The owner of this contemporary Dallas house clearly has a modernist sensibility so it’s unlikely to find any curtains here. Instead, screen-printed vinyl shades were installed as part of the décor. If that sounds confusing, it is, because the shades aren’t on the windows. The elegant oak and stainless kitchen is open to the dining room. The kitchen has Vermont marble counters, the requisite slab-front cabinets and slim architectural bar handles that keep things looking very neat. There’s pro range and a quintet of delicate pendants over an island. The expansive dining space is dominated by an exquisite George Nakashima table — which qualifies as a work of art in its own right. A set of graceful Italian Sedotta cherry chairs, with black leather seats, coordinate in spirit with the concrete floors. It’s an open plan house.
So it’s a bit surprising to see a trio of screen-printed vinyl shades descend from the kitchen ceiling with a push of a button. Those block off the entire kitchen with artistic serenity. It’s a bit like a Hollywood screening room without a projector, or like saying when dinner is over so is the show and the curtain descends. With their neutral abstract design, the vinyl shades look more like art than privacy panels. And if the cook in the house is messy, this is genius.
