For Timeless Beauty, Look to Rome(ans)

When you think of Roman shades, what comes to mind? Is it home-made, bulky, drapery-mimicking window coverings that obscure half the view of your window and have no place in your modern home? Roman shades don’t have to be that. In fact, a Roman Shade can be as versatile a window covering as a cellular without the crisp pleats and modern style of a cellular shade. Because of the wide variety of patterns and fabrics available, these gorgeous creations can lend themselves well to any home, and have an added bonus: Timelessness.
