Ikat or Platinum?

Hope everyone had a great weekend. Mine was great until my daughter broke the blinds on this window. But for the longest my husband has wanted to take them down and just have panels up. There were no panels up on this window until Sunday evening. I had a hard time deciding which panel to purchase, because after all I am not buying for the current, but for what I want it to look like. Panels for a size 108 window don't come at 19.99 so I have to choose wisely. I decided to bring one of each home. The platinum, and the Ikat. Now in the package my husband was totally for the platinum, he said the Ikat was to busy. Then once it was up, his mind was changed. He then asked me which one I liked, and I said. I don't know. I am going to ask my

READERS for help!

Def Ikat! I cant see the rest of the items in the room but if there are no other dominating patterns my vote is def for the Ikat curtains!

I say go with the Ikat. It also goes with the couch(based on the pic), plus i love how it contrasts against the wood floor and the mid century credenza.

I love the Ikat! The platinum is nice but the Ikat has something special.

I like the Ikat! Especially if you're going to paint the walls a more neutral color.

Can't wait to see what you decide.

I vote Ikat. It adds texture to the room and gives the window visual interest.

if I were going by the sample pics I'd say the grey ones but the ikat looks SO much better in your house.

Ikat - definitely!! The others just kind of blend in to the walls, but the Ikat has a fun point of interest!

I am leaning towards the Ikat, with what I can see of the room that add a nice pop of neutral color and the pattern draws your eye in. Ikat for me!!!
