1. Curtains

2. Roman shades

"Roman shades are practical alternatives to heavy curtain drapery. They can easily be pulled up and down and can add elegance to any room. Roman shades work best in Shabby Chic-style and country homes, but they can also work in contemporary homes. 


3. Venetian blinds
