Who knew that buying a house didn't end with buying a house... it involves toothbrush holders and toilet brushes and laundry hampers and blinds and curtains and mini garbage bins for the loo and kitchen islands and dining tables and .... lots of stuff. Stuff that involves going to 20 different shops because you can't find the right one!!!!! Our apartment seemed full. Our house seems empty and somewhat pathetic :)

Right now I'm trying to decide on curtains that both Ben and I will like. He's not available to go to the shop so I keep bringing them home and hanging them up for him to veto... we're on curtains number 4 and 5, let's keep our fingers crossed! What I have realized is that I'm going to have to sew blackout material on the back of these fashion curtains because they're much more sheer then they look in the shop! Even the ones that are lined! (oh, and while I"m on that, why line a dark brown curtain in white fabric, it totally discolours the curtain when the light shines through it, making it look purple). I think they'll look better at night. Now hanging:

I love the brown ones, as I like the contrast against the walls. The green/blue ones fade into the walls quite a bit.

I can't wait until I can decorate my first house...it another four years or so.

I like the brown too. Same reasons as SD.

Have you found any good home decorating blogs?

Liana - I'm on pinterest and have found some really nice stuff there.

Both curtains were rejected by Ben so back to the drawing board. Our walls are actually beige so the photos aren't accurate to our home but we're trying to introduce blue as an accent colour so maybe different blue ones would be good.

Chiming in late, but the blue. If Ben would ever agree to them.
