hummingbirds

nestled in the palm fronds.

Watching the sunset,

A sheer pair of curtains goes a long way. I love the view from our bedroom in Los Angeles because we have lush green banana trees that give me the feeling we might very well be living in Hawaii.

Light weight curtains paired with blinds even the ugly ones that came with our apartment do just the trick.

I’m also digging these Hippie Chick, tie-dye curtains by CottageHomeCouture.

I just read the best article on dip-dying fabric in Living magazine and I’m itching to give this technique a try. Here you see the¬†two tone turquoise color panels. I also think bright white dipped in indigo looks really fresh!

My favorite curtain inspiration is below. I love anything monochromatic or playing with hue. This photo from Domino magazine was taken from a Prada inspired palette.

Room Details: Curtains and Bedding

For those of you that are following these rooms as they evolve, we have added the curtains! I love the details of both of these sets.

The white sheers are from West Elm and have gorgeous capiz shells along the trim. Above the bed is a custom linen curtain, we had sewn from vintage table linens.

These sunny pillows and coconut shell lamp are sure to cheer a girl up, even on school days!

We will be layering in another pillow later this week. Inside Mia’s room, the Circles curtains add the element of pattern and ties in the mirrored table with other silver and white objects in the space.

All the little details, including the curtain rod and rings are something to think about.

Later, today while I am on site, I’ll try to capture more of these nuances! Hope you are enjoying watching it all come together.
