When we finished the Fullmer kitchen a few weeks ago, there was actually one element that we were still waiting on and a few of you guessed it–window treatments! After the new windows went it, it was hard to think about covering them. But the truth is, good window treatments don’t cover windows, they compliment them. That is what ultimately lead us to the beautiful, Deluxe Woven Wood Shades from Blinds.com.

When we shared a few of our favorites on Instagram, there was a big push from the majority of our followers over there to use the Linen Stripe option and I get it–it’s gorgeous!! The Linen Stripe Vanilla-Stone on top of the pile to the right is equally so. But when it came down to it, we were looking for a supporting character. We were looking for a shade that would block the glaring sun sets at night, add some subtle texture and warmth to the room, be beautiful and complimentary when closed. When we held the samples next to the other wood tones and finishes in the room, the Capri-Natural Deluxe Woven Wood Shade was the winner! We did the cordless option (the only way to go with little ones!) with a light-filtering backing.
It arrived and the installation was a breeze. It took Chris all of 10 minutes to get both hung.
Isn’t that texture dreamy?? The shades are so easy to pull down and push up and they actually ADD so much to the space.
It’s a warm, textural, quiet softness the windows desperately needed. They connect the other wood tones and really soften the windows. Don’t be surprised if we use these same shades all over our new home now!
We carried the same shades into their living room to cover their HUGE window they had there. Because the window was so large, we had to use two shades together, but it works well and the Fullmer’s love the ease of blocking out the afternoon rays now.
