Mary Ellen Skye took over the Blinds.com Instagram page for a weekend to show followers how she made over her bedroom and bathroom with Classic Roman Shades. She chose Alexandria Silver Sage BDA401 for her bedroom and in Wilmington Ebony for her bathroom. Both shades are cordless and outside mounted.

We’d like to introduce you to @maryellenskye. She’s a Nashville hair stylist, rustic minimalist décor aficionado and amazing insta photographer. She’s taking over our account tomorrow to share her bedroom + bathroom makeover. Follow along at #MESxBlinds and tune in for the giveaway!

This little shop is called All Seasons. Plants are the perfect way to finish a room. I always choose my plants based on the window & amount of sunlight. Think I’ll grab a few of these for the bathroom counter. – @maryellenskye #MESxBlinds Enter the Giveaway! We’re giving away a $100 Blinds.com gift card.

My Classic Roman Shades from @blindsdotcom are here! I got some of these for the window over my kitchen sink a few weeks ago, and loved them so much that I knew I had to do the bathroom too. – @maryellenskye #MESxBlinds Enter the Giveaway!

The color on these shades is Wilmington Ebony which is a dark grey. These are going to give me so much more contrast and pop than the old blinds. – @maryellenskye #MESxBlinds Enter the Giveaway!

Here’s the perfectly finished space with Roman shades from @blindsdotcom. I’m loving how the dark shades compliment the dark counters and grout. And the plant is just what that corner needed.
