Embrace Fall with Woven Wood Shades

Fall has officially arrived. The leaves are turning vibrant shades of red, orange, and yellow, and the air is feeling crisp. With this season comes the reminder that the window holidays are just over the horizon, and now is the perfect time to get your window treatments in shape for holiday guests. The designers at Creative Hands love using woven wood shades to usher in the autumnal transition, and we’re excited to share our ideas with you.

Woven Wood Shades as Decor

The natural weaves of Provenance® Woven Wood Shades look outstanding year-round, but something about natural textures looks great paired with traditional fall decor, including pumpkins, plush throw blankets, and deep tones of red, orange, and caramel colors. Woven shades add natural warmth and visual interest to any space. The nubby textures of rattan and grasses make a spectacular backdrop for gatherings of friends and family, and optional liners allow you to increase your control over light and privacy.

Woven Woods in the Living Room

With more than 80 color and fabric options, there’s a woven shade to complement any style of living room from rustic to refined. Natural shades pair beautifully with drapery. You can keep an earthy vibe with linen or light cotton panels or go bold with luxe silks. The naturally occurring variations of the organic materials filter light gently, and give a unique touch to each shade. Once you’re shades and room decor are good to go, raise them up, light a pumpkin-scented candle and enjoy watching the leaves fall.

Decorating the Dining Room

Woven wood shades coordinate well with the wood furniture in a dining room. All finishes, from the lightest oak to the darkest cherry can be complemented with the textures and colors of woven shades. As a standalone window covering, light woven shades look their best in a more casual dining setting. Adding a set of drapes will make for a polished appearance if your aesthetic is more formal. Arrange a centerpiece or tablescape inspired by fall, with mums and gourds to complete the look.

Shades for the Kitchen

The kitchen is another room where woven shades never fail to shine. Mnay people typically spend several waking hours a day in this room and you need surfaces to be attractive and easy to care for. The utilitarian aesthetic given by the major appliances in a kitchen practically begs for the softness and warmth of woven shades. Choose the Top-Down/Bottom-Up control system to enjoy more natural light without sacrificing privacy while preparing those family dinners. Place some large plants (we personally love birch branches or pampas grass) in a tall vase on the counter to add a touch of fall without disturbing the flow of the room.
