Here is our new house! It is so exciting to finally have our own space (I am sure I won't be nearly as excited when the first big repair/replacement comes along). I am continuing to have a dilemma with curtains for the dining room, so if you care to vote I would love the help! I had originally planned to put dark red or chocolate brown silk (the dupioni silk that looks kind of nubby) drapes with sheers underneath all the way from the top of the windows to the floor. My friend Stephanie suggested putting a curtain on the bottom 2/3 of the windows and leaving the top windows open for the natural light. It is a west facing window so it gets lots of sun in the evening. The dining room furniture will not be ultra formal (it's Crate and Barrel so it is somewhere between casual and pretty simple). I thought the longer, more formal drape may be a nice touch since the furniture is simple. Then again, the adjoining living room will most likely have seagrass blinds and a zebra striped rug, so the long drapes may be too much. O.K., enough rambling - I think I have proven I am in serious need of some outside opinions!
