I love the texture this new bamboo roman blind adds to our dining room.
I would be surprised if I actually remembered all the combinations of window coverings and hardware this window has seen over the thirteen years we have lived in our home. Some of them would make me seriously cringe. I loved the new black metal rod and clips we added last year but I was still looking for texture and some light filtering.
Before bamboo blinds:
This, however, is my favourite look of all. Texture, simple, and light. Our 15 year old hung this one for me this afternoon and I hope to get the living room blind up soon. We plan to move the curtain rod supports in closer to the window trim and close to the edge of the blind (they are about 10" out from the trim at present.) Oh, and our walls are not pinky at all. Just the lousy lighting at this time of evening.
It is a simple little change but one that makes me very happy. I have been looking locally for affordable bamboo romans but found them quite pricey. Luckily I was able to pick these ones up for 50% off when Zellers was closing.
Hoping you are having a great weekend. I posted twice today, sharing the yard sale we had today in the post below.
