Somebody help me . . . please!!!
I need advice on what to do in my kitchen now that I’ve taken down the curtains . . . that matched the chandy . . . that I didn’t really like . . . but almost left in place . . . because I didn’t want to hurt the previous homeowner’s feelings . . . because she is the nicest lady in the world . . .
‘Nuff said, you can read all about that dilemma HERE!
Just like the old light fixture, they weren’t bad. In fact, they were kind of cute, just not my style.
I like the look of the window panes that were once hidden. I like that more light comes into the room. I like seeing more of the trees in my back yard. But does it leave the area above the window looking too stark? What’s your opinion? Do you think this space NEEDS curtains?
Since I’m no longer living near friends who were always willing to give me opinions I asked Mr. OTN. He didn’t even notice that I’d taken them down so I’m not sure if he ever really noticed that they were there in the first place! Okay, so he was eagle-eyed at finding my new chandy in the great sea of chandys at Habitat for Humanity but that doesn’t mean he notices everything that’s going on at home.
My kitchen is a nice sunny yellow color which was professionally painted just a few months ago so I don’t think I’ll paint it for now even though it isn’t the color of my old kitchen.
Here I go again . . . wrestling with what once was . . .
I loved the colors in my old kitchen! I designed it myself and it was a kitchen I really hated to leave! You can see that makeover (my most popular post ever) HERE. So of course I’d love to create the same exact kitchen in my new house. The problem is that this kitchen has also been recently remodeled so I really can’t justify a complete remodel. In time I will probably add a taller back splash and do something different with the hood over the range but that’s about it.
. . . and add curtains something like this in blue toile.
I also love the look of red and yellow and I have several red accent pieces so I could do something like this with red toile.
Or a bolder Buffalo check like this!
Or I could use all three colors, yellow, red and blue. In this picture you’ll notice that there are no curtains. Probably because it’s colorful enough without them.
. . . even though they don’t show much of the windows. As you can probably tell from my fabric choices, I love French Country kitchens and that is the look I’d like to recreate without getting too busy.
Like I said, I need help and I value your opinions.
