I've been washing Linderhof's windows
Not an easy chore
For there are storm windows
and the inside of the inside windows
And the outside of the inside windows
(which are almost impossible to get to part of them from the inside --
but alas, some are on the second floor and I don't do ladders!)
But those windows -- the inside ones are old glass
Almost 100 year old glass.
And I treasure that!
When we were in England one of the things I adored about our
cottages that we rented were the curtains at the windows
Nice curtains and clean windows.
In 2010, the master bedroom at Linderhof
Had these rose print curtains
I like curtains but I felt that there was perhaps too much pattern
So I decided
That I needed blinds
And it was a much cleaner look
But a colder one
And besides, I loved the British look of curtains at the windows
beige linen curtains are plain enough that they don't "overwhelm" as the rose print ones did
But yet give that nice "curtain" feel to the windows
As if they are "finished"
Curtains are the jewelry of a window
And yes, I did remove the blinds!
I have window and curtain and the curtains close if I want them to!
Next to the bedroom is what I call my "dressing room"
It's a more important name than the room really deserves
for it isn't really big enough to be a "dressing room"
and in reality it is a closet.
A closet with a full size window
But a closet nonetheless.
My quandary --
The window with the blinds pulled up
This is the only 1946 blind remaining
And with the blind down.
But do I need a set of curtains for this window also?
Or because there is a door that separates it from the bedroom
And it is a "functional" space, does it need a curtain?
I'd appreciate your opinion
To see whether or not I need to order another curtain.
It is Monday and I'm joining Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Met Monday.
