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.
The sink was left in its picturesque spot, centered in front of the windows. But a cheery graphic shade was added, as well as new window glazing and hardware that would complement the room's Tudor character.
Gray wallpaper creates a subtly fun accent wall in this contemporary bathroom. A gray and white fabric on the roman shade ties in with the wallpaper, while glossy white marble on the floor lends a luxurious vibe. Modern sconces flank the minimally framed mirror.
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.
