Hello my friends!
It’s just a few days before Christmas and today I want to share with you some of the plans we have for the house and what else is going on home décor-wise in our new home. You may remember that 5 years ago when I moved in my previous fixer-upper house, I worked with a great company here in Atlanta called Payless Décor in adding bamboo Roman shades in my house.
When I think back on all the window treatments I’ve had in all my houses, it makes me chuckle a little. We all remember the metal mini-blinds, right? I had those in my first house in 1985 and I thought they were the coolest things ever! That trend lasted for several years and then everyone started doing the white wooden blinds which are still popular today, although there are so many newer choices now.
I haven’t changed much at all in my love of Roman bamboo shades and that’s the choice once again for most of the windows in our new house. I still love their warmth, their texture and their versatility in creating a relaxed casual look in a home, but also dressy enough for even more formal spaces.
Here are a few examples I found of some beautiful windows dressed in bamboo shades and you can see for yourself how textured and warm they look. I think what I like about them the most is the fact that they can be used in so many settings. From casual, to more formal settings, they add texture and an organic feel to the windows that you don’t get with plain white blinds.
Don’t they look great in this little bathroom with the board and batten walls and all that white tile? With just a little bit of natural wood in that side table and shelf on the wall, the bamboo adds just the right touch of casual texture to the window.
