Dining Drapes

I can never focus on one room and complete it.  It’s like a disease I have.  I still have not totally completed my living room.  I blame this on my ugly sofa which unfortunately isn’t going anywhere, anytime soon.

In my defense, my dining room was empty since I sold my table.  I’m looking for an old farm table but until I save up and find the right one, this table of my mom’s will do the trick.  Ghost chairs to arrive soon to add a touch of modern.  But… I think the room really needs is a bit of fabric and pattern.  I’m terrible at this.  And since I know me and that it will never get done I was thinking maybe some panels from Anthro to go over the sheers?  Don’t drag it out… just do it (in fact, I’m hoping to stop in there in Chicago this weekend).

Above are a few that I like (the room is a light Restoration Hardware Blue and I have brown granite & cherry cabinets in my adjoining kitchen – not my fav combo but no changing that either).

Do you like?  Which one?  There is a number of other pretty selections on their website, as well.  Have you seen any other stylish, pattern panels?

    i really like the wavy stripes and the seven seas on their website…but any of your choices will look good, esp. with the ghost chairs! x

    I am the exact same way! I can never finish a room.

    Any of the curtains would look good , but I especially like the wavy stripes.

    Oh your dining room is awesome, I love the windows. This is tough, I actually REALLY like all three…I think the coral chevrony pattern is really speaking to me though!

    I really like the first set of curtains. I think they'll add the right amount of extra color to the room.

    I really love the last set. Very versatile too, and you can change the colours of the room easily without anything clashing xx
