Think you have to be stuck with boring window coverings? Forget that idea! See how I styled these cute window blinds in my home office!
When decorating my office/craft room, I had a heck of a time trying to decide how to dress my two big windows, and then I remembered that I loved using the cordless blinds from Blinds.com. You may remember my terrifying story of how my oldest son almost died hanging from a blind cord when he was 2, and how I don’t ever even consider buying anything that my kids can get tangled in from the windows now.
I was thinking of just putting up curtains as I have done in the rest of my house but that presented a couple of problems. I love the light that comes through the windows it makes my room all light and bright, but I have my computer monitor in front of one of them and I needed that window to have coverings that block the sun during the afternoon hours. The other window faces the street, and sometimes I want privacy but I don’t want to block the light. So I needed something that matched, and that I could have one filter and one block. I wanted to be able to open and shut them easily and I didn’t want anything fluttery that the cat would think I installed just for her. I needed some cute window blinds and I knew just who to go to for help!
The design we finally went with was the Premier Roman Shades in Broad Stripe Cadet BWB-8102 on Blinds.com. They went up in a snap. The hubs said they were super easy to install, it took him like 10 minutes to have both up and ready to go.
I am so thrilled with these blinds! They are suuuuuper cute, they give my room a candy shop/ice cream shop feel, or maybe a cute food truck? I don’t care which, I just know that they make me supremely happy to look at. Also? They perfectly check off everything on my wishlist!
As I said, I required them to be cordless, and these are just that. You just pull them to close them and push them up to open them. They fold into perfect pleats with no needed help from me. They have a small valance at the top that gives it a nice clean look when they are down. I just adore them.
These ones over my desk block the sun perfectly and I am able to see my monitor at any time during the day.
These ones still let plenty of light in but I can craft in my underwear if I wanted…I don’t want to, but if I wanted to I could.
They are like the accessories that make the outfit in this room, the bling if you will. So much prettier than cheap-o plastic blinds, and way more safe than anything with cords. What do you think? Do you love them too?
