Enhancing Light, Ensuring Privacy

Read Design

Natural light constantly changes and shifts through the day - as does what we expect from our windows. We want full sun one moment, low light the next, a clear view, then a discreet screen. Our sheers, shades,  blinds and shutters help you balance the light you want with the privacy you need. 

At Hunter Douglas, privacy and light are interrelated. Our designs, in a wide array of materials, colors, and opacities let you control light effectively and customize your privacy throughout the day. And their sheers and other select styles are specially designed to diffuse and draw light deeper into a room helping to illuminate your home naturally.

Sunlight is warm and welcoming, but without ultraviolet (UV) protections over time it can fade and damage a room’s furniture, floor and décor. Hunter Douglas products offer ultraviolet protection to help counter these harmful effects.

Luminette Privacy Sheers

Privacy with softened light. Enjoy subdued light and the privacy of soft draperies on Luminette Privacy Sheers. Fabric vanes rotate for privacy while controlling the light in a room. Perfect for large windows and sliding glass doors, their superior UV protection meets both your decorating and practical needs.

Luminette Installation in North Dallas

We recently installed Luminette Privacy Sheers in a home in the Preston Hollow area of North Dallas.  This room is the customer‘s sitting room and study combination.  The windows are on the front of her home so she definatly needed privacy but she also loves light. The Luminette was a perfect solution for her 3 windows. The Radiant White Fabric looks beautiful against here soft gray walls. The whole look lends itself to a transitional style which is exactly what this customer wanted.

And because her furniture is positioned in front of the windows , we added the PowerView operational system with the PowerView App. This works beautifully especially in the later afternoon when the sure starts to come in those windows. She has her Luminette's set on a schedule so they open and close at preset times during the day - she never has to lift a finger!

Style gets Smarter with Powerview Motorization.

With the introduction of PowerView Motorization, Hunter Douglas is leading the revolution in intelligent home design with the smart window treatments that can adapt to every moment of your day, and make each more beautiful.

Client Work: Soft Luminette Window Treatments For North Dallas Home

Read Design

Luminette_shades-North-Dallas.jpg

Our Customer in Dallas, Texas bought a 1960’s ranch home in the North Dallas area. They did a lot of renovations to the Master Bedroom and Master Bath. They raised the ceiling and put in new larger windows. The customer wanted a soft treatment where she could keep the windows covered but could have light filtering in. The perfect solution was Hunter Douglas Luminette in an Alustra Collection fabric. This is a very sophisticated window treatment with an elegant fabric and the beautiful ripple fold top easily fits her transitional style. She can close the fabric vanes for privacy or keep them open for more natural light and a view. She used the split stack option so when she wants an unobstructed view, the panels will move to either side of the windows to frame them.

The vertical lines help draw the eyes upward, enhancing the tall ceilings. The shades by themselves are intended to give a finished look, however, we want to add some more color and pattern so we will be adding drapery panels and bedding to finish out the room.

Client Work: Amy's Custom Luminette Privacy Sheers - Frisco, TX

Read Design

Amy lives in Frisco, Texas and called us to help her with her sliding doors in her living room. The sliding doors look out onto their pool area so the treatment needed to give them privacy and also the opportunity to open up to the patio. Hunter Douglas Luminette was the perfect solution. We treated each door with a Luminette shade and for convenience to open the shade we used the PowerGlide motorized operating system. They look beautiful and were the perfect solution. But we still needed some color. We added a custom valance to the top and the whole treatment turned about beautiful. See the result below! Luminettes are a beautiful, sophisticated window treatment that is perfect for a traditional room but can also be used in a contemporary setting. You can easily add drapery panels or a valance for color. And they are perfect for any room!

Think Marble for a Marvelous Addition to Your Home

Marble adds a classic and elegant touch.

Marble is a natural material, created when sedimentary rock has been subjected to great heat and pressure from the earth over many years, resulting in a durable and beautiful stone. And marble has been used as a decorative and durable material almost since the beginning of civilization.

So many beautiful looks in marble are available - from the simplest, pure white to wildly colored patterns of blue, gold, green and more. Some choices even have a sparkle. Carrara marble from Italy is the most popular today, with its white background and greyish veins.

Marble is most often used in kitchens and baths, for flooring, countertops, showers and sometimes even walls. But there's so much more you can use marble for. Think hearths and fireplace surrounds, table tops, small pieces of furniture and even small decorative pieces like cutting boards, Kleenex boxes, lamps and coasters.

Add a touch of refinement and sophistication to your home this fall with marvelous marble!

Abstract Art - It's an engaging element that starts a conversation

According to the famous Tate Gallery in London, abstract art is art that does not attempt to represent an accurate depiction of a visual reality, but instead uses shapes, colors, forms and gestural marks to achieve its effect.

Much of the artwork that's being created today is abstract art, so it's an easy element to add to your home. It can be fashioned from most any medium, from water color to oil paint, sculpture to collage, and more. It comes in almost any size and shape. Abstract art can be serene or edgy, colorful or monochromatic.

What's fun about abstract art is that you can make up your own mind about what it shows. Even though the art doesn't explicitly portray reality, often the brushstrokes or composition show movement, energy and emotion. Abstract art creates a feeling.

Add a piece of abstract art this fall. It will pull a room together beautifully and start a conversation.
