Soft Sophisticated Shades

Sharon started by updating her foyer window coverings with Classic Roman Shades. After pouring over the hundreds of available fabrics and deciding between flat fold vs soft fold, she settled on Donetta Barley and the seamless flat look.

Here’s what she had to say when they arrived:

“I was very pleased when we hung the shades.  I think they add the perfect modern touch and just the right amount of sophistication to the space.”

Sharon’s 7 Simple Steps To Create A Welcoming Foyer: 

1. Incorporate warm colors.  Peach, gold, and soft yellow are all very inviting.

2. Display family photos and other meaningful things that share a little bit about who you are.

3. Have a place for guests to hang their coats and set their belongings.   Hooks, benches, baskets, coat racks and even chairs make a convenient catch-all.

4. Add warmth through pattern and texture.

5. Set out fresh flowers. You can save money by taking clippings from outdoors.

6. Hang a mirror so that your guests can check themselves before coming or going.

7. Light candles or turn on lamps to create ambiance.
