The Drafty Door Solution

front doors with curtains

I’ve had this idea lingering in my head for a while.  Now, don’t make fun of me, but I actually got the idea from the movie, Taken.  Have you guys seen it? I actually really like the movie, but anyway, there was a scene where the main character goes to the home of a former co-worker and the thing I remember most from the scene is that there were heavy, velvet drapes across the inside of the door. I thought it was just so luxe looking that it stuck with me.  Plus, this would really help with the draftiness of winter.

So I’ve been sitting on this idea and scouring through sites that have tons of curtain styles, textures, and fabrics.  I think for my purposes they have to be solid – no patterns in my future, and maybe a raw silk or velvet with a bit of a break and puddle.

But please weigh in – do you like this look? Does it distract from the beauty of a foyer?  I’m all about keeping things simple and not fussy, so what do you think?  Fussy?  or Fabulous?
