Hunter Douglas fabrics offer custom styling for your home.

Choosing the fabric for your custom roman shades is exciting! You get to decide on the perfect color and texture to complement your home design. Our roman shades are available in colors ranging from daring, bold hues to the calmest of neutrals. And they come in textures that can provide your space with everything from woven warmth to airy freshness.


Step 2: Style

Did you know that there are two styles of our Vignette Modern roman shades? Most people are familiar with romans as stacking shades. When you adjust the shades open, the beautiful fabric folds stack up neatly under the headrail.

What you might not know is that modern innovation has introduced romans that roll. When you open rolling-style custom roman shades, the flowing folds roll right up into the headrail. Which style is better for your unique space? That all depends on the fit you need and the features you want.

Step 3: Features

Selecting the features of your custom roman shades is one of the best parts in the whole design process. You get to transform your home and life with the benefits you deserve. Which features might you love? Here are just a couple:

Dual shade function on rolling-style Vignette romans lets you enjoy filtered light and blackout on the same window! A light-filtering front shade diffuses soft light throughout your space. And when you need darkness, a secondary room-darkening shade rolls right into place.


Step 4: Operation

How you operate your custom roman shades is totally up to you. The best system for you will fit your lifestyle and the way you plan to use your shades. If manual operation is ideal, you’ll appreciate our cordless and cord-safe options. These Solera Soft romans are another beautiful option for your home with sculpted fabrics.
