The Thursday Three- In which I actually make a critical curtain decision

20140719_073555Yes I know, I am obsessed. In my defence, having survived years of dust, dirt, demolition, rubble & squalor in our French village hovel , I think I am entitled to think about lovely fabrics and finishes.

Longer term visitors to this blog will know that most of my textiles collected  for the village house are antique or vintage, but I have strayed off-piste for a second new buy for the salon curtains.

There was a short list of three:-

1 White and taupe linen (too white) 2 Upcycling an Indian silk thread bedspread, 3 New velvet.

 

Well I have taken delivery of the velvet today. Looks like old silk velvet, but is practical synthetic mix   and drapes like a dream. Slightly crushed and battered look to the pile (will suit me then). 20150304_103435

A perfect neutral with merest hint of washed out gold.

 

Excuse me whilst I go and stroke these lovingly……………
