So we have two awesome windows in our kitchen, but one BIG problem has come to our attention. Now that there is not a wall dividing the rooms, a glare has reared it's ugly head.
We have a lovely shiny glare across the television-- which will not fly for much longer with the Man.
I've been hunting for something to replace the pitiful blinds we removed and I'm falling for bamboo shades. In a few of my apartments during my college days, I used matchstick blinds and I really like the natural texture it can bring into a room. So first off some inspiration:
Light and bright from the Youngsters:
Comfy and cozy from Sarah, the queen of thrifty and "cauuute"
And even more inspiration from one of my favorite local-ish bloggers, Layla:
All these are beautiful to me and I think it would look so fresh to have the natural shades with the breezy white sheers I picked up last yardsale weekend.
However, I checked my usual haunts for some textured shades and none were to be found. I had been fawning over some from Target, but apparently they only carry them online now. I was hoping for an affordable option so we could put them up ASAP. I guess I need to do some "window shopping" first.
Haha.. window shopping, for blinds... that's almost as bad as my music intro.
Oh well, since my usual spots didn't have it-- I guess this birdie will have to check out World Market and maybe a little Home Depot excursion is in order.
I know, poor pitiful me.. having to roam World Market all alone...
I think I'll survive.
