Naturally Inspired, Artistically Designed.

The Alustra Collection of Woven Textures....... only from Hunter Douglas.

Drawing inspiration from design trends and natural woven artistry, the Alustra Collection of Woven Textures was developed as a thoughtfully curated assortment of design-forward fabrics that infuse rooms with a soft yet structured beauty. Like the lustrous silk of a smartly cut blouse or the nubby tweed of a classic chair, the texture and feel of these striking materials add depth and interest to Roman shades, roller shades and skyline Gliding Window Panels.

A sophisticated alternative to woven wood shades or solar screens, the evocative constructions and calends in this edited assortment are crafted with techniques as artistic as they are innovative. The dramatic result makes a statement not only on the windows they dress, but throughout the rooms and homes they enrich and elevate.

With Woven Textures fabrics you can create custom Roman Shades, Roller Shades and Skyline Gliding Window Panels.

This classic form is reimagined with intriguing fabrics, sophisticated design options and advanced operating systems that can be raised and lowered from the top or bottom, imparting a bold linear sensibility. Architectural yet elegant, the result is an elevated design treatment that offers the light-filtering beauty of a traditional screen shade, but with the textural appeal and alluring touch of a soft textile.

Designer Roller Shades - A Great Solution

Read Design

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 were the perfect solution because it correlated with both interior and exterior styles. Because the home is 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.

The Alustra Collection of Roller Shades

An innovative alternative to Woven Woods and Solar Screens, The Alustra Collection of Roller Shades artfully blend unique fibers and sophisticated design to create distinctive light filtering fabrics.

Designer Roller Shades and Screen Shades are one of the most popular window coverings today and they are fun to show because many of the fabrics can be used in a contemporary or traditional setting. Today more people are wanting to keep their view the outdoors. They want privacy when they need it, but also an unobstructed view when they want to see the outside. These shades are the perfect solution and the fact that there are so many fabrics and colors to choose from just makes it fun. You can also easily pair roller shades with stationary panels to finish the design look.

We recently helped a customer in North Dallas who had remodeled their Family Room. She wanted an open view of the back yard as it looked onto a creek. Of course she needed privacy at night but wanted that full open view during the day. We suggested Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Shades. The fabric was called Flaunt and the color Whisper White. This shade has a wonderful texture so when it is down it looks beautiful and when it is up the fabric is tucked into a cassette head rail and you really do not know the shade is there. Hunter Douglas introduced their new Square Cassette at the beginning of April. It gives a very clean look and we love it!

This customer also selected the new PowerView Motorization lift system. Because there are 5 shades in a row, the motorization just made everything easier. Next step will be adding Drapery Stationary Panels.

Hunter-Douglas-Roller-Shades-Frisco.jpg

I love using these Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Shades. This home in Frisco, Texas has a large back yard and we wanted a treatments that would really open up the view.  This Shade did the trick. We used The Urban Loft Organic Cotton fabric. This shade fabric added a little texture and gives a sort filtering light. We also used the PowerView lift system so that the look is very clean with no hanging cords. And we added the PowerView Hub so they can control the shades from their smart phone.  The customer added the app to her iPhone and she now has the ability to control the shades from where ever she is. Eventually we will be adding soft window treatments like draperies to finish the look. This is one of my favorites! We also used the Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Shades in her Master Bedroom. This is a very versatile fabric and is perfect for any room. These also have PowerView and can be controlled by the App on her iPhone.
