Aloha! I'm back from my lovely vacation in Hawaii (and work trip in Toronto). After a three week hiatus, Velvet Toolbox is back in full effect, yeeehaww!
A couple of months ago, I ordered a gorgeous fabric from Avenue Design and had them construct a roman shade for the window above our kitchen sink. I came home from Hawaii to a wonderful voicemail letting me know that the roman shade was ready for pickup. Obviously I couldn't contain my excitement and I made my way to the store within a few hours of landing.
I'm really pleased with how it turned out:
The fabric is a creamy linen, with charcoal grey / nearly black velvet stripes, which blends in perfectly with the backsplash color scheme and pattern.
In nearly 1 year of renovations, I think installing the shade has to be the easiest thing I've ever done. We bought some small white L-brackets from Rona, which I then screwed into the back of the roman shade.
I find that dressing up a window really completes the design of a room.
What do you think?
