Bamboo Blinds

Sullen Gregory Design
Our trip to the Beaufort house this weekend has us thinking about windows… 
Phoebe Howard Design
Mostly because the majority of the progress this time was new windows, new windows, new windows. (And the new casings, exterior wood siding, etc. that goes along with them!)

All this talk about windows has us thinking about what’s going to go around those windows inside.

We can’t think of anything better to frame coastal views with than bamboo blinds! 
Mancini Design
Against a white or light colored wall or window, we love the dark, deep pop of the perfect shade of bamboo blind.
We adore bamboo blinds alone on a window where curtains won’t do.

Bamboo blinds are fabulous in a child’s room — especially when that child is small enough to want to pull up on curtains that reach the floor!

Our favorite use of bamboo blinds is in combination with white drapes — which is precisely what we think we are going to use in Beaufort. We love the idea of that kind of uniformity from room to room.

Blinds are great for adding a sense of height and space to a room — especially when you hang them as high as possible!
The Decorologist
They may be great for creating privacy and shade, but we prefer our bamboo blinds pulled way up to the top of the window to let in the light!
We hope you are having a wonderful Monday!
