About the Hunter Douglas Design Studio

The Design Studio is your place to truly craft a unique treatment that will fit your décor and style needs to a T. Here you can find fabrics that add drama, depth, and style. And don’t worry if you aren’t a designer yourself—the experts at Hunter Douglas offer suggestions for coordinating with tone-on-tone looks for neutrals, colors, or textures. They also suggest contrasts with color or patterns, to bring out an accent color in the room, to highlight a color from a patterned undertreatment, or to add a color that you just love. Plus, you can top off your creation with your own curated hardware and accessories, giving you a fully rounded look.

Roman Shades From the Design Studio

The Roman Shade is simple yet alluring—it’s one piece of fabric that folds as the cord is pulled to lift it. When you customize your Design Studio Roman Shades, you can choose from three looks:

  • Flat fold. The most traditional style, the flat fold has no horizontal seams across the front; they’re simply one big piece of fabric that lies flat when lowered and creates folds when raised. These are well-suited to fabrics with large, bold patterns or stripes.
  • Batten front. This option adds a contemporary twist, with horizontal pleats (or battens, also known as tunnels) that have a dowel sewn in at regular intervals. The decorative pocket adds dimension and visual interest. These shades are well-suited to solid or textured fabrics.
  • Batten back. Another variation on the flat Roman Shade, this version has the battens in the back, creating a tailored look when lowered and offering traditionally defined folds when raised. These shades are great for contemporary or transitional décor and are well-suited to solid fabrics or subtle patterns or textures.

Additional Benefits

You can add a lining (even in a blackout fabric for a bedroom) to hide the lift strings, control light, and add to the insulating effect at the window. Also consider adding a coordinating flat valance, side panels, or drapery to complement your Roman Shades. Plus, with the Design Studio, you’ll find many fabric options you can buy in Accents by the Yard, so you’ll have extra fabric to create finishing touches such as throw pillows.
