A new window treatment can dramatically change the look of the whole kitchen, especially if you pair it with just a single prominent accessory in the same color. Here, the red shade is complemented by a vase and bowls, but you could also harmonize with that shiny red toaster or sunny yellow stand mixer you’ve been eyeing. Shown is the Bali® Soft Roman Shade from Blinds.com; the fabric is Bazaar Off Broadway.
A custom Roman shade blends with the wall's soft gray hue, giving the illusion of added space in this restful bedroom. In this room as throughout the home, contemporary touches mix with classic details. The renovated Victorian house has been fully updated to meet the needs of a modern-day family.
Window treatments not only add softness and style, but also control light, protecting interior furnishings and materials from damaging UV rays. “Flat Roman fabric shades from Smith & Noble are available with a privacy lining that offers sun protection,” says Kara Roberts, Director of Merchandising for the company. Shown here is a Flat Roman Fabric Shade in Samara/Stone with privacy lining.
Although it may seem like a small detail, a window treatment’s pleating style can result in a much different look. For a laid-back touch in this otherwise sophisticated red living room, the French doors are dressed with a relaxed Roman shade. In this context, "relaxed" refers to the gentle swoop of the leading edge that adds shape to narrow windows.
A glass-tiled shower, spacious bathtub and streamlined vanity are all features of this modern bathroom. Large windows with oversized Roman shades complement the tile color and add natural light to the spacious bathroom.
This powder room makeover features soft green textured walls paired with classic white trim and natural hardwood floors. Neutral floral Roman shades decorate the windows, while a rectangular vanity sink adds a modern touch.
A pair of Roman shades adds contrast to the pale lemongrass walls in this living room. The slim sofa is topped with floral throw pillows, while a few Asian-inspired accessories emphasize the simplicity of the design.
This bathroom offers both functionality and style. A creamy Calcutta marble backsplash behind the shower pairs beautifully with the warm wood vanity and bathtub surround. Burlap Roman shades offer privacy while allowing light to trickle in through the rustic window treatment.
High and low pieces blend to create a functional, family-friendly space. Geometric patterns dominate in the mix of colorful throw pillows, while casual Roman shades dress the windows and filter light. A comfortable modular sofa provides a cozy spot for the family to relax.
“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.
