I already have the curtains, which I picked up from Ikea months ago. They are plain white and while that will give a very crisp feel I would like to add a little interest. I'm toying with the idea of adding a wide band of patterned fabric either at the top or at the bottom of each curtain panel. The curtains also come with hidden tabs which may look great but I'm also toying with the idea of using curtain clips. As you can see, the plan is somewhat evolving and some of the particular details will come together as I go. Here are some possible ideas.

I'm not sure if I'll go with all solid fabrics or try to bring in a fun pattern. At this point, I'm leaning toward the patterned fabric but we'll see how I feel when it comes time to actually make it happen. There you have it. That's where I'm at in the living room saga. I anticipate that I'll have the rest of the pennies needed to pick up those curtain rods very soon and then I really will have some before and after photos for you. Until then, happy decorating.
