It is been a while since I posted anything interior design related. If you see my house, you will agree with me that I have absolutely no right to talk about what is pretty and in in home decorating nowadays. In fact, sometime last August, I took “before” pictures, hoping those pictures will get me interested in sprucing up our living spaces. But no, to this day, I am nowhere near my ideal “after” look.
Today, I won’t showcase the mess that is my house but let me share what makes me gush everytime I see it. My lovely lovely curtains.
Oh well. I love how solid the color is from the outside. I love the contrast with the paint.What I don’t like are those distracting reflections of the cable wires.
From the inside, it is bright and sheer.
Early last month, I got inspired by Leslie’s chairs. Even though I came home from work at 1AM one Saturday, I forced myself to wake up at 6 so I can go to Divisoria. I bought cloths from the side walk vendors of Ilaya. If you are on a hunt for affordable cloths, Ilaya Street is the way to go. I got my lovely curtains for only 30 bucks for 2 yards.
And because I am lazy, instead of sewing one end of the cloth so that there will be space for the curtain rod, I improvised. I used four safety pins instead! hahaha.
Now, I have that nagging feeling again, the same nagging feeling that made me go to Divisoria. I can’t stop thinking about Helene’s new pillow covers. Haaaay. Promise, I have been thinking about them since last week. I think her 3 for 100 pillow cases would look great with my curtains.
