I've been dreaming of some patchwork-cafe curtains to replace the horrid blinds in my kitchen window.
I'm picturing something with  red, yellow or blue.  Dots and florals, maybe some ric-rac, and a ruffle or two. 

(Please excuse the dirty dishes, it's my day off!)

I've been slowly adding pops or red around this primarily blue and yellow kitchen.  I just love the cheerful
feeling  a little bit of red inspires!


I can't wait to get started. Too bad I first have to decide between all these fun fabrics and then wait for the post man.  I'm not very patient when it comes to home decor!


  1. ooh so bummed I never got to see your cute house in person. This is a cute little kitchen (even with dirty dishes :)

    Also I think I like the third fabric you posted up with the red and white polka dots and ties :)

    Had anymore luck deciding?


  2. I like your kitchen. And your ideas for decorating and adding red! Red is hard to do in a kitchen, I think, without looking kitschy. It's been done so many times, and with so many styles, that to make it look classy and fresh is hard. You've got the touch, though!

  3. I LOVE the kitchen cupboards. We are longing to yank out the modern polished pressboard ones we have and look for something old and wood. We're looking in Craigslist, hoping someone wants to update.
