Today we’re so excited to welcome interior decorator extraordinaire Jenny of Finishing Touch Décor to the Country Curtains blog! Jenny is showing us how easy it is to freshen up your home for spring and summer with super-simple décor updates.
Hello to both new and longtime friends! I’m so happy to be a guest blogger today here at Country Curtains!
The warmer months are such a great time to do some serious décor swapping and refreshing in our homes. Many do this with pillows and accessories; I take it a step further and swap out curtain panels and bedding.
In our living room we have blue/grey walls and white slipcovered furniture. I knew adding the Royal Batik 96″ lined curtain panels would be the beautiful vibrant pop this room needed. Going with the longer length really does fool the eye that our window is much taller and grander than it actually is. Pairing the Royal Batik panels with a custom Natural Woven Waterfall Cordless Roman Shade in the Ares Wheat color is a perfect match. The shades offer not only functionality with both privacy and light-blocking benefits, when needed, but also beauty! The texture and color offers such a beautiful contrast with the panels.
The other added benefit of these panels and shades is that they finished off the room beautifully. Curtain panels are like the perfect jewelry for our home that completes a look. Just as that special necklace completes the simple black dress, curtain panels are the crowning jewel to a well-dressed home.
The bedroom is another room that can benefit from some seasonal décor swapping! Time to pack up the heavy quilts and curtains and swap them out for some lighter and brighter pieces.
I just adore the raised ruffle on the quilted bedding and pillow shams from the Gemma Cotton Quilt Collection. It’s so bright and beautiful. It’s also machine washable which means it’s low maintenance! That’s a win win in my book!
My windows have shutters but because of their size we still need panels to block out early morning sunshine. Because the windows go right up to the wall I opted for just one panel on each window. The Linen Check Rod Pocket Curtains in the green is the perfect solution! I love this color so much and the oversized check adds the cottage look I adore!
Thank you Country Curtains for helping me put the perfect finishing touches in my home. The power of transforming a room by simply changing out curtain panels is something I often recommend to my clients and I couldn’t be happier taking my own decorating advice! Country Curtains’ selection of both classic and modern curtain panel fabrics make decorating a breeze in any season!
