It's Friday, and I am linking with Kelly's Korner "show us your life" series. This week Kelly is asking "What window treatments do you have in your home?"
I am not a believer in heavy curtains. Luckily, I do not have neighbors in the back of my house, so for the most part, I can leave my wooden blinds open and let the sun in. I love to have light, open window treatments that show off the window frame and the trees outside, instead of hiding them.
Sometimes, it is ok to say no to curtains. I am going to give you two examples of how this can work in your home. First, below is a photo of the window treatment in my laundry room. The window is on the east side of my house and I choose to let the morning sun stream in. For color and fun, I have placed a flower swag above the window frame, with sunny, yellow daisies and ivy. This adds interest to the top of the window, but does not cover the view. It is attached with clear wire and two small nails.
You can use your imagination - just know it is possible to use unusual items that work with the theme of the room, instead of curtains, to add interest and color.
Have a great summer weekend :-)
