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.
When 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.

Occasionally, when working with a client I get the opportunity to step away from fabric, pick up a paint brush and create artwork. You may remember this piece, one of the first pieces I shared here on the blog.
Most recently, while working on an office update, I was able to create two contemporary pieces for the IPHC Discipleship Ministries Department where my daughter Kaleigh works.
Working with an existing red leather sofa as inspiration, I chose a color scheme of gray, red and black including elements of dark wood and metal. A warm contemporary feel with a touch of industrial.
Over the past few years, as the term Home Staging has become a household word, we’ve all come to realize just how important this step is in selling your home.
According to Wikipedia “Home staging is the act of preparing a private residence for sale in the real estate marketplace. The goal of staging is to make a home appealing to the highest number of potential buyers…”
