cheap(er) chic home solution: curtain call

Do you have a rental that you aren't allowed to paint, trying to compartmentalize the spaces in a loft or just looking for a fun and cheap way to brighten up your room but not ready to commit to that pomegranate red just yet? Curtains used in an unconventional are a great way to achieve all these goals. They can separate rooms effortlessly and are such a fun and whimsical wall treatment!

Would you consider or have you used curtains in your home for purposes other than window dressing?

I love this idea...I usually wouldn't lean towards curtains but if they looked the way they do in these pictures...then I sure would!

oh no, I'm afraid I couldn't use curtains to separate rooms. I have 2 boys! do you know what do restless boys do with your decoration? lol!

I've considered it many times for a sink area attached to my master bedroom. What I'd really like to do is relocate the sink but until then, a curtain would help tremendously I think.

We have had to do this in a corner of the kitchen. I hate it. Prefer doors but it is only for now. Your options make it seem more palatable...

Love love love those striped ones! My kitchen is in desperate need of some window treatments--I'm thinking striped roman shades...something simple that will still provide a bit of pattern and texture.

i definitely like the idea of using a curtain as a partition for a bed, it's kind of romantic.
