A Pair Of Silver Hoops

A Pair Of Silver Hoops

 

I love red lipstick.

And really big beautiful sparkling glittering irresistible earrings.

The kind that give you confidence.

Maybe that’s why I love window treatments……they are like jewelry for the house.

These drop cloth curtains are classic and affordable and simple……

……just like the perfect pair of silver hoops.

 

Silver hoops……you know….those earrings that can go anywhere.

I’ve worn them to a baseball game where I missed this absolute moment of brilliance.

I’ve worn them across Kentucky on the 100-mile-yard sale trek and out on date  day with the cutest carpenter on the planet.

Yep.

Those silver hoops.

Like a simple, classic curtain.

 

Today I’m posting about window decor over at the Lamps Plus blog.

And I was going for the silver hoop approach…..

…..but somehow a bunch of big, unusual, unique window treatments showed up instead.

Go figure. :)

PS  Here are four unique window treatment ideas.  You can thank the confidence earrings. :)

  1. Great ideas KariAnne! I love using something architectural to fill in a window … super pretty. I hadn’t thought about visiting my linen closet … hmmm those red and aqua toile tablecloths would really brighten a teenagers bedroom!

    Thanks for sharing and have a great week!!

  2. I just left a comment on your Lamps Plus blog post also, but wanted to come back here to say thank you! I thoroughly enjoy reading your fun blog – and as a lover of the silver hoop earrings – feel a bit of a bling connection! Have a wonderful day!

  3. Great article, KariAnne.

  4. You rocked that article Kari!!…You chose great examples….and always a great “story”….I made a comment…I stated in it that I am working on something similar to the 5th image in my guest/craft room with left over panels….stay tuned!…

  5. Love my diamonds and just never even thing of taking them out. TOTALLY love the jewelery analogy and the striped linen coverings C:

  6. I must say drop cloth curtains woul look like drop cloths in my house. The way tou put the whole room together makes the drop cloth curtains look like a million dollars! Love your style Karianne! ~Diane

  7. Great idea! You are too clever!

  8. Those are great ideas, Karianne. Love the window over the window….so original! ! Got a question for you…if those window ideas are equal to “hoops”….then what are “studs” equal to?? I only wear studs, is that why my window coverings are boring? ;)

  9. I visited the Lamps Plus blog; you had wonderful suggestions! Your bedroom is still one of my favorites! Awesome guest post!

  10. I have gold hoops that are my go-to pair of earrings, so I totally understand. :) Today, I couldn’t find daughter #2′s black and silver dangly ones, so I’m without earrings. We’ve GOT to start coordinating our earring-wearing! ;)

    You do realize that CURTAINS are the reason I wanted a sewing machine for Christmas? And now I have even MORE good ideas! Thank you!

  11. I will go check that out. I love hoops, too, although I don’t wear them so much anymore. I hope you have a wonderful rest of the week- xo Diana

  12. I am a major hoop wearer too– even to work out! I wanted to send you a belated congrats on magazine article. You have SUCH a lovely home and should be so proud. I really enjoy reading your blog. As for the drop cloth curtains, it’s kind of ironic that you mention them because I have a long, 15″ tall remnant strip from some I used as a shower curtain and I was thinking about using them as a simple valance in my living room. I am considering this article a sign from the decor gods!

  13. Your huge bedroom is just beautiful, I love the fireplace!

  14. You’ve got style, girlfriend!! I love living in a home that doesn’t need any coverings so I can see nature all the time, but I know I like the detail of something up on the windows, at least to the side. XOXO

  15. So you went for the simple hoops but were mesmerized by the big sparkly bedazzled ones instead?

    :) me

  16. I wear read lipstick almost every day, and silver hoops. They get me through everything. I love what you have done with the drop cloths around your home too. Classic and timeless is a good way to go. Your home will always be gorgeous, and so will those silver hoops!

  17. I seriously love those curtains! I still really want to give them a try for our house.

  18. After looking at your window treatments and crown molding, I conclude I am in *serious* trouble here in Tennessee. My windows have vertical blinds. What? No, no, that’s it, just the blinds. Well, there are the gaps where the cold air was coming in, because the installer did a terrible job, and I sealed them with postal tape. That’s not really decorative, though, is it? So, you think I’m in trouble?
