What is the difference between blinds and shades? You may be familiar with the terms blinds or shades but y ou may be wondering what the main differences are between each. What are the pros and cons of each? Here are a few tips to help you narrow down the selection process... Basically, blinds are window coverings made up of individual slats. They can be completely raised for an unobstructed view or, when lowered, the slats can be rotated to let in more or less light. Shades, on the other hand, are made from single panels of fabric or woven wood rather than slats, so they can only be raised or lowered to achieve light control and privacy. Blinds come in both horizontal and vertical slats or louvers and have the primary function of controlling the amount of light coming through. There are many types of shades with unique functional benefits from light diffusion to energy efficiency, along with a variety of design options and much more. So What Do I Choose? Blinds? Shades?

Decorating in many shades of gray adds layered elegance. Gray is a versatile and sensuous color to include in your home decor. Gray is a very flexible interior design color because it comes in so many variations; in fact, there are probably at least fifty shades of gray! People most often use gray as a neutral, instead of beige, white or cream. You can go cool or warm, depending on the version of gray you select. There are so many shades, and very few of them are simply a mix of black and white. Usually gray includes tones of blue, pink, green, yellow or other colors. Gray can come in varying intensities too, from the lightest dove gray to dark steel gray. And don’t just think of gray as a solid, smooth color when you use it in design. Part of the beauty of gray is in its texture; think wood grain in flooring and furniture, texture in tweed or silk fabrics, and matte or lacquer finish in paint. Gray is subtle and goes well with a lot of colors, letting the oth
