Sneak Peek

Hi Everyone.  Happy Friday and Happy Weekend.

I thought I would show you a little peek into the new living room at JCC#4 by showing you the pretty drapes. 

Let me share with you the lovely and talented lady on Etsy that made my drapery panels.  

Her name is Shana Asmus and 
her Etsy is called Asmus Home Interiors.  

If you click Here  or on her site name above it will take you right to her Etsy Shop.  

I did not receive any compensation for this just like to share wonderful and talented women I meet that have done beautiful work for me.

My walls are in Behr Pixel White.  It is one of the million whites you can choose. 
It is white with a touch of gray. 
We painted all the trim in Ultra White.

I have to admit that this neutral girl is enjoying bringing in pattern and blue to my whites!

This is the pattern of the fabric.
I bought what Shana said she needed to make the panels and had the fabric sent right to her. 
Saved on shipping.
Shana then made these pretty curtain panels.  Shana does a beautiful job.
Seriously if you need drapes, pillows, shower curtain, etc. visit her Etsy site
You can send her your own fabric or pick from the many beautiful fabrics she has in stock.

There is my little peek into the new living room.

I like the cottage feel these drapes give to the living room. 
I am taking baby steps with adding color to my neutral world. 
So far so good!
 I am embracing touches of the blue.

I am still waiting on a few things to finish up this room. 
Then I will have the full reveal.

Don't you hate waiting for things to arrive that you have ordered? 
I tell ya I have no patience for waiting!

Happy Friday and have a wonderful Weekend.
