This whole "home decor" thing is pretty new to me. I mean, I've always decorated with little knick-knacks and such, but never really purchased curtains for my windows. I obviously need some help! We purchased some nice curtains from JC Penney home store a few months back. The kind that are energy-saving. LOVE them! But, what I don't love, is the fact that I didn't realize they wouldn't "meet in the middle" and look like they came out of House Beautiful magazine when we were done.
I don't have sheers up. I don't have valances. I think the rod looks like a blank stare. So what I do? I didn't like the matching valances, because they were a bit too frou-frou for my taste. Now that it looks so bare, I realize that I need to do something, but I am a bit clueless in the home decor department, so I need HELP! I really do want to have a "House Beautiful". I want to be like The Inspired Room when I grow up. But I am SOOOOOOOO far away from that!
Great thing is, Papa Bear has given me carte blanche basically, for decorating purposes. I just don't really know what to do, and I want to do it frugally too!
What do I do now? Any suggestions? Any and all advice will be taken with a grain of salt, but most likely, also appreciated greatly. I don't want it to look tacky!
