My client, Theresa, has a lovely country-inspired home with wooden walls and giant windows. Her house is set against a picturesque view of trees that showcase the beauty of fall. The large windows are a big pro: they allow my client to look out at a beautiful view and let in natural light on sunny days.
However, the large windows also made my client feel that her house was exposed. Plus, without window coverings, there was no way to control the amount of light that came into the home. Finally, some areas needed to be darkened during the day, while other rooms still needed the benefit of natural light.
My Recommendation: Duette Architella Honeycomb Shades
I recommended installing Hunter Douglas Duette Architella shades because of their practicality, style, and efficiency. Not only do the shades cover a range of window sizes, but they can also be opened from top-down or bottom-up, giving the client the ability to enjoy the alfresco landscape outside and control the amount of light coming into the home.

Moreover, because winter is on its way, this window treatment can help make the country-inspired home warm and cozy. The shades are specially designed with honeycomb-shaped cells that boost energy efficiency by creating a protective barrier between the window and the room. The barrier shields your home’s interior from the elements outside and keeps precious heat in.

A Happy Solution
The Duette Architella shades and Theresa’s glass windows are a match made in heaven. The honeycomb shades create a lovely canvas in the interior, accentuating the charming wooden walls and ceiling, while helping with light control and energy efficiency. The view was also preserved, allowing Theresa to relish the scenic beauty outside.
