A white buffet with light sea blue bobble knobs, a small crystal chandelier with gold trimmings, a mahogany table in the corner topped with a crystal elephant case and crystal lamp... I'm feeling a whimsical and romantic vibe in the dining room and I know the right kind of window treatment to make it just so.
To create a romantic and whimsical feel in the dining room I used a wooden rod with simple ball filials at the ends (Wooden Ball Drapery Rods $24.99 - $39.99) and sheer cotton curtains in Natural (Natural Crinkle Voile Curtain Panel $14.99), both which I purchased from Cost Plus World Market.
Because the curtains only give off a minimum of privacy as they are fairly sheer and thin it's best to reserve these curtain panels to windows in the home that need less privacy where perhaps the goal may be to dress up the window while keeping the area shaded from sunlight, for these things the curtain panel works perfectly and is absolutely beautiful as well.
|The curtain has ties along the top to be secured around the curtain rod. I find the rows of bows to be charming.
|The dining room window is rather long and so I purchased three rods and 6 curtain panels.
The end result was more beautiful than I imagined. The curtains float with the breeze that passes through the open windows and its Natural coloring gives off a sense of light and airiness that completely transformed the dining area into a place of romanticism.
