Another bout with indecision

Just as I was ready to start putting the grosgrain trim on my drapes, I froze. Is it better to use the ribbon as trim or would it look better to leave an inch of the drapes on the edge? I'm leaning towards having an edge.

What do you think? Edge or no edge?


No edge


  1. Oh edge. Absolutely. But now you have to keep it perfectly straight!!

  2. If it were me, I'd leave an edge of curtain showing. Good luck either way!

  3. Oh, this is a tough one.

    Without the edge, I think it looks much more sleek and modern. With the edge, its a little more traditional (but in the best possible way).

    I guess it depends on how you are hanging. If you are using grommets, I'd say no edge. Otherwise, edge.

    Loving the color combo.

  4. My vote's for edge too! (and I don't think I commented on your final yellow choice but I think you picked the right one!)

  5. I'm leaning towards edge.

  6. I love the edge! Can't wait to see the finished look!

  7. I love the edge myself, it gives it some interesting detail. I love your blog by the way, I check it all the time. I'm a twenty something gal living in a condo as well so I'm in the same position as you for the most part. I'd love for you to check out my blog. I've just started it but I'm loving the process already.

  8. I vote edge. Also, just sent you an ornament in my ornament exchange! Thanks for supporting and keeping me inspired!!!!

  9. Edge! Makes it look so pro/custom-made!
