Giraffe Heaven

The Intouchables (2011) - Apartment in the Paris projects

Wow, just watched The Intouchables and loved it.  It is a bro-comedy (my favorite genre), but smart too.  

Any who, the reason for posting this picture is that my grandmother has collected giraffes for much of her life, and her home is a giraffe shrine.  Whenever I see anything with a giraffe on it, I think of her (see curtains above).

Grandma, when you read this, send me some pictures of your collection.

Chasing Curtain Panels

These curtains are fantastic.  I love the large bold print, in dusty colors.  I love how the print changes, so each fold seems to be made of a different piece of fabric, while still being cohesive.  These would look elegant in a formal parlor or fresh in a child's nursery.  Good design looks good anywhere.

I have been looking for curtains a lot lately, and Anthropologie does an outstanding job.  They make curtains that are textured, livable, and rich.  But they are soooooo expensive.
