What to do with kitchen window treatments, paint, backsplash and chairs?

I was thinking woven shades and tufted linen chairs!

Consider what your goal is for the window treatments...are you looking for privacy and function or just decor? If privacy is your main goal definitely roman shades in a natural fabric. If you are looking for something decorative this is a great place to add some texture and color. Upholstered chairs would be gorgeous! I would love to see something in a color like green or blue. A new chandelier is a must. The current one is too small and high. What a great space.

Back splash ideas, I love natural stones, tumbled marble etc. This allows you to change decor without a huge investment down the road. Another option is classic subway tile in a neutral color. But with the gorgeous range hood I say go natural stone for the wow factor. Paint color will follow your tile choice. I actually think a muted tone would be best for the overall space- just a hint of color.

Is it ok to have 2 different window treatments in the same space?

yes, as long as they compliment each other and don't fight each other......fabrics that compliment each other in the same style a yes.

@shortped hi! There's no paint yet anywhere! We are thinking neutral, likely grey. What do you think?

hmmmm...I think you could make it work if you hung the same panels on either side of the windows. This would give it a cohesive look from one room to the other. I loooooove plantation shutters and see why you would want to get them, but I feel the blinds and shutters alone in each space would look like you didn't finish. Just my opinion. they can make shutter for any size or shape window, and pic below shows them on the doors......it is pretty awesome!

oh, and the panels could be a very neutral, pick a shade close to the wall color.....it is just to pull the two rooms together. I love gray walls, just be sure it is not too blue or green. Benjamin Moore Sterling or Silvery Moon. Please share pics when you are done......this is going to be gorgeous!

If the countertops are grayish too, could use greens in the kitchen and dining area...if you have a focal wall in living room, could use plum there...then I would use silvery accents. Black or white framed art could be used....crystal....instead of tufted dining chairs, you could use straight lines since next to door....casual elegance...then I would use the "softer" idea of tufting in living room.

I think it looks disconnected, but I think with the panels it could work. You can always tack the panels up and see.
