One end of this cottage kitchen becomes a charming breakfast nook with sunlight pouring in the large windows. The curvy cord of the pendant light over the table is a fun contrast to the room's simple straight lines.
If you want to filter light and soften the look of your kitchen window – but don’t want anything heavy or opaque, consider using a fabric with a loose weave, such as linen, for example. Here, designer Annette English complemented the otherwise pared-down look of the space with lightly textured material from Dan Marty Fabric.
