At The Shade Store, we love seeing how interior designers incorporate our shades, blinds, and drapes into their clients’ homes. Décor Aid, a national design firm that offers both in-person and online design services, is always creating inspiring new spaces. Here are a few of our favorite designs by Décor Aid designers that feature Roman Shades.
Cascade Roman Shades in a Tranquil NYC Apartment
This classic contemporary design features touches of midcentury style and a gray and blue color palette, which create a calming urban oasis in this two-bedroom Manhattan apartment.
The window treatments in the living room and the master bedroom are Cascade Roman Shades in Wool Sateen fabric, color Twilight, with a blackout lining. When raised, these shades give the drama and softness of drapery without the large amounts of fabric, and allow in plenty of natural light. When lowered, the hand-sewn pleats and dowels lend a beautiful free-falling appearance to the shades.
Flat Roman Shades on the Upper East Side
Light and airy defines the style of this prewar apartment. Décor Aid designers worked to improve the dark space that lacked storage with sparkling translucent accessories, gray and ivory color schemes, and added built-in shelves.
Flat Roman Shades fit right in, adding clean lines in light colors. In the photo above, the Cotton shade in color Putty includes a blackout lining for privacy and light control. Below, in the kitchen, the designers opted for an unlined shade in Perfect Match, color Smoke, for a light filtering touch of texture and interest. The permanent bottom fold of Flat Roman Shades lends a rich and substantial look, even when closed.
