Wake Up Your Windows

Read Design

FullSizeRender.jpg

We love working on jobs where we can use our imaginatio! This is one project that was a lot of fun and where the window treatments really added to the design of the room. For most of the windows we used Plantation Shutters with 4 1/2” louvers. But for this Family Room we decided that all we would use at the windows would be custom drapery panels. We wanted a light fabric because the patio has a large overhang and not much sun gets in. On the back windows in the Breakfast Room and Study we will be using a simple roller shade with an organic feel made by Hunter Douglas. These shades will give protection from the sun but when the sun moves to the west, up will go the shades. And everything is in a light bright fabric. We all are very happy with how everything looks. And as you can see there are many windows so our customer decided to use the PowerView Motorization Lift system. This will be very convenient once the sun is overhead and then again in the evening.

Stop by one of our Hunter Douglas Gallery’s - one in Plano and one in Southlake. Our Designers can show you all of the newest products along with the lift systems. They can show you and explain the exciting PowerView lift system and explain haw it can connect with “Alexa” and other programs. And if you love the softness of draperies, we can help you can up with a design and fabric selections that will Wake up Your Windows.

You can find Hunter Douglas products and Custom Draperies at Read Design in Plano and in Southlake. We service the following areas- Frisco, Celina, Prosper, Dallas, Highland Village, Richardson, Plano, Allen, McKinney, Southlake, Grapevine, Colleyville, Fort Worth, Trophy Club, Rockwall, Rowlett, Highland Park, Preston Hollow and everywhere in between.

A Southlake, Texas Shutter Installation - Lighting Up A Room With Style And Quality

We recently helped a customer in Southlake who had stopped by our Hunter Douglas Gallery. She knew she wanted shutters in her new family room and kitchen because these rooms face west. We showed her Hunter Douglas NewStyle shutters and she loved the quality and feel of the shutter as well as the ease of cleaning. They are at a great price point too! We then made an appointment for an in home consultation and measure. We suggested that we use the 4 1/2" louver size because of how it opens up the room to the outside. We used the Bright White color because of the perfect match to the window sills. 

The shutters were installed a few weeks later and they not only looked beautiful, they also helped with the client's energy efficiency, solar heat control and UV protection. The Hunter Douglas NewStyle Shutters were a perfect solution for these rooms. A few weeks later we were back adding shutters in her Master Bedroom and Bath. The Master Bath was my favorite. I love this look!

NewStyle Shutters In Frisco, Texas

For this client in Frisco, Texas we installed Hunter Douglas NewStyle Shutters throughout her new Shaddock Home. These shutters are custom crafted for each window. We used the standard Z frame and they all looked beautiful. Our client was happy with the high quality standards and the feeling of comfort that the home now has. We used 4 1/2" louvers to eccentuate the large windows and give the most view through to the outside. We added a divider rail so the bottom portion and top portion can operate independently providing privacy when needed and maximum light control up top. The front tilt rods gave the traditional shutter look that the client loved and makes her new house feel like home.

Getting Started with Hunter Douglas Window Fashions

Read Design

Dressing windows artfully and bringing light into a room beautifully can be done in many ways. Sheers and Shadings are one approach to controlling light: Shutters and blinds, quite another. Soft folds offer a softer look, while crisp pleats and flat roller shades feel more contemporary. Consider, too, how you live in a room and how important privacy is to you. Then, factor in your personal aesthetic; from sleek and contemporary to rich and traditional. You will find that whatever your desires, we have styles for every taste, every room, every moment.

Designer Roller Shades

Sophisticated but uncomplicated.  For a look that’s both custom and classic, Designer Roller Shades offer a clean appearance in a beautiful range of 82 designer fabrics, along with a variety of designer options and operating systems. Over half of these fabric styles are offered in the Harmony Program - choose the same fabrics for your vertical and horizontal window fashions when you combine Designer Roller Shades with Skyline Gliding Window Panels.

 

We recently helped a customer who came into our Plano location. She was building a new home in far north west Plano. After showing her all of the products and after listening to how she lives and what her needs are we determined that her style is more contemporary. She wants as much light as possible and will keep the shades up and will lower them only in the evening.

We showed her one of our favorite, Designer Roller Shades by Hunter Douglas in the fabric Urban Loft, color – Organic Cotton. It was the perfect solution to the wall of windows in her new Family Room. We also showed her the PowerView Motorization System, and since she has a total of 4 windows and 1 door, the convenience of the PowerView motor was too good to pass up. These shades provide a clean and classic look. They give her privacy when she needs it and they open her room to the beautiful outdoors during the day.

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.
