Hunter Douglas Pirouette® window shadings
When dressing the windows in a master bedroom, it’s important to remember the functionality of the pieces in addition to their beauty. A bedroom is to remain serene, quiet, and dark in the evenings and early mornings to give you the most restful sleep you can get! If you have undressed windows, or under dressed windows with blinds or shades that are letting in too much light at night, your sleep can be negatively affected. That was just that case for this client’s bedroom, and just the reason!
With sun shining into three wide windows resembling wide-set bay windows, this room was no stranger to morning light. The walls were quite literally covered in sunshine! In order to create the best sleeping environment for my client, we needed something to creatively calm the outside light. We started by looking at the wide array of Silhouette Window Shadings, which are always a great option for bedrooms, but this unique room design required a little extra..
We turned to the top-notch dressings with room-darkening capabilities and my client found the one. She simply fell in love with the fabric choices for the Hunter Douglas Pirouette Shades. The range of sheer to opaque fabrics in stunning colors and textures was just the tipping point after she had seen how the Pirouette shades could close to increase privacy and adjust to let in just the right amount of light.
My clients love the sun, but come midday, they don’t want to give up their fine art to fade over time just for sunshine, and now they didn’t have to. The sheer fabric in the back of the shades kept the view from being compromised, but diffused the harmful UV rays to provide added protection.When the soft, fabric vanes are drawn closed, they provide the perfect measure of blackout needed for superior sleep.The smooth, and slightly lustrous silk fabric we decided on for the vanes certainly heightened the sense of luxury, which is always a bonus.
What could make these versatile shadings even more efficient? My client chose to install the Pirouettes with the PowerRise system with Platinum Technology! They can easily open, close, and adjust the vanes from any room in the house with a touch of a button. With the Platinum App, their iPad becomes a remote, and instantly tailors the window dressings from room to room, and can even schedule these changes in advance! It’s an excellent feature for anyone who wants the convenience of automated windows, and really added that extra luxury to the already stunning new style of this Master Bedroom.
