I recently got to help design a living room for our local home and garden show. It was a blast and the room looked fabulous, thanks to the furnishings of a local modern furniture store. But afterwards I felt kind of sad that my own home doesn’t have as much decoration as I would like. As renters we don’t feel firmly planted in the house so we don’t invest as much time and money in it as we might otherwise. But this is where I wake up everyday, and I want to love it for as long as I’m there.

So, I think one of the best and easiest ways to perk up the house is to make some curtains. I have a couple patterns from a Readymade article, and basic sewing skills. Does anyone else have a reliable pattern or fabric suggestions? Post a link!
