One of our favorite window treatment combinations is layering a blackout Shade with a light filtering Shade or Drapery panel. Not only does this create a beautiful finished look, but it also allows you to carefully control light and privacy, depending on the time of day or your personal preference. This is a great option for bedrooms and other commonly used living spaces.

If a more neutral look is your go-to, try mixing your textures instead. We carry stunning Woven Wood Shades in four distinct styles and over 90 natural, bamboo, and grass materials. These shades are beautiful and versatile – they look lovely paired with Roller Shades, Solar Shades, or Drapery! Woven Woods are the perfect way to bring in some dimension, while still keeping your window scheme calm and neutral. This allows you to go bold with the rest of the space, too!
