Our Master Bedroom was papered when we bought Linderhof-- in a sweet print/stripe of pink roses with caramels, beige and a bit of blue.
It's a bit unconventional for a MASTER bedroom -- more of a MISTRESS bedroom but it is good quality paper and Husband Jim doesn't mind sleeping in a roomful of roses.
I've struggled with curtains for the room -- from to the floor lace ones, a burgundy phase (what was I thinking), and these caramel ones that actually belonged to the sunroom next door.
My dressing room with the caramel curtains.
The bedroom with the caramel curtains (and Oliver supervising).
And you can see the touches of the caramel curtains on either side of the fireplace.
But then we were shopping on Friday and went to a JC Penney catalog outlet store. I wasn't SEARCHING for new curtains for the Master -- but in the back of my head was the idea that I would like to get new curtains for the three windows. And there, on a rack were these wonderful rose curtains that reminded me so of English chintz. A bit of the Bennison roses that Cote de Texas fancies.
The BAD thing about living in an old house is that there are usually more than one or two windows per room. And shopping outlet stores, often there are two pairs but never more than . . .
There seemed to be a lot of panels and upon taking them off one by one each read the required 84 inches . . there were three, four, five and finally six! Just the number I needed. They were originally $70 per panel, marked down to $32 and that day everything was 66% off and thus I got all six panels for just over $70 including tax!
I couldn't wait to change them out . . .

The two windows on each side of the fireplace with the new curtains.
The window to the right of the fireplace with the Belgian chair and the new curtains.
In celebration of roses on the window treatments as well as on the walls and some of the upholstery, I felt that I needed REAL roses in the bedroom . . . . a bouquet on the table beside the chaise.
And another bouquet on the table beside the bed. Amazingly, they are fragrant roses as well.
I do love these chintzy flowered curtains and feel that I finally "got it right" as far as Master Bedroom window treatments are concerned.
It's Monday and time for Met Monday so please join Susan at Between Naps on the Porch to see the other transformations this Monday.
