A Question

I'm hoping you can help.

I took this window from BORING to . . .


I am looking for something simple yet not plain. I'm hoping someone can give me some advice!

What would you do?

Where do you go for inspiration?

Please Help, my brain is numb from too much thinking!


  1. I don't think it's super boring. But... I would probably add a rod and panels in a contrasting color, that seems to add interest. There is just a lot of neutral. Or could you just add ribbon trim to your current valance?

  2. Hi Robin,
    I think some COLOR would work...you could add some fun trim like Kim mentioned or buy some fun fabric and make something or head over to a thrift store and see what they have.
    Have fun with it :)

  3. Robin:

    I would use rattan shades, which would still be neutral but darker than your walls and will provide texture as well as interest. You could also have panels that hang on either side, just for some color.

    I keep a 3-ring binder with ideas I've cut out of magazines. This is where I turn when I need inspiration. Every so often I weed it out, but definite patterns begin to emerge in what I like.



I love hearing from you. Thanks for stopping by!
