    Help us decide please...

    Advertisements
    ETA: This is what we are going to do, thanks so much Shakers!!!!









    Our guest bedroom is painted a creamish color. And it just so happens that the furniture is "birch colored" from Ikea, so basically the entire room "matches". Well we decided to take down the closet doors and put up a curtain so that we could have ample space, so the door opens more, etc. So here is our dilemna, since we have two sets of unused curtains, we are reusing what we have....

    So, do you use the tan curtains that match the rest of the room that are tall enough and wide enough to cover the entire closet...

    Or do you use the aqua/sea blue colored ones that bring in some color but are about 1.5 feet too short.

    TIA!

    ETA pics:

    The aqua (will be ironed obviously):

    How short they are:


    The tan:

    The colors of the bookshelves, bed, and desk for comparison:

    The room definitely needs color, but length of curtains is especially important for a closet. How can you hide all your stuff in there if the curtains don't go all the way to the floor?

    I wish the aqua ones were longer, because I would've voted for them. But I agree with the other ladies, how can you hide stuff in the closet with short curtains?
