Beautiful Barn & Willow Drapes
Hello friends! Do you remember how I recently blogged about how I needed something to lightly frame my windows and provide some warmth at night? Well I went for it, I ordered new Belgium-grown flax linen drapes, also woven in Belgium, then sewn to my specs thanks to the lovely Trisha at Barn & Willow and her artisans who did a gorgeous job on my massive windows and double doors leading out to the wintergarten. I can't wait to redecorate this room now - so I started with my drapes and I'm going to work from there.
I love how they puddle lightly on the floor and the oyster sheer linen is just gorgeous for letting in light but also, at night, this window becomes a big black box so when I close them, the room is cozy and feels so home-y and nice. I wish I could have taken better photos but the house has been so dark for the past few weeks (particularly in the living room) since winter is swiftly approaching and Germany goes under a blanket of gray from now until next March. Thrilling! NOT! So it's time for candles, good music and decorating the home as this gets me through the dull months.
I love my drapes, don't you? They are just perfect. They don't take away from the gorgeous 115 year old doors and windows and they add a beautiful airy vibe. They looked particularly lovely a few weeks ago when it was still sunny and I opened the doors to let the sunlight and breeze from the forest in. I loved the way the linen danced in the air.
Please note: This post is NOT a paid post but was sponsored by Barn & Willow who supplied the drapes with the agreement that if I liked them, I'd install and if not, they'd be returned - no hard feelings. Lucky for us all, I really love them. I've been looking for the right drapes and these definitely fit the bill. The rod and rings, in gold, were found on Amazon.de - if anyone living local wants to know more, ask me in the comments section and I'll leave the link.
