It only took a year and a half. We lived with the “half” curtains and then naked rods for a loooong time. But then village security reported some unsavory dudes lurking around our neighborhood – and our curtainless living room provided for a clear, unobstructed view of the house. I got so paranoid, I ran out and (finally) got curtains.
They’re the same sheer “Chloe” curtains from Arq Living that we have for the dining room. These are wider than the lanai curtains, are 96″ in length, and, I confirm, are Php 899.75 per panel. Since the “Chloe” curtains are wide, I only needed 5 panels in total for our itty bitty living room. (I discovered that I need additional panels for the lanai curtains, which are narrower).
The grey fuzzy thing at the bottom of the photo is the wool blanket thrown over my couch – yes, I moved it again. I’m enjoying the puddle effect of the curtains right now, so I pulled all the furniture away from the windows. Amazing how it makes our simple space look so light and, dare I say it, dreamy.
I still plan to change the curtains rods – those are my mom’s wooden ones. They’re so thick, the rings get caught, and we have a harder time pulling back the curtains. Also have a lot of “feels” for my Vigan tiles right now (I love how the deep red warms up my otherwise sterile white and black home), so our area rug won’t be back anytime soon.
