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
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!
