Have a couple windows with the standard window blinds in the bedroom, and would like something better. Can someone suggest a style, and color. Trim is solid maple, walls are a sandy white color. Picture is similar to what I have for craftsman style trim.

RE: Windows Treatments

Window treatments are part of the overall decorating scheme. It would help to see the furniture in the room so we know what style you are going for. Also, what are you looking for: light control? Total blackout? Privacy?

RE: Windows Treatments

Not much in the line of furniture, just a twin bed and dresser. Hard to take a photo, such a small room. The only thing that comes across my mind is a bottom up top down shade, not sure if I want a cellular or fabric.

RE: Windows Treatments

You could do a woven wood window shade with room darkening lining.

You could go with a fabrich shade in print or colors, but I suggest you start with the bedding first to give you a print or color direction.

Is this a room for a male or female or both? Might help to determine how soft or tailored a look you would prefer.
