tuesday tip: shower curtain drapes

I know it's strange to suggest doing anything other than the typical shower curtain installation—one big swath of fabric that completely covers the tub or shower. Why do we do this? It's simple enough to cut your shower liner right down the middle, hang two curtains, and part them to either side...

In any case, I've been loving this look for a long time. I think it's stylish and interesting and a bit dressy and unexpected to treat your shower or tub just like a window, framed by a set of drapes. So, double up your shower curtains, or split one right down the center, and see what happens. And how great would it be if there was an actual window revealed by those curtains to make the view that much better?!

THIS is why I love your blog. Wow, never would have thought of that, and I have never noticed this kind of image...I could do this, but then I'd have to be sure the tub was always clean. ;)
