yep, it’s curtains for you, but i mean it in the best way possible (not like some dastardly cartoon character!). i’m talking about kitchen sink or cabinet skirts, which come in quite handy if you’ve got unsightly plumbing or not ideal-looking cabinets. popular in european kitchens and an easy and affordable way to give your kitchen (or for that matter – a dishwasher, laundry room, bathroom, or office) an updated look that’s not only practical but pretty, too. and these aren’t your granny’s sink skirts, but instead some quite modern takes on the old rustic curtains you may have seen in yesteryears. i’m not the ultimate diy’r but i think taking existing longer curtains and giving them a shorter hem to fit your counter space would be fairly easy. or grabbing some Curtain Rings with Decorative clips and clipping them to fabric panels — or as i did in my kitchen and repurposing moroccan towels for curtains. i’ve also linked to a few ready-made options i found on etsy and other online shops. here are some great looks i found for you. looks like a pretty simple makeover, right?

i’ve only recently discovered today’s instagram worthy feed, but i’ve developed quite the crush and mentioned them here in brief on friday. i think you’ll soon see why i just adore @heroldian_journal brought to us so beautifully by art consultant katharina marie herold of hamburg, germany. katharina runs heroldian art concepts, a company curating bespoke art concepts for private and commercial spaces, helping people invest in art collections that add to their quality of life and offering inspiration at home on a daily basis. much of @heroldian_journal’s feed consists of peeks at katharina’s very eclectic working space and incredible home and how she styles its decorative elements, including its ornate plaster molding and tall ceilings, with some of the uniquely wonderful contemporary artwork she curates. it’s like an ongoing revolving gallery and i just love the juxtaposition of the unique modern artwork’s paired with the details of the 1872 apartment. there’s also an inspiring journal you can subscribe to and view on issuu. be sure to follow @heroldian_journal for more.
