hardware sources for roll-up blinds?
Hubby and I were intending to put roman shades in the new bedroom. Then I thought to hold my E-Bay find – a roll of hand-painted kimono silk up in there, and we both went “That’s it!” It should work out just perfectly – the kimono silk is around 14″ wide, and the windows are 16″ wide – so with a one inch trim around to protect the edges of the silk it should be elegant. The problem being that the irises are painted on to be at the bottom of the kimono, so they would be at the bottom of the roman shades, and all folded up unless the shade were all the way closed. However, if I do roll up blinds, then the irises would show if the blinds were only partway down.
So where can I get roll up blinds that are only 16″ wide? In several different lengths to six foot. Suggestions about how to mount the silk onto the blinds?
