What Houzz contributors are saying:
Woven woods bring a distinctly organic texture to a room. Their nubby, slubby feel makes them relaxed and comfortable looking. They enhance and warm almost any decor, from modern to country. (Can you tell woven woods are my favorite blind?)
Another very clean choice for privacy is woven wood. Again, mounted inside, these shades complement the beauty of the window while adding an organic, comfortable feel. The amount of window they will cover can be an issue with these, as well, so make sure to consider that.
If you want a casual look and your bay window is located on the ground level (and you don’t have children), install the banquette just below the sill and toss on some pillows. It’s a good idea to cover the seat cushion with a washable slipcover made from indoor-outdoor fabric, since dirt is an inevitable by-product of bringing the outside in.
