Going Sideways: Horizontal Stripe Curtains

Ever since I laid eyes upon these awesome horizontally striped curtains made by the design diva Jenny at Little Green Notebook, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about where I can replicate the dramatic look.

After doing some investigation, I have realized how hard it is to find horizontally striped fabric.  Jenny took vertical striped fabric and sewed two pieces together to create the railroad stripes.  I love this look!

Also inspired by Jenny, the ever-resourceful Camila over at High-Heeled Foot in the Door actually spray painted bright yellow stripes on to a pair of white Ikea panels.  I love how this turned out!

Here are some other horizontal stripe curtain eye candy:

I love the tailored, but dramatic look of the horizontal striped curtains, don’t you?!

So, I am thinking about exploring these beauties further and maybe attempting to make some brown and white horizontal stripe panels for the two windows in my family room.  The picture below was taken last summer for another post.  What do you think?  Ambitious, no?

My only problem is that I can’t seem to find any brown and white, wide stripe fabric (even vertical stripes!).  All you design gurus out there, any source ideas?
