Library Windermere Curtains in the Library Yep, still looking for the perfect curtains in there. I’ve ordered Anthropologie’s Windermere curtains (on sale), and I have high hopes for them. I did a little mockup and everything. On October 10, 2009 38 You Might Also Like...

Reply Aimee October 10, 2009 at 10:41 am Those look like a perfect choice! Love the pattern. Reply gabrielle October 10, 2009 at 10:49 am i really like those! Reply Sarab October 10, 2009 at 11:01 am I have been following your blog for about a year (although never posted a comment before)and I am always amazed by your style Nicole… It has even inspired some project in my home but I don’t know about this curtains, I think I don’t love them as I love the rest of your beautiful home, sorry. Reply megan October 10, 2009 at 11:05 am oohh! i really like those. the scale of the pattern seems just right for this location. nice selection! Reply Amy P. October 10, 2009 at 11:06 am *How* did you grab a swatch and put it into your waved curtains? I guess I’m only used to dropping swatches that are repeats but flat into flat objects… (I’m a bedding designer) Reply Making it Lovely October 10, 2009 at 10:17 pm One of the other product photos had the folds in it. I grabbed that, skewed it to match the perspective in the room, and adjusted the layer’s opacity. Reply Audrie October 10, 2009 at 11:06 am Love it! I do think those curtains would be perfect in that space! Vastly different from what you had originally, but it definitely suits it. Reply Mary October 10, 2009 at 11:38 am Those will look great in there! I love your blog! Reply danielle October 10, 2009 at 12:12 pm I like how light is still coming in with them. Reply robin October 10, 2009 at 12:23 pm wow, this is a really hard window to dress! every idea you’ve posted would definitely work… but you’ll know it when you’ve found THE ONES :O) Reply Camilla October 10, 2009 at 12:26 pm I think they look great. I wonder why they are called Windermere though? If you haven’t heard of Windermere, it’s one of the most beautiful places in England. Reply Christina October 10, 2009 at 1:53 pm These are okay, but I love your sense of colour, and these are too plain for my tastes… (I adooooore anthropologie since you put me on to it) When I was researching oilcloths for recovering my dining room chairs, I found an amazing fabric designer in the UK, but it’s a bit pricey, so I never got anything. However, She does stuff that’s not just oilcloth, and the fabric she’s made seems right up your alley. I think the mustards in her colour schemes would suit your room and seem more you (quirky and beautiful) than the antrho. curtains. Cheers. http://www.annabelgrey.co.uk/ Hope you like the link. Cheers, Christina Reply Making it Lovely October 10, 2009 at 10:10 pm Oh, those fabrics are so fun! Reply Kalee October 10, 2009 at 2:37 pm This looks fantastic! Reply shayne October 10, 2009 at 4:34 pm so my computer crashed before you had the baby, how long ago was that now, and I could not remember the name of your blog and I have thought of it many times since I lost your address. here you are and I am not taking any chance, you now being followed. so happy to find you again. Reply Kristin October 10, 2009 at 6:36 pm They look great but maybe add a yellow tieback or embellishment of some kind to add a color (I am so not a curtain person – I don’t know what that stuff is called). Or toss in a pillow? I dunno just throwing ideas out. The shape in the pattern is very much your style so I can see why you where drawn to them. Reply Making it Lovely October 10, 2009 at 10:11 pm I was thinking of adding mustard yellow pompoms along the side and maybe on a tie-back, but I’m waiting to see how the curtains look first. ;) Reply Kelly October 10, 2009 at 6:49 pm Nicole, I probably trust and admire your style more than anyone’s on the planet (huge fan), but I’m with those who are having some doubts about these particular curtains. There’s something about the way the pattern and color is interacting with the other colors in the room that just isn’t singing to me. Maybe the real deal will work a bit better. But if you like ’em, it is your (fabulous) casa after all! Reply Making it Lovely October 10, 2009 at 10:12 pm I don’t think the color is quite perfect in the mockup, but the lighting on the product picture and the lighting in the room is so different… I’m hoping all of the colors will work in the real space. Reply Beth@321home October 10, 2009 at 7:42 pm Oh, yes, yes, yes! I think you’ve finally found them! Reply Amanda Nicole October 11, 2009 at 9:39 am Ooo, I like! I love the bold pattern, and the warm colour looks great with the yellow paint :) Reply micah October 11, 2009 at 10:03 am Very pretty! Reply Jay October 11, 2009 at 11:04 am These are beautiful curtains- but- I don’t think they are right for this space. They make the space look pretty in a very traditional way (kind of boring). I really like the floral curtains that you had in your studio and then tried in the library. They are vibrant and fun. Seems more your style. Reply Josh (in Wonderland) October 11, 2009 at 3:32 pm The mood of this room can change so much just by swapping out the curtains. I think these look great in the mockup especially for the fall. The scale of the pattern looks perfect, too! Reply Blondie October 11, 2009 at 6:18 pm YES! Reply kasey October 12, 2009 at 7:09 am gorgeous!! Reply Anne October 12, 2009 at 7:46 am LOVE these!!! But when I click on the link, they aren’t on sale. How did you get so lucky? Reply laurennicolelove.com October 12, 2009 at 11:00 am ah i love these. anthropologie is the best answer 9 times out of 10, hehe. – lauren xoxo laurennicolelove.blogspot.com Reply jbhat October 12, 2009 at 11:08 am Hmm. Not sure. YHL just posted something with some similar looking curtains from West Elm that I thought you might want to check out…just in case you are on the fence. Reply The Bella Girls October 12, 2009 at 11:37 am I heart them! I’m thinking they’d look fab! ~Camberley Reply Ann October 12, 2009 at 5:36 pm They suit the space for a library and are very rich looking. I think you’ve found your curtains. Reply JenWoodhouse.com October 12, 2009 at 9:21 pm I like the darker fabric… helps ground the room with all the pink and white. I think you found the one! Reply Chelsea October 13, 2009 at 11:26 am Good choice! I think it really adds something extra to the room and it’s a fun color. Reply Chelsea Talks Smack October 13, 2009 at 2:38 pm Just more reaosn why i’m obsessed with Anthro! Reply Sharon October 13, 2009 at 5:44 pm Perfect Reply Nakisha October 16, 2009 at 8:25 am http://www.honfleurhome.com/ItemList.cfm?CatID=2021&ShowAllItems=1&ShowMaxRowItems=0 I say keep looking, those aren’t bad though. I saw this while surfing and thought of your curtain dilemma.
