Once again it seems our favorite window treatments for 2016 are Designer Roller Shades and Designer Screen Shades from Hunter Douglas. I do think the reason for this is the fact that they are so versatile. Designer Roller Shades are a perfect solution for many homes – contemporary to traditional and anywhere in between. With so many fabrics, colors and textures to choose from, they will not only enhance your windows but will help insulate your home keeping it warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
Roller Shades at the Lake
Recently one of our loyal clients stopped by the showroom and asked us to help her cover the windows on her new lake house at Cedar Creek Lake just South East of Dallas. They have a beautiful home on deep water and their view is outstanding. Her home has a traditional feel outside, however, the interior is more contemporary. Designer Roller Shades by Hunter Douglas was the perfect solution because it correlated with both interior and exterior styles. Because the home is an open concept, we used the same shades for all the windows. We selected the fabric Pure Earth in the Arbor color because it picked up all the neutral colors in the home. We also opted for the PowerView Motorization Lift System with the Hub to allow her to control the shades from her iPhone – whether she is there or not. With the Hub, you can set the scene and program exactly where you want the shades to stop. As you can see they look beautiful.
“Read Design, you did it again! As I pull into the neighborhood I open up the App and hit the button and by the time I walk in my house the shades are up and I am officially on vacation! The view is absolutely beautiful”
Designer Screen Shades by Hunter Douglas
If the Designer Roller Shades aren’t what you are looking for, you might consider the updated line of Hunter Douglas Designer Screen Shades. There are so many new fabrics and colors to see! The Designer Screen Shades provide excellent UV protection all while allowing you to enjoy the view to the outdoors. The Alustra Collection of Screen and Roller shades by Hunter Douglas is another place to find beautiful options. With the fabrics and hardware, this will give a more contemporary look.
Drapery Panels Added to Designer Screen Shades
We recently helped a client in North Dallas update her Ranch Style Home. She wanted the look to be more transitional and with her furniture, that was easy to do. We picked up the old carpet and put in a light wood floor and painted the walls a neutral tan. Now for her windows, we used Designer Screen Shades by Hunter Douglas called Umbria with a 3% opacity. With this shade, we were able to give them the amount of privacy they desired while still allowing them to view the outdoors. We used the Custom Clutch lift system because we knew we could hide it behind the drapery panels. For the curtains, we used a neutral silk Dupioni from the Kravet Couture line of fabrics in a fawn color and installed them floor to ceiling to give the room some height. We are very pleased with the finished room.
Screen Shades in Broken Bow, Oklahoma
Last weekend we traveled up to the beautiful area of Broken Bow, Oklahoma to install some Designer Screen Shades from Hunter Douglas. In this cabin in the woods, privacy is not the issue. In fact, this client said they wouldn’t have covered the windows at all if the sun didn’t shine through and make the room very hot. Screen shades were the only solution! We kept the stunning view of the forest while protecting the interiors from harmful UV rays and keeping the room nice and cool in the summer. Now they can sit and watch the wildlife roam around.
