Though I made an exception for bedroom curtains. The house didn’t come with any and we’re sick of being woken up during the middle of the night from thunderstorms.
So off to everyone's favorite Swedish superstore...Ikea! I wasn't sure if I would find anything for the bedroom, but I knew I wanted white curtains for the front room. I picked up a pair of Vivan white curtains and a Beskada curtain rod (83 - 152 in).
I love them! The front room is one step closer to finished.
Now for the bedroom. The tricky part is the windows wrap around a corner. And we have our bed underneath the windows. Oh, and did I mention we're not sure how we want to decorate the room?
As luck would have it, I found something I loved at Ikea. The store carried some new styles of curtains that aren't online. They remind me a bit of Kate Spade.
I bought two pairs of Ninni Rund curtains and the Kvartal curtain track system (3 single track rails, 1 corner piece, 5 brackets, and 2 sets of gliders). The dots are shiny and seem to glow at night. We might go neutral in the bedroom with pops of color, so the texture of the dots will create some visual interest.
By the way, make sure you pick up the necessary hardware before trying to install your curtains. Ikea doesn't include screws or anchors with their curtain rods. They sell the hardware separately. I didn't realize that, so I had to make a quick trip to Home Depot.
