Anthropologie Swatch Book curtains

Funky curtains interior design blog ideasInterior designers notebook curtains

When you’re decorating a room, and changing an interior design scheme, you’ll typically find yourself collecting together a selection of different colour and pattern swatches of fabric, wallpaper, paint or carpet. Sometimes it can be hard to whittle them down and decide on one or two firm favourites to use and it seems sad to discard the others.

That’s one of the reasons why we like these Swatch Book curtains, as they pay homage to all the lovely swatch card colours and designs you collect during an interior design project!

Designed to look like the fabric remnants and markings from a designer’s notebook, the curtains feature vertically arranged swatches of colour and pattern, interspersed with scribbled notes about the type of fabrics each swatch is made from, the sizes and costs. They look effective when viewed from a distance, but are fascinating to look at close up, as you’ve got all the notes to read.

The Swatch Book curtains are made from a mix of cotton, linen, silk and polyester and finished with a contemporary tab top. They’re available in two drop lengths – 213cm or 244cm – and are priced from £128 from Anthropologie.

Brim full of Christmas ideas: blog round-up

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

It’s been a bit of a mad week, but we’re beginning to wind down for Christmas now. If you’re in the throes of getting ready for Christmas, whether decorating your home, wrapping presents or making and baking delicious food, then here are some great links and ideas from the blogosphere that we’ve rounded up to help inspire you!

Christmas Home Decorating

If you’ve had enough of shopping for Christmas decorations, then A Thrifty Mrs has a great post on making simple Christmas decorations with oranges.

For ideas on how to style your Christmas table or Christmas tree, these two videos from Pippa Jameson could help.

There are also more table ideas over at Freshome, where they’ve put together some creative centrepieces.

Find out how you can make a Christmas wreath, from this post on Parentdish.

Make It and Mend It have a great step-by-step guide to making curlicue salt dough decorations for your Christmas tree.

And for some super easy decorations, how about this cute snowman idea from Frangipani Decor.

Christmas Food & Drink

The wonderful Chocolate Orange has become a big of a Christmas staple, but if you fancy being creative with yours, then there’s a great recipe on Domestic Sluttery for chocolate orange cookies.

You’ll find lots of great food ideas on Rosa’s Yummy Yums Christmas food ideas post.

For Christmas party drinks, Apartment Therapy have some lovely cocktail ideas.

If you fancy doing something different with potatoes over the Christmas holidays, then Hygge Nook suggests herby parmentier potatoes.

Christmas Wrapping

If you’re looking for inspiration and help to get you through all your Christmas present wrapping (we need it!), then have a look at Wee Birdy, where you can download a whole load of free lovely red and blue Christmas gift tags.

There are more nice holiday tags to be found on Design Sponge and Patchwork Harmony has also written a blog post about Finishing Touches for present wrapping.
