Banded Curtains

Do you believe in love at first sight?  Some argue that it's merely lust.  What was it like for you?  Did you know immediately?  Did you have to think about it?  I'm not talking about your husbands, ladies!!!  I'm talking about that special piece of home decor! Get your priorities straight!!

My latest love at first sight item is banded curtains.  From the first time I laid eyes on this image in Tobi Fairley's portfolio, I knew I had to have them.  I guess it's sort of that same way for some girls and their shoes or purses.  Not me.  I'm the drape obessed one.  I'm just cool like that...

And, then I saw this image from the fabulous design portfolio of Sarah Richardson.  I must have these drapes now.  Obviously, all the cool girls have them!

I've already been to the local fabric stores looking for off-white fabric that is cost effective because I'm going to need a lot of it!  I've yet to be successful.  I'll probably head back out this weekend.  Wish me luck!


  1. Hey! Also to try and look online as well. I've been successful lately finding really good deals online at fabric stores!

  2. Maybe you can find some pre made - on sale of course - and add the colored bands. Or have you looked at the drop cloths in your favorite hardware store? Lots of fBric for the price, and if you predawn them the fabric really softens. Good Luck, can't wait to see what you do!

  3. I love these as well. I also like the kind with ribbon about an inch from the edge.
