Window Treatments

11 years ago

I am finally beginning to decorate my living room. The walls are a strange shade of blue with a hint of green. I ordered new side tables which will be here in a couple of weeks, and I also have continuous rice paper roller shades in wicker on their way - here's the URL for those.

I have been stalling decorating this room even though I love to decorate and can't wait for it to be done. For some reason the color was throwing me off. I promised my husband I wouldn't make him paint. Anyway, last week it hit me that I would like to see some rich green. Not sage (which I love) but for some reason the color of a puffy, deep, rich taffeta green. Like a jewel. Either a deep deep teal or emerald, or even an irredescent.

I love old. My former home was an older home and I had no problem decorating. This is home is stuck in the 80's and I want to decorate with a fresher look for today and yet still reflect what I like.

Anyway, I found these drapes today online and I think I'm going to go have a look. But I need some opinions. What do you all think. Am I nuts? Do you think this will give me the look I'm after?

I don't know how to get the window treatments to appear in my post.

Here's my room (I've since taken down the hodge-podge of stuff on the walls and the blanket chest and TV is out of the room. I also have a large palm plant on the hearth now:
