Colour makes the world go round...


This was the little sneaky instagram peek of my new curtains that I blogged on Sunday...


A long long time ago now, I blogged about this beautiful Tahiti Fabric (the selvedge says 100% cotton - Tahiti Print) and it's been sitting in the stash ever since.

Sorry for the photo quality (was trying to keep house dark and cool)

There was metres and metres of it.... enough to make brand new curtains for my very tall living room windows.


I'm absolutely amazed at how taking down the boring brown curtains and replacing them with these has made such a difference.

I'm not amazed, that once again, I've taken multiple pairs of shoes off as I've sat on the couch and left them to pile up, and therefore end up in my photos.... some things never change.


Now if I could just work out a way to magically extend the side walls so that I centre the television....

Hahah, I do the exact same thing with my shoes! The curtains look fantastic. Anything sounds better than brown curtains but they are especially lovely. I have wooden blinds on all the windows at my place and while they are great, sometimes I wish for a curtain somewhere. Although, then that would mean I would need to find some motivation to make one so probably a good thing the blinds were here already when we moved in!

You might need the mighty terylene curtains behind them to ensure that the cotton isn't damaged and faded by the sun.

bring a lot of colour to the room? why can't you just centre the tv?
