This is the window facing onto our courtyard and all the flowering plants in it are red, raspberry or pink in colour, so I went with this cheerful and cosy crimson chenille fabric for the curtains to complement the outlook. Just a simple (huge!) rectangle of fabric two and a half times the width of the window, with curtain tape sewn to the top and triple pleat hooks inserted in the appropriate places... nothing fancy, but simple curtains are my preference. These have been up for about four years now. I love the subdued gloss of the polished steel curtain rods at the top and like to see them exposed. Thus no pelmets.
Unfortunately, being winter there are not many flowers here on my flowering plants, but in spring and summer it is a lovely rosy red view from here! I didn't time this post very well with the seasons, did I...?
