Don't Pull The Blinds Yet

It seems the world must be telling me something since I keep coming across blind ideas. Love these from Martha Stewart...Above the shade is stenciled and below is wallpaper.
Not a roller shade but I do like the simplicity of these cafe curtains.
This is actually leather. I included it because I love the use of brightly colored leather in an unexpected place.
Again, not shades but I do love how whimsical the pom pom fringe is on these sheers...
Okay and one more non shade but I can't pass up panels with stenciling along one side.
More shade ideas posted here and here.

You NEED to do this stencil project!! If you can't find a room for a roller/Roman shade I will send you one for one of the boys rooms ;)

I have a set of four plain white panels that I need to dress up-thanks for inspiring me today.

I love, love the fringe on the drapes in the yellow room... why not use fringe all over your drapes!? This look is whimsical and lovely. Thanks for sharing!

Love the Martha Stewart blind, and ball fringe is just so fun and girly! I actually just finished off a tablecloth with some. Beautiful collection of pics! Thanks for sharing.

I have been loving some good ole roller shades lately. So much less fussy than the pleated shades.

I used to have roller shades growing up (wish they had been pretty like these!) all I remember is pulling them and they would fly up! Funny, I'm sure they have come a long way in function too...

Wow, okay, in general I'm not a huge fan of the pom poms...but that curtain is *fantastic* with the double row of them! Brilliant. I'm a big fan of that roller shade too...so much you can do with those babies!
