The Roman color is a lined or unlined amount of drapery fabric sewn to inner rings for operability. When drawn to the vertical position, a Roman color creates a string of concentrated folds. Whether used in conjunction with a different window treatment or left by itself, these flexible colors have reigned supreme for a long time, accommodating everyone’s personal design style, from shabby-chic and conventional all the way to modern. Have a peek at some of my favorite uses to see if any could be an opportunity within your interior spaces.
