Lovely! Are you going to hang black and white toile panels at the windows or perhaps a London shade like this? So much softer and more interesting than the flat valances.

Love your Table. What do you think about getting rid of the valance and putting up cafe curtains or 1/2 shutters and roman shades Kitchens L Kitchen

I'm thinking about getting the cafe curtains that match the valance.

Good morning ld2! Yes the set is beautiful - totally suits the toile runner and valance! I would leave the windows as is because you have a beautiful view out there, so why cover it up?

I should add that I personally like the mix and match effect of the toile and the checks. It's a very French thing to do!

I like your valance. I don't think you need the cafe cutains. Love the open feeling and the view.

Well, luv, that table and chairs and cushions could NOT have turned out any better!!! Looks fantastic. You really nailed it.. Everything looks sooo great together and I could not be happier for you and your family. I am sure you shot a pic to your sister, did she adore it? Have a wonderful holiday and give yourself a big pat on the back. :))

You're welcome, Luv.. Second thought, It would soften the windows with a panel to the floor, on each outer side of the windows. Stationary, not meant to move across the windows. They would frame the windows nicely. Can you widen the valance and the rod to allow the side panels to not cover too much of the windows? Catch you later .......

They don't make panels like the valance, just cafe curtains. May just keep what I have!

I love it, but I would add sheers under the valance , a cafe curtain will look nice if that is the look that you are looking for , myself I like the sheer and its look :)

I remember your first post and I must say EVERYTHING you have selected and done looks fantastic! I am a fan of French Country design and love the Toile and checks together, table and chairs, rug, wall color...all work together beautifully. I am curious about what lighting you have over your table?

A French Country chandelier would be the cherry on the top for your room. But I can't remember if this was already discussed in your last post. I am thinking you need the fan, right? Something like a lantern design would look nice............just planting a seed. LOL
