    What interior style do you have, or plan to create in the room? Romantic, retro, classic, oriental, contemporary? The hint: it depends on the mood that you decide to create in the room. For example, if you like to live in exotic tropical garden, you may choose an exotic or oriental style and select floral roman shades with Hawaiian motives, or with decorative oriental patterns. You can also mix different styles and motives if you like mix-and-match style.

  • What is the purpose of this room? Is it bedroom, living room, kids or baby room? Choose your floral pattern accordingly. In the living room it can be more elegant, in the bedroom – more informal. For baby’s room you can select fabric with small decorative elements, like stylized flowers, stripes, dots and themed motives in soft pastel, or bright colors.


  • What size is your room and what amount of light do you have in it?

    If the room is not very large, don’t choose big-size floral patterns, - it will look overwhelming in the tiny room. Go to small-size ornament instead. If you still prefer big flowers – select the fabric with larger spaces around motives, it will give your eyes a feeling of lightness. If the room is light and sunny, you can choose a fabric with dark colors to block extra amount of light. But if the room is dark, you would better go to a light, maybe pastel or natural colored fabric with delicate floral patterns.

  • What roman shades style do you prefer? Large-sized floral motives don’t look very impressive when the fabric drapes in many small folders. Therefore, if you dream about Balloon, Austrian and London roman shades choose fabric with small- or medium-size motives. Flat roman shades look great with almost every fabric patterns, so you can select any motives you like.

    You can match your floral roman shades to other décor in the room. For example, your window shades can reflect the ornament of your wallpapers, rug, or wall décor. You can by or make decorative pillows from the same fabric, or with similar motives.

    Tip: If you want something special, create flat roman shades from your favorite floral fabric with solid colored border around – then, when you lower these shades, they will look like a beautiful picture.

    When you consider which fabric to choose, order several fabric swatches and hang them over the window. Look at them during the day and in the evening, when the electric light turned on. Do you like the look of it? If you plan to create balloon roman shades, try to drape the piece of fabric. Does it drape easily? If not, maybe you need to choose a softer one, or to select another style of roman shades – flat, for example. Anyway, for best result, it’s better to try several types of fabrics with different floral patterns before you make a final decision about your roman shades. Then you will enjoy your beautiful window dressing for many years.
