Of all the colors, Black

image
I like black. While I love color too, there is something about black being basic, classic, elegant, and perhaps a basis for a neutral. Plus when used in a specific way, can become high contrast. It stands out from the crowd. It is, of course, all the colors mixed together.

IMG_3503.JPG Yet contemporary too.

Design Source: DaVill Blinds

I was recently looking for a window treatment company for one of my online design projects and came across DaVill Blinds: a competitively priced site for shades, shutters, and blinds backed by the trust of two former interior designers. Given their motto is they never have a sale, I felt the stability of pricing and being able to buy when ready (vs the sometimes rush to buy my clients get to score a sale). In other words, a great resource for clients who may implement the selections on their own time and budget.

DaVill offers various types of blind options, such as these basswood versions.

Blackout roller shades (great for bedrooms) come in a variety of colors.

Solar shades, like the above, along with other cellular and roller shades are available too.

And blinds that are available in a range of color options, metallics too
