The Mix: Soft London Shades

The Mix: Soft London Shades

Soft London shades are my favorite window treatments. They are simple and functional, yet they add a ton of style to any room. Plus, different fabrics and prints can be complementary or show-stoppers, depending on the look you’re going for. Here are some of my favorite looks I’ve created lately.

From the Richmond Symphony Designer House, this over-scaled floral shade brightens a tight space. See the whole room here.

A printed and embroidered brocade is traditional, but becomes a transitional look in this casual dining room. See the whole room here.

In this sitting area, the subtle tone-on-tone stripe adds sophistication. See the whole room here.


This sky blue sheer shade blends with the pale walls in the bedroom for a smooth and calm effect. Plus, the sheer will give privacy while softly filtering the light.

This textured sheer with a faux bamboo rod is earthy and creates a great, natural effect when combined with the grass cloth walls.
