Oh boy! Oh baby! Oh baby boy! Today we debut a new nursery on Sew4Home. Our original Stylish Baby Nursery series remains one of the most popular on the site, but we knew it was time for another look at baby's room. This new series is sponsored by our good friends at Michael Miller Fabrics and is created using their new Color Story concept. We chose the Citron-Gray Color Story for our modern baby boy nursery. It is a wonderfully happy yet soothing palette, and the sleek geometric shapes of the motifs create a trendy, upscale look that mom and dad will appreciate as much as baby. Because, let's face it, who's really lookin' at all those pretty pieces at 2:00 in the morning! We will showcase eight projects over the next several weeks, starting with today's full-length panel curtains, which feature our favorite plastic grommets for easy hanging.

"Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!" We all have those areas of the house we'd prefer to keep from view. Maybe it's a cluttered corner, a secret sitting area or even your sewing and crafting space! We designed our room divider curtains as slim panels, which can be used on a portable frame, like the one we built, or hung by tension rod in a doorway. Lined with silky acetate, they have a wonderful drape and lightly sway with the lightest gypsy breeze.

Pretty curtains softly billowing in the breeze of an open window are a sure sign of summer. You can almost smell the honeysuckle, can't you? Our guest room curtain panels are made from two simple width-of-fabric cuts with a flange accenting their seam. Long, loopy tie-backs let you pull your curtains off to the side or cinch them in the middle with a generous bow as we did. We also show you a fast and easy way to handle the lining.

Curtain panels are a perfect beginner project. They're fast, super simple, and you get a great sense of satisfaction when you hang them up and instantly transform your window from plain and boring to pretty and bright. Our Retro Fun curtains combine two great vintage fabrics from Barbara Jones' Simply Sweet collection plus the ultimate retro touch: red gingham bows. Gingham and polka dots and pretty flowers... it's such a happy combination, I feel like breaking into a few stanzas of Perry Como's 1951 classic Zing Zing Zoom Zoom . Who wants to sing along??

Nature Brights Kitchen: Tab-Top Panel Curtains with Button Accents

To be perfectly honest, I hate to cover up my windows. Staring out into the world is one of my favorite pastimes. But, I also realize you need a little privacy and some protection from the sun; plus, the softness of curtains and drapes adds a distinct coziness to a room. For our Nature Brights Kitchen, we chose a design that captures the freshness of a spring day and sweeps it into the room. In true Sew4Home fashion, our tab-top curtains are easy to make. Clever seaming gives you fully lined, finished panels with no visible stitching on the sides.

Stylish Baby Nursery: Flowery Curtains & Striped Valance

Curtains with a matching valance are the perfect start ... or finish to any room decor. As the Big Lebowski would say, 'They really tie the room together.' The valance is also a great way to add a dramatic dash of color or pattern in your room decor, and because the valance is narrow, you can accomplish this without making the room look too busy.
