Before and After: My Curtain Call

When I moved into my apartment over a year ago, we were left with a simple set of brown curtain panels. 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. Now it's a destination where I can sit and have my morning coffee, eat dinner in the evening, or do paperwork. Baby steps . . .
