First step in my own curtains was buying Greek key trim from Turkey through Esty seller kirevi88.
Fabric and curtain rod were found at Ikea - the fabric is MINNA, a heavy duty bleached cotton and the curtain rod is a LUMMIG. Wooden curtain rings from Spotlight.
Here is a sneak peak of the top of one side of curtain now in our living room.
In full, they are almost three metres long and while that makes them a slightly more dramatic backdrop than a wooden venetian blind, they also feel much more homely. Curtains seem more fitting in an older home than a wooden blind, though I still have four others to replace. One thing at a time.
Thanks to Naomi of the Live Breathe Decor blog for bringing these to life. I so appreciated your patience and expert advice. After a month, we're still gazing at them lovingly each time we enter the room and we couldn't have asked for more than that.
