Roman Shades

Window coverings are the perfect finishing touch to any room, but sometimes long draperies can end up looking too fussy.  Roman shades are the perfect alternative window covering that helps create a classic yet practical solution to blocking out the sun.

Adding neutral linen roman shades to these french doors are a subtle way to block out sunlight.

Another example of subtle roman blinds blending in with a well designed room.

In this dining room, Roman blinds are used to add texture and contrast to a room.
