Vintage French Cafe Curtains

6.04.2018

For quite some time I have been wanting some cafe curtains for the breakfast room, but never found the right ones. Then while perusing One Kings Lane a couple of months ago I came across these vintage French cafe curtains. They were just what I had been looking for and the measurements were perfect so in the cart they went. I am loving them in the breakfast room plus they hide some ugly mess on the other side of the window in the sun room. The backside of the t.v. cabinet has always driven me nuts showing in the breakfast room and now I have a heater/ac unit, too next to the cabinet. So these curtains keep all that out of view from this room.


I also never showed y'all the upholstered chairs in here after I swapped the French chairs that were in here with these that were in the dining room. 

I love the embroidered bees and the cute bee trim on the hem.



Of course French cafe curtains call for a French vignette on my French table, oui?

I brought out these yellow bee bowls I had put away and they are perfect with the bee curtains.

Blue  mouth blown glasses from Murano, Italy from a trip many years ago and lemon napkins add more color to this vignette. The white Limoges plates rimmed in gold were an antique mall find years ago.

I filled a vintage blue enamelware colander with some lemons for an extra pop of color for summer and flowering branches are tucked in a vintage French enamelware pitcher. They sit on a vintage breadboard and I had everything on hand. 


I hope y'all have a great week. It's going to be a busy one as we get things ready for my mom to be moved to assisted living soon.

  11. I really like all the “bee” items too! I’m “in” with the bee stuff too. I looked online at One Kings Lane & couldn’t find the curtains. I know you said you got them a few months back. Would you mind looking on the tag to see the company that made them? Thank you. So sweet looking!
