I finally made the trip to Ikea to get some curtains and curtain rods. (Side note: NEVER go to Ikea on a Saturday if you can avoid it. Seriously. Ugh.) Anyway, I purchased the Ritva curtains at 118″ length. They were $34 per pair, very reasonable! I have nine foot ceilings and wanted to be able to hang my curtains high, so the 98″ ones ($24) would be just a few inches too short. I will have to eventually hem these down a bit.  


 I am very happy with the curtains and I think they really bring your eye up. I did not install them yet on the bay window because my dad and I will have to finagle some special way to hang those rods. That will hopefully happen soon, though. 


I got these baskets at Ikea (here) and really like them! I also got the Rens fur rug. Not exactly sure what I will do with it yet but for now it’s hanging out in the basket. 
 I am really liking how the dining room is coming together… but it seems a little too “50 shades of grey” for me at the moment. I need a little color in the room and I want to make it a little less formal.
I also got the curtains up in the living room. The furniture in this room sits really low so I am particularly happy to have the curtains to bring your eye up to the ceiling. I feel like my house just got a pretty dress 🙂

I also have plans for these curtains. I want to do some sort of trim like the ones here:
