BLACK CURTAINS & STRING LIGHTS

I’m way too obsessed with my workroom at the moment. Okay, I have loved it since we moved to this apartment and I decorated it, but yesterday I changed my curtains to black and added these beautiful string lights to them. There is just something about black curtains that I love! When we moved, I bought summery green leaf curtains, which are amazing, but they were just way too summery for this time of year. Always when I came to my room, I was like “oooh, it’s already autumn now… I want those gone.”

So, it was time to find new curtains. I didn’t want anything too expensive since well; I don’t have much money now. Thank god for sales and coupon codes, and I bought these beautiful things with 16€! When I was searching curtains, I wanted something dark. Like, dark blue maybe? But then it wouldn’t have gone well with other things that I have here, and I wanted lights too, so what else than black then? So I ordered these from Ellos.

Then I wanted the lights! I used to have regular fairy lights coming down to the left curtain, but for autumn/winter, I wanted mooooore! Gladly, Clas Ohlson is killing the light string game this year and oh the sales they have at the moment. I saw these beautiful lights in my city and damn it; they were sold out everywhere. So the asking begins if my friends could get me one or two pairs. And my one friend found these for me! Yayy! One pair was 10€, so it’s not even that expensive! Woopwoop!

Black curtains are probably out there and make the room quite dark in the daylight, but I like it. It looks inviting to me! Do you like them? Would you ever think about adding black curtains to your home or is it a no-no for you? Btw, they were painful to photograph! I just can’t with dark things.
