I found it......
and I love it! It takes me away to decide on the exact look I want for draperies or anything for that matter, but this is the style of draperies I want for my dining room. I was lounging with my friends in the hotel room in Dallas pouring over magazines.
These pictures are from the current issue of Southern Lady magazine. As soon as I saw them, I knew it was the look I wanted...a little formal, but friendly at the same time.
The pleats are called goblet pleats. A perfect name for a dining room, don't you think? ;)
These are the bare windows that are screaming out to be covered. I have the silouettes for privacy, but we've lived in our house long enough that it's time for more than privacy. I want them "dressed"!
Here are the fabrics. The brown with gold swirl will be the draperies. The gold fabric on the left with the fun little glistening specks will be for a little swag in the center. It is called moondust and I thought it was beyond fun! If I use the red/orange fabric on the right, it will be for colored buttons at the baes of the goblet pleat. Another view of the fabric
Red dining rooms are always, always gorgeous, but wondering "when " they might go out of vogue concerned me. I was considering painting the room more of a golden color.
