New Home Office Curtains

~Chinoiserie Inspired Curtains~

 

I have to say that I am totally in love with my new office curtains!

Let me back up…

A few weeks back, I decided to say goodbye to my guest room and HELLO to my new home office/craft room. I then began going back and forth in regards to colors! I truly had no idea what I wanted to do!

So I decided to walk into the fabric store and just see what hit me. I decided to keep an open mind…decided not to “look for a particular color, pattern or design.” I decided to let it just jump out at me. And it did!

Curtain Fabric

I walked into Hancock Fabric and fell in love with this linen Chinoiserie style fabric. It has two beautiful shades of gray, yellow, green and a gorgeous shade of mauve. It’s totally not what I thought I’d choose! But I fell for it fast!

Once I had my fabric, I was then able to choose my paint color for my stenciled wall. I used London Coach by Valspar. It’s perfect with the fabric!

The stenciled wall and the curtains are the ONLY thing I have done in the room, but I just had to show you a sneak peek!

I love the pairing of the geometric design on the wall and the floral/bird design of the fabric.

Did you notice the bamboo shade?

It’s totally fake! It’s a faux DIY bamboo shade…and it cost a total of $3.00 to make! I’ll share more pictures and the tutorial for the shade this week. I’ll also share a tutorial on how to make the curtains too.

Now I can’t wait to start working on the furnishings!

  4. Oh you are going to love working in your new office! Well done – the stenciled wall, curtain fabric, and ‘bamboo’ shade look great together!

    • Thanks Jill! I think I am going to love it, but I still have a bit to do! I am search of the perfect desk right now. Hoping to find a great score at a thrift shop. Have a great week.

  9. Wow, that is gorgeous fabric, Leslie! I enjoy that method of “blind inspiration” when I go into a fabric store or one of my fave craft or home decor stores, and just let the inspiration hit me — sometimes it does and other times it doesn’t! Can’t wait to see your finished space.

  10. Can’t wait to see it progress Leslie!! I’m completely smitten with your room so far! Although – maybe I could bring a sleeping bag and visit you and make it a office/guest room combo! haha!! Love that fabric – such a great choice!
