$19 Curtains I would hang in my home!

Everyone always asks me what the quickest way to make your apartment look better and my answer is this - 1. Paint.  2. Light Fixtures and 3. Window treatments.  Although I love colored curtains and even more patterned ones - they get old quick so I always recommend White which looks modern chic and flawless.

I Love Bryn Alexandra not just because she is the sweetest human in the blogosphere but because she inspires me every day! In todays blog she showed these Ikea Drapes for $19.99










My bedroom Shade by the Shade Store  it is in white linen with a blackout shade attached  found and installed by Billy Cotton




My Den.. bought the curtains at Pottery Barn   and Billy Cotton put the trim on top


I LOVE LOVE LOVE this Curtain Rod from Restauration Hardware - I used it in My livingroom

  3. Bryn does such a great job mixing high and low items! I'm debating the same IKEA white curtains or sewing dropcloths for our curtains because we are out of money at the end of our renovation! Your home is beautiful!

    I plan on getting these drapes for our formal living room. I think I'm going to get 2 pairs per window and have them pinch pleated. I'll be sure to share how they turn out!! <3

  6. I bought Ikea Grommet curtains and had my seamstress sew a band of navy grosgrain ribbon around the edges. For less than $75, I had four custom panels done. I am currently working with her to do another set of the same curtains but with an orange grosgrain ribbon in a greek key pattern

  9. That's a very neat curtains. When you see I think it would be really relaxing. I would love to hang it in my home also. When I see it I would be stress-free.

  10. I also have these curtains and love them! The price is shockingly fantastic, it would be a great price for ONE panel in the package, but for $20 you get TWO, does not get any better.

  11. Did you have any problems with shrinkage with these drapes (if you washed them)? I just read a few comments on PB about this issue. I guess there are instructions to wash it before hanging, thus the complaints about shrinkage.

  12. Homes need different types of home decors for them to look appealing to guests. The beauty of a home reflects the owner's mind and personality. Elegant types of home decors play an important role in turning a house into a home. If you want your home to be comfortable, cozy, and nice, you have to put up the right decors. Each of the rooms in your house should be considered when choosing your decorations. Keep in mind that cost in not very important.
