My boyfriend and I moved into our new condo at the end of January yet despite the motivation that the original 80s mauve/brown/white scheme gave me to redecorate ASAP, the planned changes have been moving along a bit more slowly than planned. I am, for better or worse, incredibly picky when it comes to interior design.
Last week however I had finally had enough of the slow progress and decided that at minimum, my poor curtains (purchased a month ago) needed a home over our windows within the next week. Unfortunately the search for affordable curtain rods for all 11 windows has been a long and frustrating one. Fortunately, the cure for "impossible to find a reasonably priced option in montreal" is usually a hop over the border to the US so this weekend, while home for the Easter holiday, I finally found an affordable and attractive option in Vermont.
Although still bare, my living room is now a beautiful and airy clean slate for future decor.

Since our ceilings are only 8ft tall, I chose tab curtains and installed the rods close to the ceiling to create long columns of fabric and give the windows/walls an elongating effect. As our windows are narrow, I also left about 8 inches of rod on either side of the window frame so the window is not hidden when the curtains are open.
