Linear Roman blinds or plain roller blinds are perfect for pure, modern architecture, and are enough to provide a screen against excess light or prying eyes. Significantly more lush is a decorative style enhanced with colour-coordinated curtains. The roller blind is then simply pulled down for darkness, whilst the curtains remain in their positions at the side. This protects the curtain fabric. Such ensembles create a wonderfully atmospheric feel in historical surroundings with large, traditional windows.
An even more nostalgic effect is achieved when Roman blinds are decorated with scallops and edging at the bottom. For a romantic effect, balloon shades can be sewn from fine, soft materials. These beautiful effects are best on their own, without any additional curtains.
