March Into Spring......

Read Design

          With window coverings by Hunter Douglas and Custom Draperies by Read Design

We can see the start of warm weather ahead of us and it is time to freshen up your home just in time for Spring. What better way then changing out your window coverings or adding Custom Window Treatments?! I love to open the windows at the beginning of Spring and see Nature in it's glory and to smell the freshness of Spring.

A great way to open up your home is to update your window coverings.

Silhouette, Pirouette, and Roman Shades

When customers ask us what we would do to open up a room, we always suggest shades. These include Silhouettes, Pirouettes, Roman Shades and Roller Shades all from Hunter Douglas. These are products where you can easily lift them all the way up and let the sun shine in.  

Silhouette transforms light. Like the subtle cast their name suggests, Silhouette window shadings with the Signature S-Vane, creates beautiful and ambient light and shadow. Soft fabric vanes are suspended between two sheers, diffusing softened light deep into a room. Tilt the vanes to achieve the privacy you desire while maintaining UV protection. These shades can easily be rolled all the way into a cassette to give full view of the outside.

Stringing design, dramatically filtered light. With Pirouette window shadings, the look and feel of a traditional fabric shade is enhanced, the gentle pull of a cord lets you change a room's lighting in a whole new way. Soft, horizontal fabric vanes close to filter natural light, or open to give you a perfect outside view. Our revolutionary invisi-Lift system allows the vanes to float gracefully. Even when opened they offer UV protection and reduced glare through the sheer backing.

Vignette and Design Studio Roman Shades offer a simple, uncluttered, look. Luxurious fabrics and soft folds give the shades a clean, crisp look. The range of styles can help you create a warm, inviting, and beautiful space. With so many fabric color and texture options, there is something for any style of home.

Sophisticated but uncomplicated is how we describe Roller Shades. For a look that is both custom and classic, our Designer Roller Shades offer a clean appearance in a beautiful range of fabrics and have a variety of design options and operating systems.  

There other Shades from Hunter Douglas that also fit this bill including Duette Honeycomb Shades, Provenance Woven Shades, and Solera Soft Shade. All of these designs are beautiful and dynamic. 

 

 

Stop in to see us at Read Design in Southlake or Plano and let one of our designers help you select the perfect shade for your home. Because we are a full service Interior Design Studio, we can help you with Custom Window Treatments. We can even pair them to Hunter Douglas Shades. With the thousands of fabrics available, we are sure that we can find the perfect fit for your home.  Here are just a few ideas.

Solera Soft Shades

Read Design

Designed Especially for Homeowners who Seek Something Different

The new Solera Soft Shades offer a smooth, sculptured feel for your windows. That’s because of the unique cascading pleat construction that filters light beautifully.

About Solera

Every color in each fabric style in the collection is available in light filtering or room darkening.

  • Light filtering diffuses light for a soft glow while providing moderate privacy.
  • Room darkening provides privacy along with maximum light control.

Hunter Douglas Solera – Style Simplified

Solera offers innovative operating systems with increased child safety designed to fit your needs.

  • LiteRise: This cordless system makes raising and lowering shades easier than ever. Simply push up to raise, or pull down to lower.
  • UltraGlide: Exclusive to Hunter Douglas, the revolutionary retractable cord provides a self-lowering feature and a constant cord length.
  • EasyRise: This continuous cord loop system is simple, intuitive and operates even the largest shades with an easy hand-over-hand motion.
  • PowerView: Operate your shades with the touch of a button. PowerRise allows you to raise and lower the shades with both infrared and radio frequency operation. This is Hunter Douglas Platinum App Certified.

The best way I can describe these brand new shades is that they are sort of a cross between Honeycomb Shades and Roman Shades. They have the soft, cascading fold of the roman shade, and the modified form of the insulating air pockets on the honeycomb shades. They are absolutely beautiful and have quickly moved to the top of our favorites list!

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.
