A Cluttered Life: Middle-Class Abundance

posted by: anele on 03.17.2014 at 05:13 pm in Home Decorating & Design Forum

I would be interested in seeing how much this applies to people here who might otherwise be described this way (middle class, 2 incomes, with children).
My guess? Because the people on this forum are more focused on design than the average person, I think it is less likely to be true. In my case, we are a one-income family, so maybe we don't fit the mold from the outset anyway.

Parts 2 and 3 are available on the side bar or as you watch the video.

Here is a link that might be useful: Part I: A Cluttered Life

Needing a curtain rod that's at least 17 feet long

posted by: Cook4 on 01.23.2012 at 03:11 pm in Home Decorating & Design Forum

I'm looking for an extra long curtain rod, at least 17' long and I would prefer something 18' long. This will be covering a quad sliding door along the back of our new home. The sliding glass door/windows are 16' wide.

I've found two companies online that offer a curtain rod this wide. Anyone ever used Highland Forge or Paso Robles Ironworks? Or have another suggestion? I found 2" curtain rods at Hobby Lobby, but the rods are only 8' long. I could connect two 8' rods, but that doesn't give me any stacking area for the curtains when the curtains are pushed back.

The Highland Forge and Paso Robles products would only have to have one support bracket in the center, so pulling the curtains/drapes shut would not be a problem. The curtains will hang on rings.

The "look" I'm going for is mostly transitional with clean lines.

Any suggestions?
