Window Treatments, do they block light? Are they blinds? - I have a wall of doors/windows like this. They need to be able to open and block the sun at various times of day. There is also a transome above. »
Do you have any additional pictures of the fireplace showing the detail of the trim work used? We have a supporting structural column on the side of our living room fireplace and I would love the have our fireplace trimmed out in a similar way. »
Consider the amount of light you want. If you want privacy as well as light, a natural woven roman shade might fit the bill. If your space has multiple doors, a woven shade will not only let the sun through and keep the space relaxed and neutral.
On doors. Addressing the window treatment for your doors can be daunting, but woven wood shades can lessen the hassle. In this room, the woven wood shades allow the doors to function seamlessly. Style tip: Apply hold-down brackets to the bottom of the door, so a lowered shade won't swing around when you open the door.
Style tip: Install your woven wood shade on the outside of the window frame rather than inside for a heavier and more dominating appearance. Inside the frame looks sleek, while putting the treatment outside the frame looks bold.
