SO I finally bought some fabric for some curtains! Yeah! I am so excited! :)
We have mostly green walls in the kitchen/dining room, with one white wall. I was originally thinking Amy Butler. For some reason I've wanted an Amy Butler kitchen for a long time.
We first decided on this.
Amy Butler Lark Dreamer Sparkle Midnight Blue
And this for the window above the sink
Amy Butler Lark Dreamer Treasure Box Ocean BlueBut then I decided on No.
I pulled out some Field Study by Anna Marie Horner
This would seriously awesome against the green walls!
Mind's Eye Jazz Navy
But against the white wall, it would have felt like a huge dark pit. I was excited to go bold, but I really like light a lot better!
So here's what I finally decided on:
Specimen Dreamy Blue
It looks way better in person and I think it is going to look amazing! Plus keep the light airy feel of our big rooms and big windows. :) Yeah! Neil really likes it too, which is good.
We thought of this one by Amy Butler in the dining area too, but decided this would look better in the living room, where we have three HUGE windows in the front and a bunch on the side. I already have some curtains on the side windows, that are a cream color with a burnt orange backing, whatever. I'm going to keep those for now, but I think these will all look good together. I'm SO excited to have some awesome curtains!!

I am excited for some style, and Neil is excited that he'll be able to walk around in his underwear in the mornings. lol. ;)
Now I'm just waiting for all this good stuff to arrive! I ordered the Field Study from Fabric.com LOVE shopping through Ebates first - you get 4% cash back, and then of course you can always find a coupon online.) and the Amy Butler from Three Dolls Fabric - she responded super fast when I asked for more yardage and had the best price on Etsy. :)
So now my question is, do you have a favorite method or pattern for making curtains??? I've made them a number of different ways, but I don't know what I love. I'm not going to put backing on any of these, so hopefully the fabrics to don't fade from the back... oh. I didn't think of that. :( Any suggestions?
