window dressing eye candy…

I have been living in the same home for ten years and I think I’ve got a problem. I don’t have any drapes–shriek!!! Don’t panic, I’ve got blinds and the whole world is spared from seeing me when I get up in the morning–shriek!!!! It’s just that I have a bad case of can’t-make-up-my-mind-itis. I’m stuck on which way to go; therefore, I go nowhere.

My Victorian-style house has a large turret, which means I have a large bay window in the living room and another in our master bedroom right above. You might think a turret is “precious”, but it’s a design curse!! The thought of having to finance six drapery panels instead of two has frozen me in fear of making a huge style mistake that costs an arm and a leg. Do I go neutral? Do I go patterned? Then I think about the couches and the whole idea gets tossed out the window (I can whip up a pun even in the midst of intense drapery dilemma).

In my self-taught opinion, window dressing is like mascara. You can trowel on all the make-up you like, but if you forget the mascara…march right back in that bathroom missy! Drapes finish a room–they’re that magical something that just makes a room sing. Imagine any of these rooms without them. They just wouldn’t have the same oomph, would they?
