Thinking About...Window Treatments for the Bedroom

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have gotten a quick laugh when you read my tweet last night about needing a bucket of water to get me up this morning. I just knew, I knew, it was going to be so hard getting back into the swing of things after a long holiday weekend. But a great weekend it was and now back to the grind...

If you remember some time ago, I've been gradually working on our master bedroom. We basically have a color palette of yellow, navy, and grey. I switched up the pillows...


And I had drafted a few options for window treatments, but nothing was really doing it for me. I do know that I want to keep the draperies light. I contemplated some white panels from IKEA, and that is still an option, but I'm always looking for other potential fabrics.



Both of these fabrics are from the Eileen Kathryn Boyd line for Duralee. They are a cotton/poly blend which I think would be fine for our bedroom.

My goal is to have something selected and ordered (if necessary) by the end of the month. Let's see if it happens.

Has anyone seen this fabric in person? I'd be curious to hear your feedback on it.

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!

  2. Hope you made it through the day without a nap, Holly! The fabric looks like it would be a great choice with the others in your room, I haven't seen it. My projects always have a better chance of getting done if I announce them! :)

  6. These are pretty, Holly. I have not seen them yet. I am more and more considering light white drapes for rooms, particularly at this time of year. There are so many options that have a light texture or pattern to them without being heavy.
