But, I don’t know about these guys. They aren’t lined (I knew they weren’t) and despite knowing how much of a pet peeve unlined curtains are for me, I still bought them. And, yet, knowing they weren’t lined and consciously making the decision to buy them regardless, I still groused about the fact they weren’t lined ten seconds after they were up.
Also, you have no idea how I pleased I am that an opportunity to use the word “grouse” has all but fallen in my lap. It beats the word “grumble” by ten, at least.
So, the curtains. They aren’t lined. And is the silk too twee? Too formal against all that rough and tumble stone? I’m not too worried about how they hang. They’ll look better once I iron and then train them properly. They are hanging on double rods, so I can always put sheers behind them. Plus, I was thinking of hanging some bamboo matchstick blinds for more texture. (Can you tell I am now paranoid about having enough texture? I’m about ready to glue-gun a cotton ball installation on the south wall.)
I repeat: good a good decorator/designer is worth their weight in gold.
