Onto decor bidness. I was catching up on blog reading yesterday and I came across this image of blue taffeta curtains on Cote de Texas:
and I died.
And then I came back to life.
I love the look of extra long blouncy (it's not a word) silk or taffeta drapes that puddle on the floor. It's a look The Suze used and still uses in our house growing up, but I first saw it on a smaller scale when I stayed in the New Orleans apartment of a friend of a friend. She was in her 20s and we were in high school and I think it was her first big girl apartment. It was a small one bedroom decorated in all white, and she had these big white silk drapes in her living room that pooled at the bottom. I was obsessed. I still am.

I'm thinking of adding this look to my bedroom in the new house. Specifically, pale blue silk taffeta drapes against white walls. The owners are leaving some pelmet boxes for us that are covered in a pink toile so the question is do I recover them in something like a white or blue velvet (see below) and let the taffeta flow from underneath them or get rid of them all together? Thoughts?
