One of my favorite things about my kitchen is the windows, I actually designed this house around the bank of windows to take full advantage of our views. I love my windows! Did I already mention that? 😉 However, as much as I have loved them, I’ve had plans for the corner that I haven’t been able to complete until now. I’m so excited to say that with the help of Mendee at Lighting Design and a little DIY on my part, my favorite corner in my home is complete!
I tried going without window treatments on these windows, I really wanted to let as much natural light stream in as possible. However, when summer rolls around and you have to put on sunglasses to make dinner in the evening (it’s true, my snap chat friends have seen it ;D ). Something had to be done, so I turned to a DIY video by my friend Jennifer Stagg, on making DIY roman shades using blinds. She makes everything so simple! I am not a huge DIY’er but I knew this was a project I could tackle and save some serious $$. If you’re in need of window treatments and you want a custom look, but you don’t want to spend the money. Her video is worth checking out, you can find it HERE. My entire project was under $100.
Now on to my favorite addition, the Sconces!! I had had my eye on these Hudson Valley sconces for above my windows for quite some time. However, the hefty price tag, the fact that I needed three of them, and also the fact that I didn’t need more light refrained me from purchasing them. In comes my friend from Lighting Design. I text her a photo of the sconces that were much more of a want than need. With in minutes she sent me a link with the exact look I was after and they were a fraction of the cost!
Aren’t they Perfect?! You can find the same sconces HERE. I love that the sconces finish up my corner and accentuate the windows.
