Decorating My Home- Master Bedroom

Yes!  Finally finished my master bedroom curtains, valances & pillow covers.  They remind me of a rich, tropical resort.  I again used the Sew 4 Home lined-tab-top panel tutorial for the panels. Other tutorials I visited for inspiration were this one from 7 Layer Studio and this one from Sew 4 Home. For the buttons, I used assorted black & gold vintage buttons.  The valances are fully-lined and the pillows and tie-backs are from the same material.  The pillows are a simple envelope-back for washing & changing.  My friend, Denise at Whimsy Couture has a free tutorial here for pillow covers. I'm really happy with them!  This weekend I'm working at hanging pictures & mirrors then it's on to the kids' rooms.

Your curtians are beautiful, I looove that you used vintage buttons on your tabs, I did this a few years ago with tab curtians also, the buttons are my fave part!

Good job. I like the lush tropical look with out the "Florida room" colors. Hot pink, aqua and orange aren't very restful.

Wow. What a beautiful job you did on your draperies and pillows. You should be very pleased. I particularly love the vintage buttons you used for the tabs. I need to get a sewing machine. :(
