“Fabric shades are like great art: They transform a space and its inhabitants,” says Kara Roberts, Director of Merchandising for Smith & Noble, the manufacturer of the Moroccan-style shades shown here. Flat Roman shades fold up at the top when fully raised and lie flat when lowered, creating a low profile look that works with a wide range of fabrics and prints.
This breakfast area is a cheerful mix of patterns: Bernhardt dining chairs with a graphic back and nailhead trim surround a round Coddington-designed walnut table. A silver leaf iron pendant, roman shades and a Moroccan-print accent rug complete the space. The artwork in the adjoining living room is by Monika Steiner.
