I am in the middle of a very lengthy home remodel. The first room is almost done—a powder room off the entry way. I’ve chosen grasscloth wallpaper, a contemporary white basin and toilet (which isn’t installed yet), and a sleek vanity. So far I am really happy with the outcome, but I am struggling as to what to do with the window treatment. The window is large and I need something that will offer complete privacy as the window looks out over the front walkway. I hesitate to go with natural fiber blinds—as I think the walls and the vanity are competing as is. I’m thinking of ultimately adding orange or green (chartreuse) accessories. Any suggestions as far as the window coverings or accessories? - Wendy
Hi Wendy, Let me start by saying how beautiful your bathroom looks. It is really lovely. The grasscloth is perfect! Hooray for wallpaper! As far as your window treatment goes- select something that looks good closed. Roman Shades, for example, look much nicer open than closed. Especially in the more modern styles that would go with your decor. I have three suggestions for you on your window treatment. My first thought was a wood shutter. They are perfect closed and would compliment your decor nicely. You could go white to match your wood trim, or contrast it with a tone similar to the console. A horizontal wood blind would give you a similar feel at a lower cost. I like the large 3 inch louver. Solar shades, roller shades or screen shades are also a great option for your room. I showed some examples in this post.
