Decorating & Furniture/Window treatments
I have a new home with a great room with dark chocolate hand hewn wood floors. I have a rich blond yellow color on the walls. I have large windows and french doors and would like to install bamboo shades to control the light and add privacy at night. My dilemma - do I choose a light colored bamboo shade to blend with the walls (all the woodwork is white) OR do I pick a deeper shade of brown to bring the color of the floors up the walls? I'm really struggling with this. Thanks for you help.
Hello Patti ,
Bamboo shades are available with light colours with hints of browns , dark browns and tans . Maybe a little green mixed in would catch attention for the good . All white may bring too many bright colours into the room . With the dark chocolate flooring , bamboo colours of the four mentioned would fit just right . Maybe select those colours with the white being the back ground colour .
To block light from coming through the bamboo sticks , have the shades linned . Linning the shades will help protect the bamboo .
