The window fashions discussed here will carry you into 2012 with style.

To start, aluminum blinds are becoming more chic and more popular as downtown loft style continues to rage in popularity. The look of a sleek, stark loft that combines concrete and metal with softer textiles is the design concepts behind this surge in aluminum blind popularity. They're a way to add a little metal to your decor without going out and purchasing a pricey piece of furniture, like a shelf or bedframe. Toss up a few aluminum blinds in Brushed Aluminum or Raw Umber. It'll save you lots of money and keep your home looking fresh.

The next hot item on your Fall shopping list should be woven wood shades, also known as bamboo blinds. These days, you're recycling, conserving power and water, and trying to be more eco-conscious, not because anyone else told you to, but because it's the right thing for you and your family to do. There are eco-friendly window treatments too; woven wood shades fit that bill. They're made from recyclable materials like reeds, grasses, sisal, rattan, and of course, bamboo, which you can easily and safely dispose of if you ever decide to get rid of them. The materials used to make them are sustainable. These woven wood shades make a beautiful statement, bringing a touch of nature into your home.
