Silhouette, Pirouette, and Roman Shades

Silhouette transforms light. Like the subtle cast their name suggests, Silhouette window shadings, with the Signature S-Vane, create beautiful and ambient light ande 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, and even opened they offer UV protection and reduced glare through the sheer backing.

Pantone Color Of The Year 2017

Read Design

Introducing Greenery!

A refreshing and revitalizing shade, Greenery is symbolic of new beginnings. 

Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.

Greenery is nature’s neutral. The more submerged people are in modern life, the greater their innate craving to immerse themselves in the physical beauty and inherent unity of the natural world. This shift is reflected by the proliferation of all things expressive of Greenery in daily lives through urban planning, architecture, lifestyle and design choices globally. A constant on the periphery, Greenery is now being pulled to the forefront - it is an omnipresent hue around the world.

A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.

What is the PANTONE Color of the Year?

A symbolic color selection; a color snapshot of what we see taking place in our global culture that serves as an expression of a mood and an attitude. 

Nature’s neutral, PANTONE Greenery is a versatile “trans-seasonal” shade that lends itself to many color combinations. As displayed in the 10 palettes below, Greenery is paired with neutrals, brights, deeper shades, pastels, metallics and even the enduring presence of PANTONE Color of the Year 2016, Rose Quartz and Serenity. These palettes easily cross over fashion, beauty, product and graphic design applications.

To find custom window treatments, wallpaper, pillows and more in this bright, energetic color call Read Design in Plano or in Southlake today! We service all of Dallas - Fort Worth including Richardson, Garland, Murphy, Sachse, Allen, Wylie, St. Paul, Rockwall, Rowlette, Plano, McKinney, Frisco, Prosper, Little Elm, Celina, Gunter, The Colony, Lewisville, Coppell, Carrollton, Farmers Branch, Colleyville, Trophy Club, Southlake, Westlake, Flower Mound, Roanoke, Keller and everywhere in between.

Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Shades

Read Design

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

Simplicity is the Ultimate Sophistication.

Keep it simple. Roller Shades have a sleek, modern design and an uncanny ability to regulate natural light and privacy in your home. Perfect for cutting down on glare and catching up on sleep. Roller Shades are easy to operate with all of the Lift Systems made by Hunter Douglas. They are the perfect window treatment for a clean, finished look.

Designer Roller Shades

Our Designer Roller Shades by Hunter Douglas combine the ease and simplicity of a Roller Shade with hundreds of fabric choices - sheers to opaque, patterns to textures, and traditional solid colors.

Designer Screen Shades

Our Designer Screen Shades are the best at balancing privacy with views. They offer excellent UV protection while maintaining your view of the outdoors. Our Designer Screen Shades are available in varying levels of opacity to fit your light control needs. Offering a minimal yet sophisticated shade with light control, color and style - a perfect roller screen shade for your patio or sunroom.

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.

Stop in either of our Galleries- Read Design Southlake or Read Design Plano. Our Designers are ready to show you the latest trends in Window Fashions including Designer Roller Shades, Designer Screen shades and the Alustra Collection of Roller Shade. We have all of the new products and the new sampling. We also a full Interior Design Studio and can help you with any Drapery Project including Stationary Panels, Valances, Cornices, and Curtains.

You call either store and we will send out our Mobile Showroom.

Hunter Douglas Silhouette A Deux Shades

Read Design

The latest innovation from Hunter Douglas, Silhouette A Deux™ offers a room-darkening option by combining a classic Silhouette shading and a room-darkening roller shade in a single headrail.  Available as an option on LiteRise®, PowerView® and EasyRise™ operating systems.

By sharing a common head rail, the sleek design of these two shadings allows you to enjoy the sheer look of Silhouette without the interruption of the second shade, as it stays rolled completely inside. Release it only a portion of the way down to enjoy half the amount of natural light, still providing the ambient glow. This dual function that allows each shade to operate separately is the success of this system.
