I suggested we look for new Cottage curtains before repainting the interior of the Cottage.
Since she plans to paint the interior with a color similar to the current “Siamese Eyes” I suggested she look for curtains first then match the paint to the new curtains.
We headed off to Ikea with a paint chip scraped from the wall.
Unfortunately the chip was not compatible with the blue linen curtain.
There was a cotton velvet curtain that matched perfectly but we didn’t like the heaviness of the velvet.
I also saw a part linen part, viscose curtain at Country Curtains in the right color but the price was decidedly not right –even on sale, 3 times the price of the Ikea linen curtains.
So in the end we bought 3 pairs of Ikea linen curtains in the same creamy white as the ones in my living room.
Does color challenge you?
