Instant Chic - Bamboo Shades

I just adore bamboo shades and really have a hard time using anything but these days. To me, they are the perfect look for windows to get that au natural, beach casual, chic look. The best part is that they are a heck of a lot cheaper than your standard window treatments, which most of the time I loathe anyway, unless they are light and airy...

They are so versatile and let the light in which is what you need to create a refreshing space:







do you favor bamboo shades?

  5. I was interested to see that they even used them on the sliding doors in the breakfast room picture.
    I'm wondering if that would work with french doors that open out?

    On the third picture down, do you think that is a leaning canvas adding the pop of black and white? It really adds something to the room, but I'm having trouble figuring out what it is.
