Tonal Guest Bedroom Gets A Major Upgrade with Blackout Shades
Alivia is a photographer, vlogger and environmental activist who lives in Portland with her pilot husband, Zach, and dog, Boeing. Alivia and Zach built their first home in 2020, and decked it out in her signature minimalist style.
For the guest bedroom, she wanted to create a cozy space for out-of-town guests to relax, and the first order of business was to find blackout shades for the windows. The room had existing shades which weren't blackout, but with a large wall of windows that let in a ton of light, she needed another solution.
With environmentalism top of mind, Alivia is very conscious about what she brings into her home, often relying on thrifting and secondhand goods for furnishings. When she came across SimplyEco Cordless Blackout Cellular Shades, which are made from recycled plastic water bottles, she knew they would be a great fit.
Simply Eco Cellular Shades have a simple accordion fold style and come standard with a clean, cordless lift. Alivia is a lover of natural tones and textures, so after ordering free fabric samples she went with Ivory, a soft beige.
"With the cordless lift, these are so easy to pull down. And, the installation took 10 minutes. It was a breeze!"
