Answer
Thanks for writing me with your question.  

Keep your blinds the same throughout your home regardless of the decor colors.  If you are using off-white in other rooms, use off-white in the living room.

Blinds are like wood trim in that it should all be the same; door casings, window casings, and moldings.  

Enjoy your new wood blinds!
Regards,
Jennifer

Visit my web site at: http://www.jennifertaylorwojcik.com Decor: I've written about it, planned it, designed it and colored it, and I've never stopped loving it. It's not what you spend, or who made it, it's how it makes you feel.

Experience

College, advertising, public relations, marketing, free-lance writing and a plethora of creative endeavors have led me here. As an entrepreneur in decorative product design, I learned the hard way how tough it can be to be in business for yourself. A stint at a law firm taught me humility too. Some three thousand questions ago, I wondered if I could really help. Obviously, I'm still here and still taking your questions. God Bless You!
