A Purchase For The Dining Room

I am back from visiting my parents with the kids. It has taken a few days to get over jet-lag and I have a lot of catching up to do. Thank you to those who left comments on my posts while I was away. I do appreciate your visits and your thoughts very much.

I did a little shopping while I was in India. If I had had the time there would have been more but the priority was about quality time with my parents.

One of the rooms I wanted to shop for was the dining room which requires new curtains. I have the Silhouette® shades from Hunter Douglas in place already.

I wanted curtains which would be light and airy. I found these. 

These curtains are 100% cotton and are handwoven with this simple copper-like gold-and-white pattern.

And this elegant border was a pleasant surprise. The border will fall below the chair rail and the shape of the pattern coincidentally ties in to the ikat stencil pattern on the walls above the chair rail.

I also like to pair silver with gold in the same space.

Here is a picture of the window from across the room.
And here is what will dress it up.

I am off to see what I have missed in the past couple of weeks in blogland. Hope you are all enjoying your summer!

  2. Great find, Lisa. I bet they'll look perfect in your dining room. So glad you had a good time visiting with your parents!

  3. Love the metallic accents and lovely pattern border on the curtains; they should accent your beautiful stencil work nicely. Its wonderful you place a high priority on quality time with your parents ... with my mom she would have been dragging me to the stores. Nice to have you back and eager to see those curtains up!
