When Rex and I first moved to Vegas, I thought that the window in our room looked painfully bare. I couldn't find any curtains that I liked, so I decided to make some. I picked a fabric that matched our comforter, but I was worried that it might be a little bit too "matchy matchy." Rex assured me that it looked fine, though, either because it really looked fine or because he wanted me to stop talking about curtains (or maybe a little bit of both). I like how they turned out, but I've always wondered about how an interior design expert would react to my homemade match-the-bed-exactly curtains. I was so happy when I read THIS in my home ec book today:
"Nothing could be lovelier in any bedroom than the use of matching fabric for the bedspread and draperies."
Whoo hoooooo! Did you hear that, naysayers? "Nothing could be lovelier!" It says it right there in black and white on page 14. So ha - my bedroom has achieved maximum loveliness due to a rule I followed before I even knew it was a rule! Sometimes it's nice to read about something that I did right, since that doesn't happen very often in these books. :-)
