My Love Affair with The Shade Store

When you are very pregnant and running a long distance renovation from across the country, design resources who make your life easier are everything!  Cue The Shade Store! They made the process of selecting and installing window treatments so easy, and the result could not have been more beautiful.

I started with a general idea of what I wanted going into the design process. Dramatic floor to ceiling drapes to accentuate the double height ceilings in the living room, dining, and master bedroom area and shades for my other bedrooms.  I knew I wanted linen fabrics, and The Shade Store has a great selection of different weights, blends, and colors.

After perusing their beautiful library of swatches and a quick trip to their LA showroom, I ended up choosing tailored pleat drapes in oatmeal colored linen sheers for my living room and master bedroom and flat Roman shades in Ivory linen the other bedrooms. Once I made my selections, The Shade Store took care of everything from measurements to installation, and were even kind enough to send a technician over to do a second round of steaming upon request.  I honestly could not be happier with the finished product.
