Today’s goal was window treatment shopping. As much as I hate shopping, Guillermo hates it more. But he was very patient.
We ended up choosing things I never would have thought of. Not set in stone yet, we’re still looking at pricing and maybe another store. But we got a lot of education today, and some interesting ideas. I didn’t photograph them all, but here’s a snippet.
Honeycomb “cellular” blinds that open at top and bottom for both bathrooms. Shown with laminate and paint colours. These work well in damp environments.
This is how they operate, top and bottom
We chose one in a warm cocoa colour with blackout for our bedroom. Will look something like this except with cooler tones
We’re still waffling on the patio door in Bills office, but it may just be bamboo Roman blind. My mind is blown.. I can’t believe we’re considering it.
And finally the living room and dining room big windows.. we kept coming back to the functionality of horizontal wood blinds… but how about not white, how about weathered wood?? Photo doesn’t do the colour justice. It blends so well with our livingroom furniture ( the fabric in the background) and our paint colours. BM Steam trim, BM Sea salt walls
For valance, I plan on having our carpenter build them to match the trim.. rather than the valance matching the window treatments. Like this.
Or maybe this?
All in all, a productive shopping day. If you know me… you know it sucked the life out of me, but feels good having made some serious headway.
