Can I just say that I am as giddy as all outdoors that the one and only

Tommy Smythe

Loves the work that I put into my space!

I wanted his opinion really bad, and crossed my fingers for a reply.  Not every designer is able to reply to  online comments, so I am just happy that he took the time to communicate back. I respect his opinion, and absolutely adore his presence as the “side kick” along side of Sarah Richardson.

Now on to his advice. He said a colored drape would be nice, but only if it doesn't steal away from the rug.  So thinking caps ON!


Below are some options that I put together a while back.




Also a big thanks to the Facebookers on his page that were kind enough to “like”, and leave nice comments as well. Thanks to all of you that put a smile on my face.

I would be doing a merengue dance if I were you :). I love the blue curtains! Nice addition of color that doesn't take away from the rest of the room. LOVE IT!

I'd be happy dancing too. In fact I think I would be happy dancing if I owned that fabulous chevron rug of yours full stop!

I can see how you are torn on the two drape options. I can't even pick one. They both would like nice.

Hey Tam,

I personally do not like the rug. But you do and that's all that matters!

I like the blue colored drapes best with the room.

Congrats on getting a co-sign by a fav designer of yours! I know it made your day!

Love the room, and love the blue drapes!

I would def go for the blue curtains. They are soft and pretty and don't steal focus from the rest of the room at all. Great job!

As my girl RZ would say "Shut the front door!" How amazing! I would be cheesing for days if I received such a compliment.

I don't know who Tommy Smythe is, but I trust that he's awesome and that you are feeling AWESOME right now!! Linda Wary emailed me once to say that my house is inspiring, and I almost dropped dead from excitement.

That is so exciting and special. I like the blue as well.
