What would you think of if I said the term "roller shade" to you? Maybe you're like me and an image pops into your head. It's an off white, plastic-coated fabric shade. The fabric is fraying on the sides. Said shade either requires the lightest of touches (lest you are interested in getting swatted in the face) or doesn't roll up at all after years of misuse and neglect. Sound about right? Well, if you've been avoiding roller shades as your window treatments because of their old reputation, I'm here to ask you to reconsider.
Imagine my surprise when I came across these roller shades from The Shade Store, maker of custom window treatments for over 60 years. They changed my mind entirely about roller shades. Just file this one under "I Guess I Was Wrong: Roller Shade Edition." They're a great vehicle for color and graphic interest and easily changed should your decorating style change. Since little C just asked for the walls in her room to be more pink, maybe I can use roller shades to inject the color!
How would you use roller shades? Do tell!
