Red Damask Pillow with trim detail

If you’re a fan of color and pattern you’re going to love the curtains and pillows we made for Stacey’s kitchen and family room.

Stacey fell in love with these whimsical home office curtains and wanted to incorporate the same sense of color and whimsy into her new curtains.

Drawing from our inspiration curtains we recreated the fun with a large scale black & white houndstooth, turquoise velvet, gold linen, red damask and 3 trims.

Cafe Curtain Collage

The possibilities and combinations for this style of cafe curtain is limited only by our imaginations.

The basic concept – curtain with a cuff/flap and accented with a small ruffle – can be customized by the length, with trim, double ruffles, a tiny flange and more!

Today’s tutorial shows the steps for a sheer curtain but the concept can be altered to accommodate a lined curtain as well.

Aqua & Ivory Quatrefoil Window Treatments

Charming Living Room

My of my favorite projects is working with clients building a new house. The decision making process can be overwhelming when you’re choosing colors, finishes and fixtures all within a timeline.

Irene did an fantastic job with her choices. She had a distinct vision of how she wanted her new home to look plus she is always a joy to work with!

When it came to designing the window treatments for her open concept living room/kitchen we felt like we hit the jackpot when we found a gorgeous aqua and ivory embroidered quatrefoil.

5 New Window Treatments

Cafe Curtain and Friend

Today, I’m sharing a collection of 5 entirely different window treatments.

1. Cafe Curtain with Contrasting Cuff
The first one is a familiar style you seen several times here on the blog but not one this closely guarded! This little guy startled me everytime I walked around the corner!

This small space, situated just off the kitchen of this home, was so cool but so small it was very hard to get a good angle to show it’s charm. This small space, which includes a curved stone wall and very high ceilings, faces the front of the house. You might call this room a butler’s alcove. Just large enough for a granite counter, under counter storage including a small wine fridge and a very slender upper cabinet.

Navy & Flax Floral Window Treatments (3)

Navy Floral Bathroom Window Treatment & Ottoman

Navy & Flax Floral Window Treatments (3)

I wavered back and forth on how to describe the color of this floral. The fabric itself is called Harris Navy, a linen blend fabric with a traditional Jacobean print, but I wouldn’t call it a true navy.

Prussian Blue? Blue-gray? Steel Blue? Navy-ish?

In Irene’s new home, the wall color is Sea Salt by Sherwin Williams and the glass accent tiles around the master bathtub are in varying shades of gray. When we found this fabric we knew it was the perfect choice for this master bathroom.

Bonus Room Faux Roman Shades and a Semi-Tutorial

Faux Roman Shades

When Holly, a Beyond the Screen Door reader, contacted me several months ago about new window treatments for her bonus room she already has a design in mind as well as fabrics.

She wanted 4 faux roman shade valances and had already purchased three different fabrics to use. Fabrics that happened to include two shower curtains, a table cloth and one sheer curtain panel all found on clearance at Target! I love a challenge!

Houndstooth Roman Shade (7)

Black & White Houndstooth Roman Shade with a Twist

Houndstooth Roman Shade (7)

This little roman shade measures 23.5″ x 23.5 and is one third of three identical windows in an upstairs bedroom set aside specifically for grandsons.

Instead of a traditional flat fold roman shade my client wanted the folds to show when the shade was completely down but also wanted the shades to be functional to allow in light.

The “twist” came about as we brain stormed which method to use to make the shades cute and functional.

Elegant Family Room in Shades of Gray & Ivory

Elegant Gray & Ivory Window Treatments (3)

This home became one of my favorites the moment I walked in the door. Decorated entirely in shades of gray and ivory with wood and metal accents, the living room is stunning!

When I met with Stacy she had a specific vision in mind for her new window treatments.

It was my job to bring that vision to life.
