I’m taking the plunge into a beautiful turquoise sea as I “spring up” the house. We’re getting ready for baby, but we’re also preparing to host a great big celebration for our first-born son’s First Holy Communion. And I’m nesting, so things are getting serious around here.
We bought this house almost exactly five years ago. Over the course of the first year, I did very little in the way of decorating. There were so many other more important projects that required our focus, and our budget.
Over time, little by little, I have made and bought little touches and somehow, most of them have been red. Thankfully, turquoise and teal, juniper and blue, all look fabulous next to red. No need to eliminate everything. Really, this introduction of a new color has been more about editing than replacing.
To update the drapes, I chose a wide stripe and flat trim. The bottom portion used to be a red, gold, and green plaid with a tassel trim.
Classic and sleek. I think I’m in love…with my drapes.
