Today's roller blinds and roman shades in organic linen fabrics go well in a high end designer
room, unlike Grandmas blinds, they add an element of beauty and function to the room.
|Linen adds a nice texture as shown above|
Additional things to consider - the addition of drapes with blind will "soften" the room,
absorb sound, help with temperature control, and will make the room look larger. See below.

A decorative fabric valance allows you to "hide" blinds.
Woven blinds add a new texture to the room, see photos below.
For a clean metropolitan look, consider linen sheers instead of blinds, with these great new features:
- Sheers come in 120" width (for no seams).
- Natural organic linen (instead of a polyester blend) goes well in a transitional setting
- Sheers can be partially opened or closed, for light filtering and privacy control.
- Sheers come in a variety of colors, such as taupe, oatmeal, and many off white tones.
