MATCHSTICK BLIND

Today I went over to a friends new home to brainstorm ideas for their window treatments.  These super sweet friends just purchased a historic home - which surprisingly has a ton of natural lighting.  There are even 2 large curved bay windows - one in their living room and one in their dining room.  These windows were the focus of our conversations today.  Their main question was what type of window treatments should they do?  Blinds?  Shades? Curtains?, etc.  Because this is an older home there is a ton of really pretty wood work detail around all of the windows.

The only thing I could picture when standing in their dining room is this:

I love the look of the natural bamboo shades with the curved rods and the long floor to ceiling curtains.  While I love this white look, I also would really love to see this with a bold navy blue pattern on an off-white/cream curtain.  See pic below:

Or something like this too:

Because the bay window in their living room has a window seat under it, we decided it would be best to just do the bamboo shades, and no curtains.  Something like this:

I am so into the light bamboo shade with the long floor to ceiling curtains right now.  Everywhere you look you are seeing this style.  It looks classy and clean, and also makes the room feel very warm and cozy.  With the option of getting a privacy liner in the shade - it makes for a functional design element as well.  Did I mention you can buy these at your local Lowe's or Home Depot; they are very reasonably priced.  

I put together a few inspirational photos using the bamboo shades - hope they inspire you as much as they have for me today!

Do you all love as much as I do?!  

I had so much fun throwing ideas back and forth today for their window treatments and other coordinating design elements in their home.  It is hard sometimes to convey the image you are picturing in your mind, however, I think a combination of the above photos is convincing enough;).
