Wood-based design has always been the first choice for those who are looking for a comfortable option in their homes, but for homeowners in the Pacific Northwest, a reliance on wood in interior design has become a staple. After all, Oregon and Washington are best known for their forests!
This client has gorgeous wood throughout the home, but their existing window treatments did nothing to protect from the sun’s damaging UV rays. Not only did these treatments fail to provide protection and energy efficiency, they had old dangling cords that are just not safe and really clutter up the view. For something that really stands out in the region while remaining local, you have to find a treatment that manages to combine traditional elements of the region with modern innovation, which is exactly what we’ve aimed to do with this sleek window redesign.
Duette Architella honeycomb shades were just the thing for the situation. They didn’t lose a bit of the natural light in the space, but gained in both style and energy savings. In addition, the cordless LiteRise® lift system was incorporated on to the treatment to clean up that clutter around the edges of their windows. This subtle complement worked just like the cherry on a sundae, and was just what the entire window needed to be modernized.
