It seemed like cafe curtains went on vacation replaced by clean pleated panel drapery. However, I am seeing a resurgence in these lovely little window jewels. My sister and design partner has decided to do them in her kitchen and I cant wait to see how they turn out! I found so many lovely examples of these treatments and they are a perfect for a bit of privacy just about anywhere,especially when they are done correctly. I love them simply pleated with ring tops on either straight or iron return rods, sometimes brass return rods fit the purpose as well. How do you feel about cafe curtains?
