Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas

Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

More Curtains

 A few years ago -- our guest room was a bit
lots of pillows
lots of window treatments
well, just "lots"!!!

The guest room circa 2011

And we decided to simplify

Less pillows
Less fuss
Less window treatments
Layers of curtains being traded
for blinds

But I found that I was not a good "blind cleaner"
And I didn't like dirty blinds either!

And when I did clean them I was never satisfied with how clean they were!

And the fact that I loved the simple curtains at the windows in the homes we lived in in England

I ordered
They came
I installed

The same beige linen curtains I put in the master bedroom
Beige instead of a color to match the wallpaper because
beige goes with everything
There is still the same amount of light
It's just softer with the curtains down the side of the window.

I'm much better at tending to curtains than I am blinds!

It's Monday and I'm joining Susan at Between Naps On the Porch for Met Monday
