I purged yesterday. I took almost everything off the walls, patched, painted. I cleaned and anything I don't love went in the barn. I'm really not a hoarder/collector. I tend to think of my house like I do my paintings. My ideas/ideals are abstract and pared down. I like worn things with history but with each thing having some space to breath. Each thing has impact on it's own or at least in small groups. And it's just as hard to get where I want to go with my living space as it is to put down on paper or canvas what I have in my head. I'm thinking a lot about curtains/drapes right now as a starting point for my rooms. I want something that falls to the floor but not something overpowering. I don't want them to be too dark and I want them to be a source of color and pattern in the room. Because everything I own is plain, really. I want gorgeous fabric, maybe vintage. Any ideas? I'm not opposed to buying them made or buying the fabric and making them myself.
