This, my dear friends, is what I have been living with as a window dressing for the past 8 weeks in my dressing room. I would move the curtain in front of the boots and shoes when I didn’t fancy my neighbours seeing my bits as I was getting changed and
when I did fancy them seeing my bits when I wasn’t getting changed, I would leave the curtain like so:
|Gotta love me some tab top curtains circa 1998.|
Pretty awful eh? Yes I know.
So, having had enough of my makeshift window dressing (and after a failed attempt at purchasing a roman blind from Next that didn’t work with my colour scheme – too duck egg rather than bluey turquoise) I opted for something much more simple:

We’ve had nothing but rain & clouds lately!
You have no idea how delighted I am with my ultra simple roman blind from Homebase. I’m sure my neighbours are equally as delighted.
I have lots of plans for this glorious little room but as we are concentrating our money on the living and dining rooms at the moment, I am having to get by with something a little plainer for now and exercise patience.
My ultimate scheme will tie in the lovely colours from this wallpaper as I shared with you previously:

That doesn’t mean I can’t have pretty things while I wait, however. And so I have been thinking about how I might embellish my little simple blind here.
One option is to add a ribbon trim like so:
Another option is to add pom pom trim, in white:
Or possibly turquoise:
I am unsure what I want to do as yet. I may end up buying a few bits and seeing which one I like the best.
I have to admit that I’m slightly in love with this look…
I did, however, want to show you something… I was in my garden, thinking about my little dressing room and which option would be best for my blind and I looked up in the sky and saw this:
Do you think it’s a sign???
What would YOU do? Leave it plain and simple? Or embellish? Let me know in the comments…
