Tara’s Family Room.
Today I’m sharing the family room. Alongside the Kitchen, this room is literally the center of the home.
In this before shot, taken from behind the huge kitchen island you see in the foreground, is the large span of windows which will eventually open up to the back patio.
This wall of windows measures approximately 12 feet wide.
While contemplating the window treatments, we knew we didn’t need functioning panels for either privacy or light control so we chose to hang “dead panels” purely for looks and impact.
Tara went with custom iron hardware through the house. We chose to use 3′ rods with bold finials to hang 100″ wide pleated panels flanking the doors.
Because these window treatments would also be seen from the back patio I suggested we line them with something fun that would look great from outside as well.
The family room and kitchen are open to each other. Here you can see how the breakfast room adjoins the family room.
This black and ivory houndstooth was the perfect compliment to the red chenille damask.
The view from the patio.
As you’ve probably guessed this view of the backyard was taken when the weather was quite a bit warmer than it is these days.
We also banded the lead edge of each panel with 3.5″ of the houndstooth…
And hung to the panels to “break” on the floor.
Be sure to visit the rest of Tara’s beautiful home (links at top of post). You’re sure to find all sorts of inspiration!
