How to Paint a Harlequin Diamond Wall (4)

How to Paint a Harlequin Diamond Wall

Red Harlequin DiamondsWhen Emily was building her new home she began gathering inspiration pics and ideas she hoped to incorporate into her new home.

One of those inspiration pics was the above photo that she saved to her phone after stumbling across it on Pinterest. Later she showed the photo to her friend Shannon mentioning she’d like to have something similar painted in her kitchen.
It just so happened that Shannon knew me, knew about Beyond the Screen Door and the rest…as they say…is history!

If you follow along on Instagram or Facebook you may recognize this project!

Lakehouse Kitchen (10)

Imagine this bright and cheerful kitchen stuck in a 70’s timewarp.

Or maybe you have a kitchen window reminiscent of the one above?

Then I imagine you agree with me.

But I digress.

This post isn’t about Builders it about these adorable, simply elegant, curtains!

Kitchen Valance

Cinnamon Swirl Kitchen Valance

Kitchen ValanceWhile writing this post, I found myself insanely focused on what to call this valance.

It’s not a balloon valance, though it sort of resembles one.
It’s not a roman shade, though it appears it could be functional.
A Loose Fold Stationary Roman Shade

On the other hand…
It’s droopy and rufflely.
Has ooodles of ribbon fringe and charm so it needs a pretty name.
The AnnaMarie  

Or maybe The Sophie. Emmaline? How about Katherine?
I know…The Anna Katherine! I have a cousin named Anna Katherine. Always thought that was a pretty name.
