Curtains are an important part of a house, in my opinion. I don't think I notice if houses don't have curtains, but I definitely noticed that my windows lacked curtains and it was starting to get to me. So yesterday I took my babysitting and birthday money and went curtain shopping!

I didn't buy these, but found them in the pile of things from the old apartment! I think they used to be in the kitchen before I found the current curtains (a coffee theme!) and hung them up. I didn't take a picture of those though.
Anyway! These matched the office walls so well that I couldn't reason spending money on another set of curtains to put in there.

Don't they look nice? We were lucky in that the previous owners left a lot of curtain rods for us! I'm thrilled because that saves me having to buy them myself!

In the guest room I had an idea of what I wanted, but I was having a hard time finding curtains in the colors that I wanted. At least that was the case until I looked at the kids section in Bed Bath and Beyond curtains! Score!

They match so well, and I think they look pretty good too! I was considering getting a sheer curtain as well, but ran out of money this time around. Anyway, at this point I think they look pretty good!

I had a few ideas for the bedroom, but I wasn't sure what I could afford until I actually went shopping. I settled on this for our bedroom, and I'm really happy with it. I wanted to be happy with the master bedroom because I knew those were the ones we'd be looking at most often!

After I got them home and up, I felt like they are missing something...but I'm not sure what. The issue is that the window is so high up from the floor, so I feel like sheer curtains wouldn't look right in there. I think I will ask my mom when she comes to visit next week.

I like our living room curtains, but I would like to replace them at some point. However, with such a big window in the living room and these curtains already here from the townhouse, I guess we will live with them for now!

I got sick of the empty window, so I hung the curtains up last week. After a couple days of looking at them though, I realized that they needed something to hold them back. So, when I was at Bed Bath and Beyond I was looking at tie backs, but then I found these!

I love the way they look, and, best of all, they were on clearance! I was so excited that I bought two sets of them because they were only $4.99 each! So why not?

What do you think about my new curtains? Are you sick of house decorating updates yet??
