The lace lace curtains on my bedroom windows were looking very grim, a combination of sun damage and a playful Miss Twiggley. Once she discovered a little frayed edge to play with...well, that was the end.
These windows are a challenge, I need a bit of privacy at night but during the day I like the light and the view of the rear garden. The solution, Austrian curtains. They require a bit more work to make and hanging them by myself was a challenge but after a bit of frustration and lots of mistakes they are up.
Here you see them partially open in the morning to let in lots of light and the garden view...
And here, in another window you see them down.
Up, or down
I like them...and I think Miss Twiggley does too.
