10 years ago we were busy helping a customer in Plano with their new Town Home. They were lucky to have a great view of a creek from a large window in their kitchen , but it was the only window in the living area other than a couple second story skylights. Their design was more of the Old World look. The Kitchen cabinets were dark, the wood floors were dark and the paint was a golden color. The home was pretty… just dark.

A few months ago the new owner called us for a consultation. “What would you do to give this home a more transitional look” was her question. Our answer. “Paint and that includes the trim”. We also wanted her the paint the kitchen cabinets and that included taking off an Old World Appliqué on the vent. Also new paint on the Fireplace , change out the granite in the Kitchen, new lighter rug and change out the Old World lighting fixtures.

Wow what a difference!! We had the trim painted Extra White and used a very light gray on the wall. I think this changed the look of the room the most. She had the cabinets painted the same Sherwin Williams Extra white. And we changed out the back splash and counter tops. Also many of the globes on the lighting fixtures and added a 72” contemporary ceiling fan.

Now for the finishing details. Those include hardware for the Kitchen cabinets. We are also adding a New Roman Shade for the Window and Door. We are using Vignette by Hunter Douglas. The fabric is the new Cascade Fabric in the soft gray fabric and we will use PowerView lift motorization. One reason Vignettes are so good in situations where the patio right on the other side is their clean construction. There are no rings and cords showing to the outside like many Roman Shades. 

We will also be adding a rug from Loloi rugs. It is a contemporary design using grays, whites, and blues.

We were all pleased with the finished look. Let us know what you think. If you are looking to update your home, gives us a call. We would love to help you get a new light and bright design for your home.

We service Dallas to Fort Worth and all areas inbetween including Colleyville, Grapevine, Westlake, Dallas, Highland Park, Prosper etc.


Silhouette Window Fashions - Light Perfected

Read Design

A Room is more beautiful when you design with light. Light speaks to you, it makes you happy. A room filled with light feels like home. When light flows through Hunter Douglas Silhouette window shadings, with the Signature S-Vane, the light and the room are transformed.  Harsh rays from the sun are softened and diffused into stunning lightscapes, enhancing the beauty of your surroundings.

For over two decades, Silhouette window shadings have been engineered and refined to create beautiful, pleasing light. No other sheer window treatment can match our attention to detail, fabric selection, exclusive operating systems and lifetime limited warranty.  Silhouette window shadings let you see your home in a more perfect light.

HARSH GLARE WITHOUT SHADES

INFINITE VARIATIONS OF LIGHT

Throughout the day, light moves. It gains strength and depth as it washes across a room, changing your needs for privacy or protection from harsh rays. Fortunately, Silhouette Windows Shadings are designed for optimal living with light. Simple tilt the vanes to reduce glare, add privacy or create a mood. Regardless of vane position, when the shadings are lowered the sheer fabric provides UV protection for your furnishings.

Silhouettes can be ordered with all of the lift systems including the NEW PowerView Motorization. This advance motorized operating system controls your shadings with the artfully designed Pebble Remote or your mobile device via out PowerView App. Easily adjust your Silhouette window shadings at will or schedule them to operate automatically.

A recent Customer from The Keller area contacted us. We scheduled an appointment via one of our Mobile Showrooms. She wanted a New Look for her Family and Breakfast Room which faces southwest. We suggested 4” Silhouette in the Nouveaufabric.  The 4” louver size will maximize the back view which is beautiful and the Silhouette will control hard west UV rays.   This fabric has a little texture which I thought was needed. We had her walls painted a soft Gray and the Candy Coconut color provides a beautiful contrast. We also added PowerView Motorization with the Smart Phone Hub. Because she works late some evenings we thought this would make it easy to control .

Eventually we will be adding Drapery Panels and will be helping her with Reupholstery.
