Blinds or shades
March 27, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Just moved into our new home. Does anyone have any suggestions for window coverings? Blinds or shades? My house is decorated in crate and barrel and pottery barn. Dark wood floors. Thank you..

Can you post pictures of a room you are interested in decorating? We can give you better suggestions that way. It will depend on the shape of the window and your other furnishings. Roman shades are a good choice a lot of times. I dont like blinds all that well - they just look too commercial office like.

does not look like you got any suggestions. By commenting, perhaps this will bring it to the attention of others. I like the idea of Roman shades so you can add a touch of color to your neutral pallet. you could start with photography or other artwork first and pull a color from it for your accent color. Whatever you color you choose, repeat in some throw cushions and perhaps vases or candleholders to tie it all together.

I have a lot of photography in my shop which is nancyhehmann that you might want to look at.
