What Browsing in a Store Can Lead To

Hello everyone!

The other day, I stumbled upon these pretty draperies in a soft grey and white pattern.  As soon as I saw them I instantly thought of my kitchen.  I have a lot of white in there with some grey accents.  So, I thought these draperies would be another way to bring in some grey along with a soft pattern.





These draperies were already lined too.  So, that was a bonus!







Another change I made was bringing a lamp back in here on the counter top.


Since I don't have pendant lighting over this peninsula, this lamp adds some much needed light.  I seem to change my mind about this alot, but in the end, I think the lamp wins!



Now that the weekend is here, what do you have planned?  Anything fun?  

Thanks for stopping by!

They suit your kitchen perfectly! And I love your kitchen, especially the French doors. So much beautiful sunlight! I plan on cleaning up some old tables I found and hopefully start painting them. A little messier than hanging up pretty drapes! Have a super weekend!

Your new drapes grace your kitchen and add a stunning textural warmth. Personally I adore adding a lamp on the kitchen countertop, I too have one on my peninsula.
Have a delightful weekend.

Your kitchen and dining area is so pretty
drapes or no new drapes love it all
especially that you have lots light from your windows
spotted your ironstone Fromage on the counter

The new drapes are very pretty! I like the view from your sink with the dining area and black cabinet. We are celebrating hubby's birthday tomorrow with a family bbq and then youngest son and I are headed up north with my sister's family to bil's lodge. Hubby and oldest son have to work. Enjoy your weekend!

They look so soft and pretty, Kelly! I also love your sign and the hanging light. What a charming home you have... Xo, ~julie

Kelly, the curtains look super great. I am thinking about adding some curtains in our kitchen nook as well. I have not done it in the past because we back up to a forest and it's so pretty to have the windows all open. BUT I think curtains like yours really add warmth to a space. How are you liking the chair slipcovers from World Market? Have you washed them yet? I have them in our formal dining room so we don't sit there every day. xoxoxoxo Christine

Your new draperies look wonderful in your dining space. I like the lamp, too. I also keep one on my peninsula. The way you capture light in your photos is outstanding. It seems that overtime I point the camera toward a window, I either get a big black hole or a blinding whiteout. What is your secret?

Anne's Attic - Design said...

Kelly, what a great find with the draperies! I love the pretty soft flowing look that they bring to the dinning area, and I love to see a lamp on the kitchen tops it very unexpected and lovely. Have a great weekend. Jo

Ooh, I just loooove your new drapes!! They are so pretty and they are just perfect in your room!

Lisa @ Texas Decor said...

Those drapes are perfect in your pretty kitchen! Love the subtle color and pattern. Just a few years ago, I switched out valances for drapes in my kitchen and living room and could not believe how much I liked it! Drapes just add so much to a room.

Hi Kelly,
I love your new curtains! I recently fell for some gray curtains as well for my living room. I love the softness of them. I also like a lamp for the kitchen counter as well. Love your blog!!!

Vickie @ Ranger 911 said...

Your new drapes add a nice softness to your room and really bring out your gray accents, Kelly! Love the new lamp, too. I wish I'd have that kind of luck looking for window treatments. It takes me forever to find what I want! Happy weekend!

Linda said...

The drapes look lovely! The pattern is so subtle, and they look like they were made for your space.

We are winding up a long weekend with the boys and 'BAM'. I have insomnia now. Been up since 2 :(. I'll be glad to get home. LOL

Beautiful new drapes ... they were meant to be! And, I've always loved a lamp on your peninsula ... I have one on ours, too, and like the "softness" it adds, especially at night. :)
