I will try and put up a picture of my bare dining room. That sort of thing is usually too technologically advanced for my old computer.

This is hard because there is quite a bit of a wall between the windows. Three windows. Two strips of wall between them.

The two styles I have thought of so far (and I was lucky to find pictures of the images I had in my head so I could show you) are:

Bay03 here - http://www.expressiondecor.com/designdirectory/baywindows.htm
(this is more of what thwap wants), and

the big picture here - http://www.hutchal.clara.net/curtains/style2.htm (with some variation, especially for the top part).

the first pic in the second link is exactly what I was talking about.

The bay03 in the first link is lovely too.

Gosh! Did you guys make those yourselves? They look great.

I like the colour you've painted the room, too.

Thanks.

We picked out the material and had a professional make 'em.

They're going to match the swivelly-swervy dining set we're getting.

And eph picked out the colours for the walls.  I have an indifferent colour sense.

Well, I love intense colours too. Maybe you need a room like that -- nice high ceilings, trad features and fixtures -- to carry off intense colours, but I'm inclined to use them on my much tinier rooms anyway. Some of my sniffy visitors get a bit twitchy when I show them the colours I'm going to use -- those would be the people terminally addicted to "resale off-white."   :wink:

Absolutely! I'm certainly going to in my little house. Right now, everything's white, and I think they did that because it was thought that it would make it look larger. But Leopold and I have antique, dark, heavy furniture which when combined with white walls looks rather stern. Like, all we need is a large, dark cross on the wall and perhaps some framed black & white photographs of relatives - all frowning of course.

I'm inclined to do something similar to what my MIL did with this room and a few others (she has a fire engine red bathroom, for e.g.). Bright walls, everything filled up with art (luckily we're inheriting some nice bright art, and both Leopold and I paint). I don't know if we'd go so far as to apeing her mural but I like that idea, too. And it's all within a very small house. (1,000 square feet just like ours.) If it makes people sniff, sobeit. You're not doing it for them after all, eh? ;)

Hey, what gives?! Just because we are hippie radical sock-mismatching anarchists and atheists doesn't mean we can't have good taste in curtains. Pot smokers can be fancy-schmany too, ya know. Our groovy space will be up in the attic. Beaded curtains, psychedelic furniture and all that. :)  ... when we have the moolah, of course.

Your curtains are beautiful eph-the wall colour is rich too.

Beaded curtains are cool.  I've got 2 sets of 'em, brought over from the old place.

I was actually hoping for something just slightly less rich with the wall colour, but oh well, I don't mind this terribly. Our living room is a creamy, tiramisu colour. I am perfectly happy with that.
