New Drapes!!!

In my quest to find a style that's me, and to finally decorate my condo, I took my sister to JoAnn's to help me pick out some fabric for my drapes. I was so tired of the old school vertical blinds, (which of course the kids are always playing with), and definitely tired of the neutral blah that has become my home. In my other post I started the addition of color with the crate covers. This is my second addition of color - but I have a little dilemma which is in need of your opinions... (and by your, I mean everyone who stumbles upon this silly blog). I'm not sure that these crate covers match the drapes that I've made. It's actually not a huge deal, but I'm just not sure if I should remake the crate covers with another fabric that coordinates better with the drapes, or if I should keep it as is. I'm looking for completely honest opinions, because I'm not one to take offense to negative feedback...and I'm really trying to make my house fun and funky but still coordinating to some degree. Oh, and i did put another cream colored drape (I think it's thai silk fabric or duponi) behind this panel after I took pictures. So, check out the pictures below and let me know what you think.

I love your drapes!! were they easy to make? did you use a pattern or just go for it? I wish I was creative like that!

I love the color! I have been trying to find some for my back door also, I hate those cheap vertical blinds!

ok here is my honest opinion. I love your drapes and the crate covers. You know me and matching colors, I think the pink looks great with the curtains adding a crate cover that matches I think would draw the eye to connect the two (if that makes sence). I think the greens would look fine next to each other if there was some of the drape color in with it. I hope that makes sence. they look great and make me ache to sew something.

I would have had no idea that those were crates underneath those covers. That is genious! I like the way everything looks. I think I understand Katie's comment, and agree with it as well. Also, your kids look so cute decorating the cookies. Sounds super fun and yummy!

Wow, those look great!! I love the color! I heard somewhere that any room can have up to 20 different shades of the same color and still look chic. You have so many options that way!

Love your new drapes! I can appreciate good drapes because I went through 5 different sets before I found a pair that I liked.
