Simple Linen Curtains

26 comments:
Simple can be really beautiful...but you already knew that

I have been searching for the last few months for some simple linen curtains for my bedroom in Ojai.

I pretty much looked at every catalog offering 
and priced out some custom pinch pleat curtains 
but decided that they might be a bit too fancy

I came across a wonderful source for linen sheets called Rough Linen
Please read Tricia's story....it's wonderful!


I love linen sheets for the bed,
 so I bought one to see what they were like....

talk about love at first site



They were packaged beautifully 
and when I felt the fabric I knew I had found 
my perfect linen

now the true test...I washed them

linen perfection!

 I decided to make the curtains myself...with a very large pocket at the top 
so they might look like they were casually draped over the rod.

 They are the perfect weight...heavy enough to keep the room dark at night...but sheer enough to let in filtered diffused sunshine during the day
 The pretty stitching on the hem 
gives them a more finish look...

I now have 5 sets of these 
covering my vintage and not so beautiful windows...
 They catch a breeze and move around...
but no rings or pulls 
or bells and whistles
 The iron rods are very simple too...you can find them here 

Best of all I can take them off and wash them 
and then just hang them back up!

Pretty Simple

  11. Hi Kelley,

    Linen is just such a versatile stample, classic and I am so obsessed with it and how it looks and feels. I felt some french linen that felt like silk and it was the highlight of my day.....if I could I would wrap everything in linen......one of those interior things I dream about, tell me I'm not the only one.

    Hope you have been well and behaving yourself, it's been ages since I've called in and left a comment, that was never ment to happen. Won't leave it so long next time!

    Take care
