Cotton Cream Plain Hem Cottage Stencil

We ordered a roller shade from you last year and installed it in our
remodeled kitchen. Our kitchen was featured in a short video about
food safety and that shoot made me realize I had never sent you a photo!
Here's your shade - note the excellent compatibility with art tiles
from New Zealand. The general shape and colors are so alike that we
are very happy with the result. Thanks!

Portland Oregon

Our work in Florida

Simple Cotton Bone Shades with a plain hem and Craftsman pull

More Photos From Canada

Our work in Canada

This home in Canada features narrow high windows. A full image of the Three Leaf Stencil would not work; we decided to do an "extraction" of the Three Leaf Stencil. The completed composition flatters both the window size and the room.

Portland Oregon

The owners of this beautiful Craftsman home
chose to treat all their windows with shades
from The Handwerk Shade Shop. In the kitchen the Cotton Ecru is perfect..more photos to follow
-Many thanks to our wonderful clients Kelly and David for letting us be a part of your home-
