I know by now you've heard and seen alot about the topic of adding texture to your rooms, right? This can be done in many ways, but for today we will talk about one of the ways....
WITH BAMBOO SHADES
This is a great look whether in a formal room...or in a very casual room...or a fun, whimsical room. Honestly, they work just about anywhere. So there, that will solve the question..."but will these work in my room?"
These shades can be used with, or without, drapery panels. I for one love the WITH draperies since it tends to look "softer". But, either way is fine and just a personal choice really.
I really like how these shades and draperies were hung all the way up. It adds such height and flair to the room. So, remember to think outside the box when you install...can you mount them up higher to visually enlarge YOUR room?
In this lovely dining room, the bamboo shades are what we call "outside mounted" (meaning they are mounted outside of the window trim). These were not mounted way up, but the draperies were installed a bit higher, which still makes the room feel higher. Isn't this a gorgeous room, by the way?
Here is a much more casual dining nook. These shades are actually close in color to the hardwood floors...ta da...what a great look!
These make great shades for an office too...and without the panels.
Another room without panels...and I especially love the wicker used in this room with the shades (basket, chairs, tables - more texture!). This room has a great overall "feel"...don't you agree?
OK, enough said...now for a "Before" and "After" photo to show you just how much these lovely textured bamboo shades can add to a room...ready?
How do YOU feel about these shades? Do you like or dislike? Could you make this change in YOUR home to give it a new "feel"? We'd love to know your thoughts!
Make it a "Simply Irresistible" Saturday!
