Designing for Style and Energy Efficiency in the Bedroom

by Kriss


It’s always a special treat when a client appreciates your designs enough to ring you a second time during their home decorating journey.  I recently got the chance to work again with one of my favorite clients, who loves getting the most fashionable window treatments without having to deal with power tools.

Previously we had installed Hunter Douglas Silhouette Shades in their family room, dining room, and kitchen.  They were the perfect solution for all three well-loved rooms, and the Chateau fabric in the rich Dijon color blended beautifully with the granite, and variant wood tones in my client’s home.

The wide range of opacity, fabric, and design options made Silhouette window shadings a simple choice.  Plus, the wood accents are now all safe from sun damage, as the Silhouette Shadings are at the top of the list of the most protective against the sun’s ultraviolet light.

For the second appointment, my client wanted to add window treatments in their master bedroom as well as the downstairs family and game room.  For these two rooms we chose Hunter Douglas Duette Architella honeycomb shades.  Duette Architella honeycomb shades are among the highest energy efficient products on the market.

In the master bedroom, the windows are very narrow, and vertically rectangular.  The top-down/bottom-up option gave the windows the privacy my client had hoped for, along with meeting the shaping and sizing needs for the very narrow windows.  They chose a beautiful color called Wild Ginger, which coordinates with their existing drapery.

Downstairs we decided to use the same Duette Architella shades in the Patina Grey color, to tie in with the furniture and artwork on display in the family room.  The windows were equipped with the standard bottom-up drawing mechanism, as they were only concerned with lighting and energy efficiency for those treatments.

I was once again delighted to work with this very grateful repeat client, and am excited to see her home come together so beautifully in both design and functionality.

If you’re looking for energy smart style for your windows, now is a great time to schedule your free design consultation.  We’ve got the lowest prices of the year on the popular Duette Architella honeycomb shades, Silhouette Window Shadings, and Vignette Modern Roman Shades!
