Dolores Street ResidenceTraditional Bedroom, San Francisco
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
