Go organic: Whether you go with bamboo, matchstick, or something in between, the use of natural materials for your window decoration is a functional and fashionable choice rising in popularity. The woven style of these shades provides an elegant way to get some privacy when you want it, while allowing just enough light and visibility to stay in touch with the outside world.
