I love that they're so customizable. They're great for spaces that use a neutral palette because you can easily add a pop of color. You can also stick to neutral tones if you prefer.

Another great reason to go with roman shades is that they're child-safe, if you order them cordless. They're also great light blockers, so when they're lowered, you'll keep the sunlight out completely and maintain your privacy.
