One of my favorite parts of any design project is deciding on the window treatments! They really help set the tone for the room, and they play an important functional role, too.
So this week I want you to help me decide between using full draperies on my living room windows, or using roman shades. I really like the look of both of them! Drapery panels add a sophisticated touch to a room, and they have the added benefit of blocking the light. Since we’ll be watching TV in this room quite often (yes, we’re going to have a TV here), then that will be important.
But I also like the sleek look of roman shades, and the living room design I have in mind is definitely sleeker and very serene. Roman shades can also cover the windows perfectly, although they don’t usually block as much light as my double-faced draperies do.
So which would you choose: draperies or a roman shade? Let me know in the comments below! I would also LOVE to know what window treatments you have on your living room windows, and why!
