When we initially moved into The Lovely Cottage we knew we had a lot of one thing – windows.  Each time our contractor came back with plans, we added windows.  Nothing makes me happier than natural light pouring into every room and opening the windows on a beautiful day or to listen to the rain.  (Which is what I’m doing currently!)  However, tons of windows mean one thing – drapes are a must!  While working with Q Designs over the last couple of months, the biggest thing I’ve learned is how much of an impact custom curtains make in a room.  The drapes we had before were nice, but they didn’t have a pretty pleat at the top and puddled too much on the floor because they we’re made to fit our room.  The minute we hung our curtains from Q Design, it was like the entire space just instantly came together.  Every detail suddenly felt and looked more luxe – the quality was on point, the color was neutral and the hem just barely grazed the hardwoods.  As you can see here, we have 10 drapes in our bedroom and 2 in the hallway leading to this space (also pictured), so the statement they make is worth every penny.  The hug the windows perfectly while still allowing light to flow through the room and add a cozy texture we were missing before.

For our exact curtains, we chose the House Linen in Fossil.  The color is a perfect combination of khaki and olive, bringing a neutral, earthy tone into the space that feels soft, yet stands out against our crisp, white walls.  In our hallway leading to the bedroom, we didn’t have drapes at all and it’s amazing how much warmth two simple panels add.  They frame out the space so beautifully!  For our pleats we did the Top Tack and love it.  It’s not quite as formal as the full-on French pleat, but still gives you that custom feel.

For all of our home, we love a mix of old + new and for our bedroom specifically, I feel like we’ve accomplished that.  Between our Maiden Home bed and Q Design curtains, the new mixes so well with the vintage pieces like the rug in front of our fireplace and antique English saddle.  The neutral, earthy palette really came together in such a cozy way and we feel so peaceful in this space.  It’s my favorite place in the world to wake up and there’s nothing better than crawling in your own bed at the end of the day.  Three years later, I think our bedroom is officially complete and we’re so thankful to partners like Q Design for making that possible!

Thanks so much for stopping by, XX.
