Roman shades are just so much chicer than mini-blinds, especially when the shades are trimmed out with ribbon. Here are some great examples of detailed shades:

I'm hoping to stop by M&J in New York this weekend during our visit to find some grass green ribbon trim for the shades in our guest bedroom. I'm thinking I'll try to recreate the shades in the room designed by Katie Ridder. Thoughts? Does anyone know how easy/hard this project may be?
