The designer look of eco-friendly bamboo blinds

It seems a bit strange, calling these blinds "matchstick blinds," but it's one of their many aliases. They're the last thing you'd want catching on fire in your home, considering their all-natural construction. Also known as bamboo blinds, bamboo shades and woven wood blinds, these shades are made of beautiful, organic materials. Popular patterns usually come in combinations of woods, grasses, reeds, and trendy rattan, sisal, and seagrass. Million dollar decorators everywhere have been touting the high fashion look of adding a touch of sisal to modern decor. These materials are eco-friendly and chic at the same time for green homeowners. By choosing to put them on your windows instead of on your floors – sisal rugs are very popular right now – or elsewhere, you'll get this designer look for less.

Here are a few of my favorite bamboo blinds looks:
