Kitchen Dinette Drapes

Hello Everyone!
It's time for Met Monday at Between Naps on the Porch.
Here is our kitchen dinette area before.

After!
I recently purchased new draperies.
They are called Richfield and are from BB& Beyond.
I bought them in gold and it was a perfect match
to the paint called Applesauce Cake from Lowes.

I decided I like leaving the cafe style valances in the center.
The red paint is Cooper Molero Fandango Red at Lowes.They have a leaf print design with burgundy accents.
The bronze leaf finial rod is from Lowes.
I don't buy patterns but I decided to try a new style.
I am really happy with the results.
It makes the room feel warm and cozy.
Have a wonderful week!

Melissa, the drapes are just stunning. They really do change the appearance of the room. It's funny how sometimes even small changes make such a big difference. The print is pretty in the picture, and I'm sure even nicer in person. Very lovely. Hugs, Marty

Hi Melissa - these are great additioins to your breakfast area. I like how they pull in the red from the room. It also adds some weight to the windows. Really pretty. Hope your babies gave you lots of hugs and snuggles today.

Good morning Melissa, I have been catching up, I love your new drapes they are so rich and elegant and look perfect in your dinette area. Your home is beautiful inside and out as I was also reading your previous post on the porch, your Geraniums, ferns and fuschias look so huge and healthy, we are doing everything we can here to attract the hummingbirds, I could sit and watch them all day :-), Hope you have a wonderful week, hugs, Kathy.

Those are beautiful drapes, Melissa! I love color on walls, in fact I just realized there isn't a single white wall in my house!

tardevil said...

Hey Melissa,

Your house always looks perfect. Makes me realize how much work I need to do to mine. Thanks for coming by to check on me. I've been so busy with so many different things. Right now, I'm dickering w/ my insurance company on a plumbing leak, trying to help at school w/ some year end activities, and getting the baby's room ready, all so I can spend half of June & most of July at the beach. I don't know when I'll get to blog again, but I do think of you all & miss you. I hope you're doing well. I think you need to work as a decorator. If you're like me, my house is almost decorated & I need a new project - SOMETHING TO SHOP FOR! Take care & keep in touch!
Penny

Donna@designson47thstreet said...

Melissa, everything you do just spells out C*L*A*S*S. Love what you've done. You have proven to me that I don't always have to have custom draperies to get a very nice look.

Now I just need to convince my two best friends who are blinds and drapery designers! :-}

Connie said...

Love your new room, Melissa. I don't think I have seen it before. It does look good with the addition of the longer draperies on the sides, too. Your home is lovely !
So inviting.....

Karen said...

Why thank you for your sweet comment about my front door. I do like it too. Before we put those in it was so dark inside and now it is nice and bright.

I really like your new drapes. I think they make the red on the wall pop even more. Or it might be because that picture was taken at night. I think they look classy and elegant, yet comfy and warm. Good choice!
It's like they just completed the room.
Have a great day! Karen
