Romantic puddles…

Weird title, huh?!

Thanks for the kind comments last week on the bedroom design lovelies, much appreciated!  So one of the last items to install in there are the floor length white linen drapes.  I’ve been hunting high and low for a good curtain maker here in Singers and think I have finally found one…

So although the rest of the room is pretty contemporary / ethnic / sleek, I’ve been increasingly going slightly gaga for traditional puddled curtains.  They’re usually set in gorgeous French inspired spaces with elaborate chandies and trad furnishings, but they can also work well in a more modern space.

Totally impractical when cleaning mind you, probs best for homes sans pets…

So here are some luscious versions I’ve been oogling of late – make sure you let me know what you think!

    I think they are gorgeous…very romantic. I would personally choose a lighter fabric to go with the rest of your design and not implement anything too heavy. Can’t wait to see how it looks!

    Magnificent! Yes, I’m getting quite into this design malarkey and I think we need some bold statement curtains in our home!

    I never even thought I would like this until I saw it here, it looks so luxurious and ultra lavish, I think you also have to have the type of windows and room decor to suit it. Would love to hang out in the first room, it really is a picture of romance. Thanks for your opinions on my Oscar post 🙂

  4. Marie Antoinette. These instantly make me think of Marie Antoinette, and I am beyond in love. These would be stunning in your living space – the first three are my favorites. I just love the pastel shades! 🙂

  5. How about that perfect light purple curtains? I like them a lot, Elly! Actually, I like everything in these pictures and my opinion is that a great curtain can make a house much more beautiful. Go for them! Kisses
