I am thrilled to share a recent opportunity that came our way from Decorview, which is part of Hunter Douglas. Our dining room and study both face the busy road and are in dire need of some sort of shade to provide privacy at night. We have wanted to put roman shades or something along those lines for years but it just was never a priority, something else always took precedent.
These are the two rooms in need of window treatments to provide privacy.
The Dining Room
These curtains are coming down and new drapery will be added along with new camel colored roman shades, compliments of Decorview.
Our study is actually a two part series. We started with the makeover of this room from a little kids playroom over a year ago to a more bigger kid room for doing homework and hanging out with friends. The room was completed just before Christmas last year so it never got completed with the “everyday” furnishings and decor.
Here is the room over a year ago as the playroom and a complete disaster!
Here is the room just before Christmas last year. As you can see, the road is fairly close to the house and when we are watching TV at night, it’s a complete show for whoever is outside! ha. I normally pull the drapes closed but they are not wide enough to offer complete coverage and honestly, they look awful closed. Not to mention, I have to climb over the couch to close them! I can’t wait to just have shades that can be lowered.
Julie from Decorview, arrived last week and we spent some time talking about what our needs were and how we envisioned the room. We decided that a roman shade, batten front bungalow fabric in camel would be ideal from their Design Studio line. I won’t lie, the in-home design consultation was fabulous!
She was incredibly knowledgeable and super fun to work with. This is the camel colored fabric I chose and I cannot wait to see how each window looks.
She measured each window and the installer will be here in a week or so to complete the process. Each window consists of 3 adjoining windows so we decided that 3 individual shades would look more aesthetically pleasing on the eye. I wasn’t a big fan of the one large roman shade for all three windows. The roman shades will be mounted to the top of the inside casing and will provide the privacy we need at night and will be pulled to the top during the day adding character and texture to the window.
Not only is the fabric and design gorgeous but we decided to go with the power rise with remote option. These babies will be set to open and close with a remote! I can’t wait for my gram to try these out. With the push of a button, the shades will lower or rise.
Miss Julie has her entire selection and office right in her car. I seriously was in heaven looking at all the different designs, patterns and window treatment options. What a fun job she has! Be sure to check back in a couple weeks when we share the “after” shots of both rooms. Both rooms will most likely be decorated for fall and the new roman shades are going to look fabulous, we can’t wait! In the meantime, be sure to hop over to the Decorview blog for loads of inspiration and window treatment ideas.
