As many bloggers know, one of the blessings of writing a blog are the people you meet and the friendships you make along the way. Last fall I had the privilege to meet Ryan and her family as a result of Beyond the Screen Door.
Ryan sent me an email after reading my blog and realizing we lived in the same city. She was interested in have window treatments made for her adjoining living room and breakfast room.
Keeping her current furniture in mind, we settled on a color scheme of red, brown and a turquoise but ended up using a slate blue instead. This beautiful shade of blue worked much better with her existing furniture.
For the breakfast room windows we decided on a stationary valance that mimics a loose roman shade complete with double ruffles and a ribbon fringe. Ryan has four young children and we decided using a valance for this large window was the best option.
Ryan fell in love with the idea of using long panels with an attached valance for the window treatment for the living. With the two rooms adjoining we wanted a similar feel in the fabrics but not the style. Ryan’s inspiration were the window treatments from this living room and kitchen.
The same brown and blue fabrics were used on both window treatments. A red cheetah was used for the ruffle on the breakfast room valance while a red and gold dot with a brown and blue tassel fringe finished off the living room panels.
I truly do count it a privilege and a blessing to meet so many wonderful people of as result of this blog. Ryan and her precious family captured my heart immediately!
