Window dressing

Noah’s new favourite game is hide and seek and our poor curtains are getting a beating. Although it’s cute seeing his little feet poke out from underneath and his smiley face unveiled, they’re now hemless and looking a bit weary. We have blinds on all the other windows which are nice and simple, but yawn, yawn….. I’d like something a bit more fun.

Our living space is small, so I wouldn’t really be wanting anything to bright and imposing. A while back I discovered some lovely window films by UK designer Emma Jeffs online. Her decorative films go straight onto the window and create pretty patterns, giving you privacy and sunshine (in Scotland? ha!). I guess they’re a modern version of good old net curtains. They’re also great as there are no cords for little hands to grab and get tangled. Here are my faves from her collection.

If traditional is more your thing and you like to get cozy of an evening by closing your curtains on the world, Anthropologie have a very pretty collection. Here’s a peek.

Or, if you’re feeling crafty, check out this clever lady’s upcycled curtain and beautiful patchwork.
