There was nothing wrong with the plain silk curtains in Maegan’s ultra-feminine home office (which we profiled as a Tech Tour last year). But, when she spotted the luxe tassled curtains in Carrie’s apartment while watching old episodes of Sex and the City, she knew she could recreate the look for less.

All it took was a few yards of elegant black tassel trim — as well as a few hours of patient pinning and hand-stitching — to really upgrade this window treatment. I love how the pop of black helps offset the white on white, and really adds the feel of framing to the window bench. This simple project would work really well in the bedroom, too, especially for budget curtains that need a punch of panache.
