I´ve been thinking about curtains for a while, and with the new grey color in the living room, I´ve finally gotten some curtains up as well. With the big windows in this corner it felt a bit cold and “naked” so I thought now that winter is on its way it would be nice with some curtains.
By the window towards the view, I´ve just hung one curtain to cover the wall on the side – both to soften up the area, but also to cover up some non flattering heating switch and socket. Ideally, I’d hung the curtains all the way up to the ceiling, but since there is a wooden beam in the way on the other side where I have curtains, I chose to have them on the same height.
Towards our neighbour I´ve hung curtains on the whole wall so we can get some more privacy in the evenings if we want to. During daytime I take them aside to get more light in.
Hanging curtains this high certainly give a loungy feel, and I love the new look these curtains gave.
Best of all, everything was on a low budget as well. For the curtains, rails, and gliders etc., I ended up with approx. $85 ( ca. 700 NOK ) in total – not so bad, huh? ( I bought the curtains at Ikea, and the rest at Kid Interiør. )
