Tell Me Tuesday…BAM or SLAM!?

BAM! for Painted Ceilings!

This week’s topic request is from Joanne @ Homestyling 101.  She would like to know how you feel about treating your windows with a combination of natural woven shades and drapes.

This is a trend that I have seen everywhere, I even use this combination throughout our home.    How do you feel about pairing natural woven shades and drapes…

Are you a fan!?

Are there any design trends you would like discussed on BAM or SLAM? I am always looking for new topics.

  4. Totally for it – Bam! It reminds me of different homes I have grown up in – particularly in the tropics and it is popular with clients. So many choices as far as patterns available today and the effect with the sunlight coming through is warm and inviting to a space. It adds a natural element and texture, too.

  5. I’m giving it a BAM for sure. But I don’t think it’s a trend – to me it’s a classic design element that adds a layered appearance to rooms and makes them feel more complete. It also allows you to spend less on fabric for the panels. If you choose a pricey fabric, you can always do a fixed panel and get the privacy with the wooden shade. This is my fave window covering pair for sure!

  6. Definitely a BAM! I love this look and have it in some of our rooms. The plan is to include it in the living room next! :) These inspiration pics are beautiful!

  8. yes! BAM for me! I unfortunately dont have them in my home and not entirely sure I could convince the hubs on them- but in my “home in my head” I have them !! ;-)

  9. Yes, it’s a bam! – and a surface too often ignored!

  11. I think it’s a definite BAM if it’s coordinated with the rest of the look in the room.

  12. Elizabeth, you always come up with the best photos! Bam to the combination.


  13. This one is easy…total BAM! from me. I recently added them behind some DIY drapes in my own family room…love the texture they add.

  14. Love a painted ceiling! So, BAM for me. In fact, I’ve been planning on painting my kids’ bathroom white with a blue ceiling and adding crown molding and board and batten. I also love drapes with woven blinds, I have it in my dining area, it’s a great, affordable look that anyone can do.

  15. Definitely a BAM for me! I love the look! That last picture is gorgeous, the colors are fabulous!

  16. I had to look and see if anyone gave this a slam – and that’s a no! I love this look so much, and I too think it’s a classic look that doesn’t come and go with other trends. Love love love it!

  17. I love the look; I think it gives the room a nice natural element!!

  18. BAM! I wouldn’t say for every space, but it adds texture and another element to your window treatments.

  19. Elizabeth, I have been going through your DIY posts and I love them all! I am a huge fan of woven blinds with drapes. I really think it brings a room up to date, even formal rooms ( somehow). Love painted ceilings, too!

  20. I’m going to go against the trend and say SLAM for the woven blinds. I’ve seen how snaggly and faded woven treatments can get and they don’t seem to stand up as well to frequent use

  21. Huge fan! BAM!

    I can’t believe I am about to do this—but slam. I do actually like the look–but I am “slamming” it because I don’t think it is something that I would actually use. I would not use this mostly because I LOVE natural light. Even though I do like the look in these pictures–I think this style is too bulky for me. So slam. :(

  24. I love a layered window!
    B-A-M–all day long!

  28. Absolutely LOVE the woven shades with drapes!!!

  29. Those are really awesome photos and the house looks really clean and relaxing.. You would want to stay here forever with the whole family..

  30. It is a great day of my life and never forget it down to all life.Really amazing.

  31. Bam bam bam! It just gives a room that extra layer to finish it off! My one stipulation is that it should be done in a really light room with a big-ish window.

  32. Another BAM!! Perfect texture, layering, interest!
