I'm pleased with the curtains!
First off when you look at the sample wallpaper, curtains, and carpet they oughtn't to "match" but spookily they do! very very well in fact! I keep opening and closing my curtains which is proving annoying to the family! but its been so long since we've HAD curtains and never such NICE ones!
In the past I've always made them. But usually I've failed to finish - hems usually! this time I elected to get them made instead and it was worth the money in my opinion and the week or so that we've waited for the finials etc, they've been loosely tied in three positions in their "pleats" and are now behaving nicely and uniformly. I hope that any slight creasing effect will drop naturally as they wear in and overall the effect of the floral one side of room, passing to the patio/curtains and onto the plain/textured papers is absolutely LOVELY and I LOVE IT!
I think you can see our tv corner? just? we treated ourselves to a nice HD/3D new one, and no.2.son is currently sitting and watching the Mens Finals, Wimbledon slightly cross-eyed with the single pair of specs that comes with the set! it took us ages to fathom HOW to switch them on, set them up and an hour before we twigged we needed to set the TV! luckily the tennis is going on .. and on .. zzz and on ..
All we need now is for our lovely new furniture to arrive!
