Tara’s Kitchen Cafe Curtains

Kitchen Cafe Curtain

I think this sweet little, kitchen cafe curtain has turned out to be one of my all time favorites.

But then again, so many of the window treatments I make and especially the ones in Tara’s home have been my favorite at one time. They’re like songs. This one is my current favorite.

Cafe Curtain Fabrics

It all started with these fabrics. A scrumptious chartruese velvet that I LOVE, an oatmeal colored sheer with a linen-like weave (the same fabric we used for this window treatment), a heavier weight brocade in taupe & green and a gorgeous beaded fringe that we loved so much we waited 2 months while it was on backorder.

Here you can see how the breakfast room is situated to the rest of the kitchen. The kitchen is open and faces the family room which is just off to the right in this photo.

Sheer Cafe Curtain with Cuff and Ruffle

The unlined sheer forms the body of the cafe curtain. The patterned brocade was used to make a 6″ cuff with a 2.5″ velvet ruffle along the lower edge.

The beaded trim was then top stitched onto the cuff.


My sister, Sheri, took these pictures of our welcoming committee.

Meet Henry. Or is it Oliver? I never can tell them apart.

Greeters (2)

Henry and Oliver. The English Mastiff Welcoming Committee. Not sure where Nutmeg is. She’s the yellow lab. They were there to greet me each day. You can just image my thoughts on meeting these guys for the first time. :)

It’s so handy having a sister/photography assistant. It’s rare that I’m ever actually in a picture! It was so fun to have her with me that day.

Kitchen Cafe Curtains

I think you can see why this is curtain is one of my favorites. Linen (or at least linen-like), velvet (and green velvet at that) and a cafe curtain. I love all three!

The finishing touch to a gorgeous kitchen.

Personally, I think these would look amazing in my own kitchen. I’m seriously tempted to clone them. :)
