Scarlett O'Hara Would Kill for these Drapes

Tuesday, November 23, 2010

The new secretary in it's rightful place (far right).

Do you know how long we've lived in our house? Two years, and in those two years we have not put any, that's right, any window treatments in our living room. We figured since everyone else had them up, we wouldn't need to worry about it for awhile. And honestly, the thought of spending a ton of money on window treatments didn't really motivate us. BUT we are singing a different tune now that the drapes are finally up and we have the privacy that the rest of the neighborhood has had.

The minute I saw these Pottery Barn Velvet Drapes in the catalog, I knew they were perfect for the room. With winter just around the corner, I knew velvet would be most appropriate and the color (Maple Leaf - the perfect mix of red and orange) was exactly what the room needed - that perfect pop of color that would contrast with the walls and really complement all of the other colors found in the room.

And anything in velvet is a-okay with me. Seriously, the minute I took the drapes out of the packaging, I thought to myself, "I want a Scarlett O'Hara dress made out of these!". I think my husband thought I was a bit crazy for saying that, but trust me, they REALLY would make a fabulous southern belle gown.

Seeing the room with drapes, I ask myself how could we have gone without them for that long??
