Chances are you (like so many) place the curtain rod right where you’ve always thought it was supposed to go… a few inches from the top of the door or the window.
The gorgeous window above is a Kristen Rockwood design.
Rockwood (one of my top five favorite interior designers) told me a few inches can make a huge difference.
Now that you have the curtains in the right place, you need to decide if you want simple and versatile or dramatic.
“There’s this fabric line that I love. It’s Tonic Living and they have this really beautiful floral with dragons in it. It sounds crazy, but it’s beautiful.”
Click HERE to see the fabric from Tonic Living.
“Fabric is a way that you can be very bold and it’s something that’s very inexpensive and you can change. So you can live with it for a year or two and you can change it.”
If you’re not quite ready for dragons, there are patterns that might be more suitable for your taste.
Neutrals are a staple in many designer portfolios. The secret sauce is in the other colors.
“The pillows and the curtains and artwork are pretty bold. And then I like pretty neutral furniture… rugs.”
