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.
Blinds.com is having a big summer sale, up to 40% off site wide through August 4th so now is the perfect update your window treatments. (I’m gotta use that pinstripe one SOMEWHERE!)
We designed the Charly line of sofas, chairs, and ottomans with perfect proportions for comfort — with wide arms, a loungey depth, and stylish and practical lumbar pillows. Available in 70 kid-friendly, pet-friendly fabrics, this line was created with families in mind.
Our wood grain Shaker cabinet fronts were designed for busy, high-traffic homes like ours. Clad with durable textured thermofoils, this line is compatible with Sektion, Akurum, Godmorgon, and Besta cabinets from IKEA. It's the perfect, practical way to add the warmth of wood to all the rooms of your home.
We have teamed up with Loloi to create a line of rugs that are as affordable as they are beautiful. This collection houses a great mix of traditional and modern rugs, in cottage-y colorways, as well as vintage-inspired beauties that you’ll want to roll out in every room.
We partnered with Stuga on a line of hardwood floors — The Ingrid is really livable, and the color is very neutral. It doesn’t lean warm or cool, it’s that just right in-between. We have really loved putting it everywhere in our house. It’s the best jumping-off point for design, no matter your interior style. In addition to being beautiful, Ingrid is really durable — we have three kids, and we always have a home construction project going on. Ingrid stands up to it all.
