The Beauty of Layering: Roman Shades/Woven Shades and Drapery

Roman Shades: Roman Shades are a versatile and elegant choice for window treatments. Their clean lines and smooth operation make them a favorite for many homeowners. When layering Roman Shades with drapery, you create a sophisticated look that marries form and function.

Color Coordination: Begin by selecting Roman Shades or Woven Shades and drapery in complementary colors. For a harmonious and balanced aesthetic, consider choosing shades that are a shade or two lighter or darker than your drapery. This subtle contrast adds depth and dimension to your windows.

Textile Pairing: Think about texture. If your drapery features a smooth, solid fabric, opt for materials with a bit of texture, like our Woven Woods. Conversely, if your drapery has a subtle texture, smooth Roman Shades can create a pleasing contrast.

Layering Styles: Depending on your style and preferences, you can choose from various Roman Shade or Woven Shade styles, from flat to relaxed, and pair them with drapery that complements the look. For instance, flat Roman Shades exude a clean and modern vibe, while relaxed Roman Shades bring a touch of casual elegance to your windows.

Creating Visual Interest with Color and Textiles

Subtle Neutrals: If your design aesthetic leans towards the minimalist or Scandinavian style, consider layering neutral-colored Roman Shades with light, sheer drapery. This combination brightens your space and allows for soft, diffused natural light.

Bold Contrasts: For a dramatic effect, go for contrasting colors and textiles. Deep, rich Roman Shades paired with striking drapery can create a captivating focal point in any room.

Textile Variety: Experiment with different textiles. Combine Roman Shades made from natural materials like bamboo or rattan with drapery featuring soft, luxurious fabrics. The mix of textures adds tactile interest to your space.

Monochromatic Magic: Monochromatic layering can be incredibly chic. Select Roman Shades and drapery in the same color family but with varying shades. This creates a seamless, monochromatic look with subtle variations that add depth and dimension.

Functional Harmony: Light Control and Privacy

The layering of Roman Shades and drapery isn't just about aesthetics; it's about functionality too. Roman Shades offer precise light control, and when paired with drapery, you have the flexibility to fine-tune your desired ambiance. Pull the shades up for abundant natural light during the day, and draw the drapery at night for privacy.
