by MJ Gourd in

Day 7 of 365 Days of a Happy Home!

Are your windows naked?  Are they in need of some covering up? Roman shades are a great option. They can be dressed up or they can look beautiful in their simplicity.  Check out these ideas.  Would you use them instead of drapes?

These are just a few of the options for window shades.


Simple but tailored with the white tape.

Another simple example, but it is so elegant with the gray edge.

This kitchen looks more complete with this simple window treatment.

Simple and elegant.

Roman shades work well on doors.

Maybe a bit over the top!  Not sure I would want in my kitchen, but maybe a master bath.

This is a roll up shade.  Cool details.

More cool detail plus a valence.

Grain or flour sack can become a window treatment. Clever use of trim to widen the sack to fit the window.

Trim on linen.
