Decorating with Woven Shades

We have jumped on the "woven wood shade" bandwagon!!
 We do this SO often in clients homes and are looking to use this on a 
new kitchen renovation we are working on at the moment!

Another "old' new trend that is up and coming! I love woven shades. They are casual, sophisticated and comfortable all at the same time!
But I have grown to love/realize that they can easily make a room much more comfortable without adding another pattern or color to the room!
Decorating with woven wood shades will add warmth and rich dimension to your living area. Their appearance is relaxing and inviting, adding sophistication to your home. - Ace of Shades 

Woven wood blinds, also called bamboo blinds are made of natural materials. They can be made of one or a mix of the following materials:
Matchsticks / Reeds

Shades can be ordered with optional edge banding or privacy lining for complete light control and an added decorative touch. - I love layering them with drapery panels. 
How to Measure for Shades:
For inside mount: To figure width, measure across the inside of the window frame at the top, middle, and bottom, and use the narrowest width. Find the height by measuring from the inside surface at the top of the window to the windowsill.

 For outside mount: Measure the outside width of the window frame. Add 3 inches for overlap. Determine where you'd like the shade mounted above the window. Measure from that point to the bottom of the window. Hint: Add extra inches to mount shades higher and give the illusion of taller windows. Caring for your shades Natural shades will last for years. Periodically vacuum them with the brush attachment to keep them looking their best. Also, beware of using shades in damp areas such as a screened porch or bath, as they can easily mildew.  

Very natural, and "green"/eco friendly!

  1. Great post! I recently picked up a few for my Living Room, but since it's two layers of windows (top and bottom), I haven't decided yet. I love the look, but if I hang them over the main windows, then it cuts the wall in half...if I hang them over the top windows....they're 15' high!!!
