H&M Bookcase curtains

20130511-105451.jpg

I bought 3 of these gorgeous curtains a few months ago for my daughters bedroom. She’s seventeen, like the rough luxe look and has her bedroom in the attic. So the plan for her room refresh was to go grey (ever since we painted the hallway in Farrow& Ball down pipe, it’s become a family favourite) and introduce some more grown- up elements to the space. So the feel is one room apartment living rather than teenager living at home.

With the recent popularity of the rough luxe look and high street stores getting in on the action, it’s made it a much more realistic look to pull off on a small budget (which is just as well)…

And so to these amazing curtains from H&M. I’ve been really into a lot of the Homeware range products from H&M since it first launched. Gorgeous linen bedding, tablecloths, curtains, and some great storage baskets too. The curtains look fabulous! The great thing about them is how versatile they can be. In this case I’ve been altering one of the curtains for use as a block out curtain for the large skylight window in the room (so time for me to get the dust off the sewing machine and find a bloody measuring tape!). The other two curtains are going to be used to conceal a D.I.Y. Wardrobe. Not a fan of wardrobes (mostly because that calls for the effort to actually put things on hangers) she’s decided she wants shelving with storage baskets to keep her clothes in. Before you start wondering where she will hang her dresses, let me just say she’s a skinny jeans and converse girl. I’m not convinced the clothes will ALWAYS be tidy in said storage so the curtains are for those emergency times – pull them across for an instant tidy!
