I love the look of these curtains. They're bright and energetic. I also think I like the way that they are hung and for the longest time I have been trying to figure how I will hang my curtains.Country curtains has a few options and I'm try to decide which direction I'll go.
I like the simple ball or the glass ball finials the best, just because they're classic and can really every be tacky. But, my biggest concern is how one of my windows is super close to the corner of the room. If put a curtain rod up with a finial, I have to take the finial off of that side.
This kind of rod which is also shown in the above pictures will allow me to pull the curtains back all the way to the wall and I don't have to worry about loosing a finial.
This is the Brunschwig & Fils Bird and Thistle fabric that I have been obsessed with for about a year now. I love the feel it evokes, how its beautiful, elegant not stuffy and still has a young look about it. Of course myself being a poor college student cannot afford it, so I found this other fabric from Calico Corners for about $20.00/yard. The colors are perfect for my livingroom as they have the browns of my couch, the greens on my walls, and the pale aqua that I have in my bedroom. I can also use the bright blue in covers for my chairs.
Below is another fabric that I ordered a swatch of to test in the kitchen.
