Do you remember this post on my kitchen window treatment dilemma?
In short, the new house next door to me is very visible from the kitchen and breakfast room. I needed to do something to help block the looming cream colored house. We will eventually put in a green screen of trees outside, but in the meantime I now have privacy and the ability to block out the new house when I want/need to...Plus it softens the whole kitchen and breakfast room. The curtains can close all the way, completely covering the windows, 41 yards of white linen is very helpful! I decided to stop the curtains at the window sill instead of going to the floor so the room didn't look too small. But they go all the way to the crown molding, emphasizing the 10 foot ceilings. I put a roman shade over the sink to give privacy and block the house, but not add too much fabric, which might get wet and dirty when we wash dishes. My curtain maker is awesome! Thanks Craig.

See how you really don't notice the new house as much now. Yay!
