Whitney is a New Orleans based interior designer whose self-professed style is bold, eclectic, chic, and modern. She’s also a textile designer who has a line of fabulous pillows. Whitney has set up her design office out of her mother’s home, and after spending so much time there, wanted to give it a little makeover.
Modern Makeover for a New Orleans Kitchen
Whitney saw that in the kitchen natural light levels varied dramatically throughout the day. She worked with Blinds.com to find a solution to filter that light when needed and add some style.
There were A LOT of options to choose from. I ordered a bunch of samples, but there were 3 that stood out to me. We decided that brown floral (Stacy Garcia Watercolor Floral – Beige) and the linear design (Stacey Garcia Menswear – Tweed) was too much for the mostly brown kitchen. So, we went with the beautiful blue Stacy Garcia Silk in Turquoise.
Airy Kitchen Roller Shades Filter Harsh Glare
When Whitney received her shades a few weeks later, she went to work installing them in a flash.
Installation was pretty easy. I had all four shades up in about an hour and a half.
I was so excited to install the shades, because as you can see, this was at the time when the light is at it’s brightest (which is when it’s most harsh). The fabric of the roller shades are thin enough so that the light isn’t blocked, but still helps the kitchen have a softer illumination.
