Window Coverings from The Shade Store
One thing I knew for sure with Ida was that I was determined to keep the original windows. The downside? Single paned glass is not energy efficient and large windows means little privacy.
I decided to work with The Shade Store because they provide everything from curtains to romans to hardware and also have a wealth of knowledge about how to dress windows. And I was right, from beginning to end my process with The Shade Store was easy and comfortable. The communication was prompt, the help was genuine and the materials are well made. They made my selection process so easy!
The window treatments from the shade store have had a dramatic impact on the house- accenting the windows, dappling the light and making it feel cozy yet sophisticated.
Each time I walk into a room at Ida I once again fall in love with them. Adam and I feel like we live in a hotel instead of a construction site! Real reality, I was hesitant to go with so much fabric because I love the large windows and decorative trim Ida has throughout. I never thought that adding soft drapes and cozy roman shades would only enhance these architectural details.
For the primary bedroom I used a thicker roman shade for privacy and layered a beautiful ripple fold drape to make the room feel soft & sophisticated.
For the Primary Bathroom I also used a flat roman shade but added a custom lining for extra privacy
I love how the guest room came out, with dramatic drapes of contrasting colors on the taller windows and a simple roman shade on the other
For the sunroom we used light-filtering woven wood roman shades (so pretty) that are configurable to get the light perfect in the room while also blocking any views.
People often forget that good window treatments are an investment but when they’re done right they make a world of difference in a room and I can honestly say that my experience with The Shade Store & results make it well worth the investment !
