New Curtains & Valances

Ever feel like you need change? I have been feeling that way lately with small little decor items around the home. I wanted to change my curtains in the family room. I wanted something simple and sophisticated.

My husband and I found these great blackout curtains at Costco. I adore them! We have them in the beige color and there seems to be a hint of gray or blue in them. They are lovely!  

I also wanted valances for some reason. It has been so long since I have had these. I found these white valances at Walmart and they turned out really well. 

The curtains come with two panels so all I had to buy was two for my family room. My husband likes it and so do I. 

I hope that you enjoyed this quick little home decor post. Let me know in the comments section if you like valances or not. Have a great Monday!

  2. very pretty, I love what you have done there. It's funny, I wrote a post about changes around the home today, and said that often it's the smallest change that makes the biggest difference. I really believe that.

    1. Hi Sadie,
