Xhilaration Ruffle Curtain | Valentina Cirasola | Interior Designer

http://myatozchallenge.com/2012/02/20/welcome-to-my-a-to-z-challenge-2/Welcome to my personal A to Z Challenge on the subject of Home. The goal, in a year time, is to elaborate and dissect topics regarding the Home not as containers of stuff, but as a cocoon for the soul, mind and heart. I will touch on decorations, style, trends, history of home and sometimes technical information.  My challenge is now over!

To find a topic for the letter X was hard, there isn’t anything in home décor starting with X that suited my taste, thus I left it for last to close the series of my challenge Home From A To Z. I found instead a very inexpensive and fun way to cover windows.

The Xhilaration Ruffle Window Panels. They have been designed to add a soft feminine touch to any window with five ample ruffled layers that create a soft texture. They are transparent gauze to let to sunlight in and still show the view of the outside. If privacy is needed, add the light block fabric behind it. Colors are limited, only white, black and rosy color are available. They are available on Ebay for the magic price of $16.99. Ruffle pillows make a nice parure with the ruffle curtains.

Xhilaration Zebra Bed in a bag Twin Set is available in hot pink with zebra print, on Ebay $49.99, or scroll design for  $59.99.  All together it would make a perfect ensemble for a teenage girl room.
There is good décor out there for everyone, every budget and every style. The important thing is to coordinate all the items in a room and to layer textures with an artistic touch. No one will ever know the décor is inexpensive. Your home begins with your story,  tell it in your own fantastic way.

I wrote 26 posts, one for each letter of the alphabet. I had fun in the process and at times I felt the pressure. I hope to have kept you interested and inspired to create a home that is only yours and not a copy of a magazine.

I want to thank Julie Dawn Fox http://myatozchallenge.com/author/juliefox  – a British expat in Portugal for being a gracious host of this wonderful idea of anything from A To Z challenge. Now, I will return to my comfortable one time a week blogging. Ciao,
Valentina

    I like very much what you posted! the pictures – the kind of curtains, pillows and everything… but it’s more that I like it in other apartments, not in my own. I’m not particularly the romantic kind of ruffles-girl. My romance is shown in clear lines and only very discrete decoration. 🙂
    But I definitely do like it! 🙂

      Raani, I am not the romantic type either, but I am sure there are a few girls out there who are romantic and I was trying to offer a little something for every taste while fulfilling my challenge with a Letter X. Thanks for the visit and the comment.
