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.
Big impact can be created in a small space with bold pattern and color choices. Here, a white armchair is energized with a bright yellow accent pillow. Overhead, a black-and-white striped shade adds graphic punch.
To give a fresh look to an outdated kitchen, the designers added a row of upper cabinets to heighten the ceilings and make the space feel larger. Those cabinets were painted the same color as the wall to create unity; the lower ones were made a pretty dark gray for contrast and a more modern feel. Brass fixtures and a graphic roman shade complete the room.
The shiplap paneling behind the windows and cabinets in this kitchen instantly gives a friendly nautical vibe. Add lemon-yellow shades and clean-lined pendants and the whole room is ready for laid-back, beachy fun.
White walls, large windows and a vaulted ceiling make this bedroom feel light, breezy and open. Reclaimed heart pine floors offer warmth and contrast. Woven wood shades allow light to filter through while still providing shade and relief from heat.
To give this gourmet, all-white kitchen a little unique flair, designers layered in metallic touches: a silvery shade, golden barstools and (necessary for a waterfront home!) an oyster full of oversized pearls.
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.
This formerly dark and uninteresting kitchen gets a whole new life with beautiful blue cabinetry, delicate pendants and roman shades with a subtle graphic print. The backsplash is the star of the room: gray tiles in a herringbone pattern.
Long bars across the front of this vanity mimic the drawer pulls, but serve as handy towel rods. Vertical lines are a subtle design theme carried through in the backsplash, window shade and floor tiles.
Every decision, from the floor stain to the accessories, was meant to keep this house feeling open and fresh. In the living room, pops of robin's egg blue and yellow make a cheery contrast with the crisp white walls.
The white color palette from the living room space continues into the bedroom space of this loft apartment. Soft, white linens adorn the bed, reflecting the light from the ceiling high windows. Curtains control the light that enters the space and create privacy, while live edge nightstands and an Asian inspired screen complement the ones that are housed in the living room area.
