These Are THE Curtains

The Library

They look better than my mockup (as I had a feeling they would). I haven’t been this pleased with a purchase in a long time! It took two and a half years, but I finally have curtains for the library that I love.

    Awww, baby Brandon is so cute— I teared up it reminded me so of my daughter when she was that age– loved her excersaucer too– time flies she’s now 13!!!! And yes she is definitely saying “mah-ma” :) OH, and yes I love those curtains too– like your style a lot.

    I am on the hunt for curtains for our new house (http://tearinguphouses.blogspot.com/2009/10/congratulations.html). These turned out lovely.

    p.s. I was born in Oak Park! Great neighborhood!

    Beautiful curtains – they really make the room!! Stunning!

    I am considering them for my bedroom and was wondering how much light comes through? Are they opaque?

    Lovely room. Lovely curtains, are they bought or made? Can I ask where the black lamp is from? I have been looking for something just like that, but I cannot find it anywhere. Everything I found is too tall.

    I love this room! It looks like the perfect space to read or get a little work done. I do love your curtains, but I especially like the glass bookshelves. It makes the books look so polished….

    Your cat looks a lot like mine. They could be twins if it wasn’t for nose, my cat’s is all black. You can see a pic of him on the about page on my blog:
