Bringing fabrics into your kitchen is an excellent, inexpensive avenue to making your kitchen more beautiful and custom. There are a bountiful of ways to carry fabrics and patterns into your kitchen. Lets start with the most obvious, window treatments.
Window treatments are often used for privacy and temperature control but they can also be an important catalyst in exuding personality and warmth into an otherwise dull space. To prove this point, test your imagination and picture these kitchens without their window treatments (yikes, this sounds kind of creepy, like I’m asking you to imagine somebody without their clothes on).
Below are the sources for the window treatments in our kitchen. They rang in at a total of $80. Not bad considering the difference they make!

Yep, they are starving for fabric!!! Starving, get it? It’s a kitchen and it’s starving??? Okay, very (p)unny I know! Glad I have a computer screen to protect me from all the tomatoes being thrown at me right now:-) Are you cooking up some plans for putting fabric in your kitchen? Oh dear, I made another (p)unny! This is getting bad, I better stop now because it’s likely to get worse at this point:-) If you are in need of some fabric inspiration I recently started a Pinterest Board on Fabrics I Swoon Over. Can’t wait to keep adding more fabrics to the board. Fabric is too fun!
UPDATE: I recently came across a great article that gave tips on how to mix fabric patterns. If you are interested the article can be found here. My favorite tip is #5.
