Before and After: My Curtain Call

I'd always intended to swap them out for bright white panels, but it took me about 12 months to do so.

Voilà! I picked up a new set of white curtain panels at Pottery Barn, moved a white bistro table by the window, and corralled a couple of turquoise vases there to feed off of my peacock blue walls.
