when i moved into my new apartment, the living room and bedroom had awful brown blinds.  notwithstanding the fact that they were broken, i just hated seeing the brown the moment i walked through the door.

luckily, new custom blinds were fairly inexpensive and easy to install from select blinds.com.  it may be hard to tell in pictures, but this switch has made a huge impact in my new space.
