I finished sewing the dining room curtains a few days ago. Then we had to rearrange a little bit of furniture and change some the the art on the walls to make everything work.
I tried taking pictures on a sunny day and on a cloudy day. The window in the dining room makes it hard to get a good picture of the curtains. Here they are.
The fabric has gold, red and green in a plaid pattern. It is called Burgess Plaid Antique Red.
It is the perfect color combination for my home. I read recently on someones blog (sorry, I don't remember who) that red, gold and green were not in style anymore in French Country design. Sorry, but I don't believe it. I do enjoy seeing French Country in grays, creams and whites, but I still love my color.
I am a firm believer in decorating in a style that makes you happy. Red, green, gold and blue make me happy. Besides, they are the colors found in nature and does nature ever go out of style?
What colors make you happy?
