This year I resolved to add some final touches to our kitchen. One of the things I wanted to do was to add a flat roman shade to our kitchen window. Not for privacy - I just wanted to add a dose of color and pattern. Here is my kitchen now with my new flat roman shade:
Don't you love it? I bought the fabric at an awesome price from LGN and was contemplating doing the shade myself. Even though I got the fabric for a great price, it was still more than I would usually pay and I didn't want to risk messing up the fabric. So, I opted to have the roman shade done by Windows by Melissa (found via 6th Street Design). Melissa does custom window treatments. Here is another shot:
Melissa did an amazing job and the shade was super affordable compared to how much custom shades run. I am extremely happy. Just so you can get the real effect, here is the before shot:
And, another before shot:
A big difference, huh? I think the shade makes the kitchen and now every time I walk into my kitchen I smile! Thank you, Melissa!! It was great working with you!
Sidenote: I made my post column wider and so now I can post larger pictures. I think it looks a lot better. Here is a great tutorial if you need one!
