If you want to filter light and soften the look of your kitchen window – but don t want anything heavy or opaque consider using a fabric with a loose weave such as linen for example. Here designer Annette English complemented the otherwise pared-down look of the space with lightly textured material from Dan Marty Fabric.
The black matte finish is available in more modest sizes too from 1.25“-diameter Luminous round knobs from SpectraDecor to Atlas Homewares 5-5/8“ Primitive Pull and Du Verre Hardware s Marcel single-post pull an aluminum piece with asymmetrical geometric cutouts designed by hipsters Jeffrey Goodman and Steven Charlton. Like all Du Verre pulls these are hand-poured in small batches using the sand-cast method.
For the ultimate in flexibility consider shades that can be raised and lowered from the top or bottom as needed. “These simple and sleek shades by Kirsch can drop down from the top or raised up from the bottom to allow you to control the view or the sunlight as needed“ says the retailer.
Hambright s approach works just as well for those who don t own a single pro-quality appliance and have little prospect of getting one whether the reason is budget an immutable kitchen design or impending move. There are plenty of smaller gadgets and cookware pieces that will help you cook like a pro without breaking the bank or remodeling the kitchen and they ll move with you when you go.
Creating a coffee station on your kitchen counter is another great way to bring smart style to your space. Designer Kerrie Kelly has gathered her supplies such as mugs ground coffee and the coffee maker in one corner. You could even add some pretty gold spoons or tea supplies if you like to drink tea as well.
Window treatments not only add softness and style but also control light protecting interior furnishings and materials from damaging UV rays. “Flat Roman fabric shades from Smith & Noble are available with a privacy lining that offers sun protection” says Kara Roberts Director of Merchandising for the company. Shown here is a Flat Roman Fabric Shade in Samara/Stone with privacy lining.
