1. Thank you so much for links to products! Window treatments are on my to-do list for our home. I like the look of clips – so it seems you can use them even on the linen curtains you have that are meant to slide through the rod? Did you just eye ball the spacing? What color curtain would you recommend with BM Simply White and Paper White walls? Thank you!

  2. Love your style. Can you tell me about your floors. Wood or tile? Brand and style would be great. Thank you very much. Keep up the good work!

    Hi Nina,
    LOVE your postings. Very glad I found you. Am going to copy most all of your window treatments but promise to give creative credit to you.
    Are your drapes white or off white?
    Just about to order them and realized did not know which color.
    BTW, we just put in floors much like yours! Random width and length, varied dark and medium hickory in color. Quite a change from the medium oak ‘gunstock’ we had removed.

  4. Hi Nina, do you recommend hemming your curtains a certain way? (I’ve heard of alternatives to sewing but not sure how well they work!)

    1. Nina Hendrick says:

      Hi Jess, I’m really not the best authority on this! My husband actually hemmed our curtains. I’m hopeless at sewing. I have heard great things about hem tape, but I’ve never successfully accomplished it.

    1. Nina Hendrick says:

      They were from Ikea, but I’ve been using these lately!

  8. Hi Nina

    Could you tell me where to find the curtain rods in the picture?

    1. They were from Ikea!

  10. Hello! Did you roll your shades forward or backwards? I can’t seem to get the same look rolling forward as instructed.

    Also, the shades in your kitchen appear to have a valance? Are those shades different? I thought that you had mentioned that these were the shades that you used mostly throughout your home (with the exception of the Home Depot style)!

  11. Hello! Love the bamboo shades. Noticed when I went to purchase the mounting hardware that she’s is black. I do not notice the black in your pictures. Did you she something different to hang yours?

    1. Hi Amie, My shades came with stainless hardware, but they may have changed the design since then. They are about 5 years old.

  12. Can you tell me the name of the IKEA curtain panels you suggest?

    1. Hi Libby,

      They are the VIVAN panels.

  13. Hi – I LOVE what you have done with your windows in this post – especially the price! When I went to Amazon to order the curtains, many of the reviews say the curtains are more of an off white, but they look pretty white in your photos. I need them for a dark grey bedroom where we are doing white accents. Any thoughts on whether these will work or look too creamy? Thanks so much!!

    1. They are definitely a bit on the cream size- if you are putting them up against a stark white it will be noticeable. All of my “whites” are actually off-white, so that may be throwing off the perspective!

  14. What color paint is on the walls?

    1. Hi, Daneen! It’a Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray.

  16. Hazel Owens says:

    I think the window treatments you’ve come up with are fantastic! The bamboo roll up shade complements the white drapes nicely. It’s a great way to add a custom look to your house. Thanks for the window-decorating inspiration!

  17. Good Afternoon Nina,

    You have finally solved my delima regarding shades and curtains for the windows. I have bought blue material, white material and heaven knows what else trying to decide what to do with my windows. Thank you so much for your post. I’ve just discovered your site and have looked around a bit, I am certain I’ll return. Keep up the great work Nina!
