I really hate shopping for curtains.
There is just simply nothing about it I enjoy.
If I find a pattern or color I like, I hate the material.
If I find a material I like, I hate the pattern or color.
No matter where I’m shopping, they always seem to be one panel short of however many I need.
Oh, and did I mention they’re expensive?
So yeah. Not my favorite part of outfitting a home.
Ever since getting the bedroom painted, I have been on the hunt for new curtains to hang in the dining room. I realize that doesn’t sound like it makes a whole lot of sense BUT I’ve always wanted something a little different in the dining room, and I really wanted to hang the dining room curtains in the bedroom.
Now it’s all coming together, right?
I wanted something with a little contrast and pattern, but everything I found/tried was too bold, too busy, too not my style and even though there were a few I really liked, I knew I would tire of them too soon. And then I stumbled upon these curtains from World Market.
Perfect color, perfect price, perfect material, perfect pattern.

You’re probably thinking, but they look the same!
The pictures don’t really do them justice. The stripes are very subtle, so if I didn’t point it out, you may not even notice they’re different – but in person they add just the right amount of contrast to the white walls.
You’ll just have to take my word for it. 😉
The material is super soft – SUPER soft – and has the most gorgeous drape to it. They definitely look and feel like they should cost two to three times more than they do.
Plus they filter the light during the day and yet still provide privacy at night. A win all the way around!
I love that the stripes add a bit of interest, but that they’re still neutral enough to blend with anything I choose to do in this room. They are definitely a go with anything and everything choice.
I’m even entertaining the idea of adding them to the living room…
So what do you think of my choice in new curtains?
