We finally hung curtains throughout the rental. All curtains we already had. Thank goodness there were enough for the windows in the rental, as we had not yet covered all windows in Phoenix AND we sold about 8 panels in the garage sale prior to the move.
But, what a difference curtains made to the family room in particular!
It was pretty cold and uninviting. We spent time in the loft mostly due to that fact – with all the hard surfaces the room really needed some additional fabric to soften it up, as well as to break up the tan!
You can see a box still on the floor and paper over the backyard doors prior to the curtains being hung.
But, here she is with curtains!
With the chairs the other way.
And, so you can see that there are other curtains in the other direction.
Can you see the difference curtains make?
It’s all similar to our last home, as we used most of the same items. New items include a bench from the master bedroom, a white end table from the master bedroom, and a few pillows taken from the master bedroom. That’s the advantage of using similar colors throughout a home!
Not too bad for using what we had in the room.

If you have a room that feels cold, hard, uninviting, try adding curtains! It’s one of the last things many people add. I know a few who are particularly resistant to it (some for health reasons… I’m not referring to them), but they add so much warmth and color to a room!
I cannot emphasize the impact of curtains enough. If you can’t afford them, consider making them. Or, consider buying from a place like IKEA.
Do you have curtains? Where did you get yours?
