Hunter Douglas Architella Trielle Honeycomb Shades

Read Design

The Secret to Year-round Comfort is in the Layers. Introducing Hunter Douglas Architella Trielle.

Customers often ask “what is your best window shade?”

For quite some time Duette Architella Honeycomb Shades have been considered the gold standard of honeycomb shades. We recommend them to customers because of their superior craftsmanship, versatility, style and energy efficiency. People love that Architella Honeycomb Shades provide a high level of energy efficiency. The cell within a cell design reduces energy loss up to 40% at the windows.

 

The new Trielle Window Shades – Perfect for Dallas - Fort Worth

The newest innovation in the Duette Architella line is the Trielle. The new style, with 6 layers of fabric, 5 insulating air pockets and largest 1 1/2″ pleat size, delivers 20% more energy efficiency than the original Architella Shades. Considering that 50% of heating and air conditioning is lost through the windows, having high energy efficient window treatments can significantly reduce heating and cooling costs.

New Colors for Duette Architella Trielle

Hunter Douglas just added 12 more semi opaque and 6 more opaque colors to the Trielle collection. With this line up you are sure to find the perfect shade for your room.

Solera - A Roman Shade Option

Read Design

New fabrics and colors plus the addition of the top down/bottom up operating system makes the Solera Soft Shade from Hunter Douglas an exciting Roman Shade option. A hybrid of Roman and Cellular Shades, Solera Shades offer a contemporary and upscale look at an affordable price.

The top down/bottom up feature is available with the UltraGlide, EasyRise and PowerView Motorization lifting systems. Along with this sleek feature, three new fabrics and 18 on trend colors are a hit with clients. There is a true white and a nice selection of gray tones - today's most popular interior design colors. All of these fabrics are offered in light filtering and room darkening options, making them ideal for many areas in the home. In addition to their unique style, Solera Soft Shades provide practical benefits. The cellular construction filters light while providing energy efficiency and blocking those harmful UV rays. At Hunter Douglas child and pet safety is key, so these shades were constructed with the lift cords on the inside. You can rest easy knowing that your furniture and floors are protected and your children and pets are safe.

This is one of our recent installations of Solera Soft Shades in Frisco, Texas. We used the PowerView Motorization operating system and the fabric we selected was Layla in December White. It adds to the clean, soft contemporary look of the room and can easily be paired with almost any fabric for a drapery. That will be our next project.

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!

Fresh Ideas For Your Home - Design With Earth Tones

Read Design

Earth tones add a natural and harmonious touch to any living space.

Today’s earthy colors are nothing like your mother’s or grandmother’s color palette. They are a thoroughly up-to-date decorating palette.Forget the avocado green shag carpet and harvest gold kitchen appliances you remember from your mother’s or grandmother’s house.Soft and warm, earth tone interior design elements and window coverings from Hunter Douglas take the chill out of a cool autumn evening. These gentle colors make rooms feel cozy and relaxing, never harsh and cold. And since the hues mimic the colors of nature, the blending between indoors and outdoors is seamless, especially if you have large windows.

Earth tone interior design elements and hues blend well together, so they’re not as tricky to combine as other color palettes. In fact, decorating with earth tones makes it easy to coordinate your whole house, without colors clashing between rooms, even if the exact hues in each room are not identical.

For earth tone interior design,
think beige and brow, tan and taupe,
even sage greens, soft rust tones and muted golds – 
the colors of wheat, straw, sand, rocks, trees and soil.

An earth tone palette can be smooth and sophisticated, rough and rustic, or dainty and feminine – it all depends on the tones your select and the style of your furnishings.

You can add white to brighten an earth tone palette, or introduce black to add drama. Then incorporate patterns and textures for added nuance and beauty. Obvious earth tone choices are in upholstered furniture, drapery fabrics, paint and accessories, but you can also use earth tone hues in flooring – wood, stone and carpeting – and in mantles and counter tops.

Come down to earth with your decor this fall. Add earth tones for a natural and balanced look.

Custom Drapery

Read Design

Designing draperies or any window treatment starts with a plan. A designer will ask you a series of questions:

  1. What is the character of the room - traditional, contemporary or transitional?
  2. What colors are you interest in using?
  3. What directions do the windows face?

For this living room in a North Dallas home we started pulling fabrics together with a color scheme of navy and cream and threw in a bright orange accent color. We combined traditional and contemporary fabrics for a popular transitional design. We abolutely love texture, so we added a "faux" vinyl which we plan on using on an upholstered cocktail table.

We used a Silhouette Shade from Hunter Douglas in the Neuveau Candied Coconut fabric on the windows that are on the front of the home. For the drapery panels, we used a navy and cream geometric linen fabric and used a chrome drapery rod with an acrylic finial. The panels framed and softened the window and added a punch of color.

Stop by our shop in Plano to see how our draperies are made, the linings we use and samples of our rods and finials. We will show you why we use the lining we do and educate you on the look of a quality product.
