The Drapes Are Up!

On instagram {amberbinteriors} I gave a little sneak peek into the drapes I finally hung in our dining room. When I repainted the walls, I realized I also wanted to raise the curtain rod up to the crown molding. I already had two silk panels left over from the living room that I didn't need. They used to be too long for this room, but now with the rod being raised about 6 inches, they're perfect! So, to tie the two rooms together, they both have the same drapes. Here are some afters...

I used my method that I discussed here for hanging the drapery panels. Installing your curtain rod higher than the window molding not only makes the room feel taller, it also opens it up, creating a fresher, more open space. You would be surpised how such a small detail makes a big difference.

Make sure to come back on Monday for an amazing art giveaway!
Happy Weekend!!

Love the look with the rod all the way to the ceiling and only one panel on each window!

I don't think I can ever go back to drapes being hung at window height- I'm with you on this one!

Love. And yes...so many places I wish I had hung the drapes differently. Live and learn. Of course, we been in our house 20 years!!

Your dining room is looking so elegant, Amber. I really like the color of drapes you chose. They look beautiful with the wall color.
