|a new lease for the linen curtains|
More than once I have come home with a serious house crush. No less than four times did I come home and want to weep when I looked at our hideous floorboards that are yet to be sanded and limewashed. And many times I came home with a great idea that I immediately put into action. Case in point - Annebelle's curtains. These linen curtains were bought at IKEA some time before we moved to Sydney, so that makes them about eight years old. They have been great, but were starting to yellow, and I was just a bit over them. Then at an AMAZING home I saw in Prahran, the clever homeowner had exactly the same curtains which she had dyed black, and the result was gorgeous. A quick trip to Spotty for some dye to pop into the machine and now the moody, slubby, black linen has given Belle's bedroom a great new look.
ps I am still on the hunt for gorgeous homes to feature so please don't hesitate to contact me if you have one or know of one! hx
