I love the clean lines and tidy folds of Roman shades (also known as Roman blinds), especially at a window where a heavier or fussy window treatment wouldn't be appropriate.…
Choosing drapes, is it better to pick a fabric color that matches the color of the walls, or should the drapes contrast with the walls so the window will stand out? ~ Chris
Great question, Chris!
And of course, as in so many decorating decisions, the answer is… it depends!
How many windows do you have to dress, and what size and shape are they? This will determine the overall visual impact of the window treatment just as much as the fabric you use. Full-length drapes with a swagged valance over top will have a much greater “weight” in your color scheme than a simple cafe curtain, obviously.
