When they remodeled an older family home with French architectural details, kitchen designers Marvin Daniel and Brian Pilgrim of KDW Home wanted to give it an open and airy look that still felt in keeping with the style of the home. Roman shades in a French provincial fabric added just the Old World accent the updated space required.
Mega mixer. I thought I could stand over a bowl with my hand mixer until the cows came home. Then my husband, Ace, bought me the fabulous big boy of mixers. Egg whites beaten in seconds. Cream whipped so fast I have to watch carefully or I'll have butter. Cookies, cakes, cheesecakes go together so quickly, the oven hardly has time to preheat. If only it'd clean up its own splatters.
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.
Fabric-based window treatments are a great way to balance all the hard surfaces in the kitchen while also adding pattern and color. This custom arched shade can raise and lower to control sunlight and privacy. “Whether up or down, the shade keeps the kitchen feeling sunny with splashes of yellow from this Thom Filicia fabric, Prospect in Shadow,” says the manufacturer. Continue the look by using fabric in places like lampshades (see the shades on the wall sconces), barstools, chairs and even Fido's bed.
In a kitchen with simple style and a mostly white color palette, a splash of pattern can add personality. "Help frame a beautiful view with a valance mounted above the window. This ikat-patterned fabric, Bansuri in Slate, has a rich neutral that adds interest to the solid white cabinets," says the manufacturer.
Here’s a great example by designer Tiffany Brooks which how you can display family photos in your kitchen. If you'd like to display photos, keep them corralled in one area of your space to avoid creating a cluttered feeling on your countertops.
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.
