The Curtains Behind Richard Armitage


First let me start off by saying that I know what you are all thinking.  You are saying to yourselves that this post is not really about curtains and that I am using that as an excuse to do another post on Richard Armitage.    Well, that is not true.   This post really is about curtains.  Every time I look at photos of this scene from The Vicar of Dibley, I always admire the curtains behind Richard Armitage.   I love the colors and the big flowery design.   If Richard Armitage happens to be the person standing in front of them, what do you want me to do?  It is not my FAULT! 
 
  

To me the curtains bring a sort of bohemian cheeriness to the room.  They also look like something that Cath Kidson would design.  If you are familiar with Cath Kidson's designs then you will know what I meanIf anyone knows who actually did designed these curtains for the Vicar's house I would love to know.  It looks like it could also be designed by Waverly.



I love the wallpaper too.  I would not pick one with a red background, but I love the pattern and, to me, it brings out the curtains.  Most people would probably see the wallpaper and the curtains as clashing, but I think the opposite.  I think it takes a really creative person to come up with this design combination for a room.  I really do find it quite interesting and lovely.

  

Are you still thinking that this post is really about Richard Armitage?  Shame on you...

 

Only Richard can look incredibly sexy while reaching into his pocket.  Er...I mean I love the curtains so much that I may look for some like it to hang in my house for the spring.  

 

Don't you just LOVE those curtains too?



This is a nice closeup of Richard Armitage the curtains.  The sheer white curtains adds a nice touch that tones down the big flowery design. 
 


The curtains are really short though.   I would want a pair that are floor length and YES, I really do love the curtains.  I would love to do something similar in one of the rooms in my own home, only the wallpaper would have a pink background instead of red.

I hope you enjoyed this post about Richard Armitage curtains.

Giggles! Love this! For me, it's the vibrant red design (with dogwood or cheery blossom flowers?) of the wallpaper that really stands out--probably because of the curtains! Snap!

LOL, this is great! I love those, uh, curtains, too in a really shabby chic way. Wow, that sounds dirty, doesn't it?

I think having a full length Richard Armitage would be nice too!
Funny I never really noticed the curtains, but the sitting room on Vicar of Dibley has always been red. It always made me think of Harmony in Red by Matisse. Musy it made me happy when she had Richard Armitage on there!
