In my incredibly slow quest to “finish” my cottage I’ve had a reoccurring, often late at night, nagging thought that I should add cornices over my living room windows. I love the way the simple white Ikea curtains look with the added black grosgrain trim, but the cheap Ikea hardware does not make me very happy. So my thought is I have two options: 1) Invest in nicer hardware or 2) cover up that hardware with matching cornice boards.
I like the clean tailored look
It would make my windows seem higher
I’d have to make it. Uggg.
Too busy? / Stuffy?
Here are a few of my favorite rooms with matching trimmed cornices and curtains…
That last one is pretty fancypants, right?
PS- I now want to paint my bedroom black.
SO WHAT SAY YOU, YAY OR NAY TO THE CORNICE?
And I didn’t show any shapely cornices… just doesn’t feel right in my space.
