How is the fabric attached to the fleur sconce? - I am hoping to replicate this look in my formal living room, but my bay window is much smaller. Is the hardware a rod tieback and if so, how did you attach the fabric? Is the fabric pulled over the fleur or did you gather the fabric on top and then attach it to the wall or sconce? Thank you, it is a beautiful room! »
Question RE Inside mount of these shades - To preface, I loved reading the conversations between Karla and Paddykk. Love Houzz for all it does and appreciate the designers etc who respond - so awesome.
Ok my question, I was looking at Conrad natural shades today. I am at a loss, go inside mount or outside like here in your picture.
We just had new window molding/casing/apron/sills done a couple days ago. I'd be disappointed to do outside mount as it would cover all molding when they'd be closed. They will be opened and closed daily. More so in cold snowy season.
The good thing about outside mount, it would help by not blocking our wonderful view (as much as inside mount). At least I assume so, the higher I mount them, the higher they will be when opened all the way?
The other thing, we have big windows. One is approx 14 feet, to soften the room, we are putting non usable panels on each side on a soft black rod.
Will it look funny to do outside mount above molding, then shade, then rod above that then crown molding above that? We have the space but is that to much going on?
I originally had my heart set on the twin shade by Horizon Window Fashion. They allow both shade and liner to be open or both closed or one open while other closed. Problem, with inside mount which I want, when they are completely pulled up (at least on our big window) they will fall 17.5 inches, that's A LOT of view blocking.
With a shade like you have here, is there a way to only lose 8-10 inches of window? Can I pull this off with inside mount with another company?
But I really want it all, I want inside mount, separate liner, very little view blocked, natural shade and no valance! yikes - sounds impossible.
Thank you for all your knowledge in advance.
I'm getting Hartman Forbes woven texture shades for my sliding doors. - Where do the pull cords hang in your setting? If I get motorized they seems to not fall close to the door/window casing. If I go without the motorized then the pull cord grows long when the blinds are up!!! I don't like the continuos loop metal bead look since that lives behind the blinds and a little inconvenient to operate - since you have to reach out behind the blinds!!! So any suggestions? Thanks for your time. »
