Streamlined Shades

Clean lines and contemporary design schemes continue to gain favor as homeowners embrace a less is more approach to decorating. Chunky blinds and over-the-top treatments are being replaced by streamlined styles that neatly roll out of view when raised to maximize incoming light and views.

But don’t be fooled. These shades may look simple, but they actually feature the latest in window treatment technology boasting smaller operating components allowing for slimmer head and bottom rails.

Not sure a Designer Roller or Screen Shade is the right look for your home? Consider a more innovative style like Hunter Douglas Pirouette® window shadings, which can transition into three distinct looks.

Discover the convenience and ease of operating shades using the PowerView<sup>®</sup> Motorization App on your tablet.

Automation & Motorization

Manually operating your window treatments with a cord or wand is so last year. Smart homeowners upgrade their window treatments to motorization for increased convenience and a sleek cordless appearance at the window. Operate shades with the touch of a button using a smartphone, tablet or remote control.

PowerView® Motorization from Hunter Douglas, the most advanced operating system on the market, allows you to schedule blinds and shades to automatically adjust to your preferred setting throughout the day.

For the ultimate smart home experience, pair your window treatments with other devices in your home, like the Nest Learning Thermostat, to achieve the perfect ambiance and home environment.

Organic Materials

Soft window treatments made from natural materials, like linen, bamboo and woven woods add a beautiful organic aesthetic to your windows. Textiles with flecks, texture and bigger weaves are also popular this season providing a rich visual and tactile experience.

If you choose a hard surface window treatment style, like real wood blinds and hardwood shutters, make sure the materials are from sustainable sources, like Hunter Douglas real wood window fashions.

Matte Finishes

The high-shine, glossy appearance popular over the past few decades is losing favor as sleek matte finishes become increasingly popular among homeowners. Low-luster stains and paint colors won’t compete with other furnishing and provide an understated elegance to blinds and shutters. Homeowners worried a matte finish won’t provide enough visual interest should choose stains that emphasize the grain of the wood for a beautiful rich look.

Hunter Douglas Duette honeycomb shades in soft green add a pop of color and visual interest to the window.

Earthy Hues

For the past few years, rich blue tones have reigned supreme in home décor, with Indigo blue a favorite for textiles and accents. This year, color trends are favoring earthy pastel hues like blush pink, lavender and greenery, Pantone’s 2017 Color of the Year. Homeowners looking to soften windows with custom drapery should look to textiles in organic hues to add an exciting pop of color.
