First of all, I just have to say how proud I am of myself today. I got both of the girls ready, AND myself (including make-up and a hair wash--big accomplishment right there even without a newborn), went to story time, the bank, the grocery store, AND...wait for it...I made dinner (again, big accomplishment even without a newborn). This is kind of a big deal for me, because having a newborn again is rocking my world. This momma needs her sleep. I'll be honest, this probably won't happen again any time soon, but, for today, I'm feeling pretty awesome.
But, enough about me. Let's talk about my curtains instead. My number one, most important design tip is hanging window treatments appropriately. First of all, they need to be long enough. Unfortunately, most big box retailers sell 84" curtains. Eighty-four inches is not long enough. You most likely need at least 96" or 108". Try to hang your curtains as high as you can and as wide as you can. It makes your window look way bigger, makes the room look bigger, and also lets in more light, which is always a bonus. Check out my bedroom with and without curtains. See? Curtain placement makes a huge difference!
