Schwartz and Architecture

This 7,000 square foot renovation and addition maintains the graciousness and carefully-proportioned spaces of the historic 1907 home. The new construction includes a kitchen and family living area, a master bedroom suite, and a fourth floor dormer expansion. The subtle palette of materials, extensive built-in cabinetry, and careful integration of modern detailing and design, together create a fresh interpretation of the original design.

That should be 'stoney' white I.e. one that doesn't clash with the white shutters.

You're description of the space doesn't match the picture...a little confused as to which one it really is. There are no shutters in the picture, bedspread is white, etc??? Please clarify.

Roman shades installation with non-wrapped window - Client would like to use roman shades in similar window app with these 3 windows. It is southern exposure but they are not concerned about privacy and heat. Windows however in my application are NOT wood wrapped and I would prefer to use "simple panels" on both sides of window to bring together and create some softness. Plus, A dining room on the North opposite wall-one large window , so need to flow together and pull room together since it is quite long of a room with high ceilings. What do you think? Am I wrong?

Can ROman Shades made with blackout lining and still be effective, given that some light will seek in on the sides? Can plantation shutters be as effective as Romans with Blackout? Thanks!

Should I install roman shades on my vinyl windows by drilling directly into the window frame?

Annie Thornton
Drilling into your windows may void the warranty, so I would suggest that is not the best option. I would think it's best to mount the window treatments onto the sides or on the inside of the top of the window jam outside of the casement-this is called a top mount.

donnagangi wrote:
Are these inside or outside mounted? - Hi. It looks like these shades are what I described as "mixed mount" meaning inside mount on one side and then sort of "outside" mount on the other side (except for the middle shade). Am I seeing that correctly? If so, our windows are the same style, meaning each of the window panes is not "boxed in." Given that, I am thinking there are three choices: 1) the way you did it, 2) one large shade or 3) multiple shades with a common headrail. I assume you picked what you picked for a reason, but was wondering your thoughts on the three choices I described. Thank you!

decordemon added this to Your Windows: Roman Shades 101
Tone-on-tone styles are a safe bet for any design lover looking to bring Roman shades into their home. This style is a layering effect using slightly different shades of the same color. If you're on a budget, this is a great way to go since most retailers carry readymade options in neutral tones. You can always find amazing, streamlined neutral shades online at The Shade Store.
Margaret Everton added this to 12 Ideas for Contemporary Window Dressings
These sleek slate-toned shades provide the needed balance between light and dark in this gentle and beautifully simple bedroom. The slightly darker shade adds dimension without drawing attention to the shades themselves.

9. It is best to avoid unnecessary details, such as ruffles in furniture and window treatments. Use simple paneled draperies or shades.
Danyelle Mathews added this to 8 Master Bedrooms Where Casual Is King
When I think of custom drapery, my mind often envisions heavy fabric overpowering a room. What I learned: When done right, custom drapery, like these Roman shades, can add a level of simple sophistication.
BedroomsMake your bed each morning. This one simple thing can go a long way toward feeling that all is right at home. If it's not already your habit, resolve to begin smoothing your sheets and covers and plumping your pillows each morning. Just walking by the bedroom will give you a little lift, and sliding into a crisply made bed each evening is one of life's little pleasures that shouldn't be missed.
Laura Gaskill added this to Unify Your Home in 8 Simple Design Areas
4. Window treatments. Choosing a single window treatment style for your home is one simple way to connect the rooms. Roman shades are a classic choice — they look good with any style decor, and they can be layered with curtains if you want to change things up.
Dylan Chappell Architects added this to 7 Tips for Designing Your Bedroom
2. Focus on the view. A bedroom always feels nicer when the first thing you experience is a pleasant view out the window — as opposed to a view looking straight at the bed. If you're designing a new bedroom or reworking an old one, try to come up with a layout that focuses on the vista — whether it's something as stunning as a lake or as simple as your backyard.

i like the higher base to the windows, because it disuses the railing on the porch, and pulls your focus upward to the skyline. I think it would be good to size the windows based on the railing height required for the porch.
