What more could this totally PRETTY New England Style bathroom need? It has wood shutters, bead-board and the prettiest topiary wallpaper. The background color in the wallpaper is a cool, soft, mint. Add the warm, terracotta color in the pots and grassy green topiaries...
FABRIC is what's missing! Every room needs at least a little bit of fabric to soften it up, add a layer of texture and absorb some of the ECHO. How about a wide striped silk? I don't recommend using real SILK (like this) in a bathroom unless it's a powder room with no shower or tub (since silk should not get wet and is not meant to handle a lot of moisture or humidity).
I mount all of my VALANCES and SHADES by using these speaker stands that I attach a board to with wing nuts. To that board, I have permanently attached small clamps (not shown). I always love the way the backs of my shades look when they're all complete. I call this the NUTS AND BOLTS view, including the rings, fabric covered weight bar etc. A lot of time, know-how and labor goes into the construction of a properly constructed, professional shade like this.
Do you LOVE it? I would love it if you would share my article, pin it, Tweet it, Facebook like and of course, stick around and search my blog for more articles you may enjoy ;-) ((Here is an article I wrote about a similar style, but in bright vibrant color in Linen Balloon Shades in Bright Linen ))
