I am remodeling my house in a mediterranean feel and while I want to have sheer drapes blowing in the breeze throughout some areas of the house, I am considering the roman shades for others in the waterfall style. I am wondering if they would allow any air flow from open windows when they are closed. We don't have air conditioning and it can get warm at night sometimes. Thoughts? Also if anyone has links to good examples of Greco-Roman style window treatments and decor, I would love to take a look for ideas! Thanks!

We just moved into a home that doesn't have any window coverings. We want to get window treatments that will be stylish and effective. I love the simple look of the unconstructed flat roman that, like you said, can work well with patterned textiles. http://precisionwindowtintingmt.com/residential-and-commercial-tint.html
