There’s been so much talk lately about sleep-deprived America, that the thoughts about covering up and sleeping are keeping me awake. Can we really design ourselves to a better night’s sleep? Yes, and we are sharing our methods to stop the madness of sleepless nights.
This Spring invites us to design the beauty of light in our homes, opening the windows to all that is new with Hunter Douglas' latest innovations in window coverings. This Spring and every Spring we attend the Hunter Douglas Premieres showcase and once again our vision for your windows is refreshed with exciting options that will be arriving to our showroom very soon.
Motorization Steals The Show
We will do our best not to use the word "excited" too much in this blog, but we are excited about the advancement of PowerView motorization that now includes operating your Shutters. Think of those hard-to-reach upper-windows and you'll quickly understand why all the excitement!
Hello Google. Hello Alexa.
Have you ever thought I just want to tell Google to close my shades? The time has come! All motorized products are now compatible with Alexa and Google home automation voice commands.
All You Need Is a Soft Touch
With SoftTouch Motorization the power is in the wand control. A newer way to operate shades, yes, it is newer in comparison to standard operation options, but has been with us for a while now. The new news on the SoftTouch is that it is now available on all seven of these Shades:
Designing The Light - Day And Night
The DuoLite feature is now available on Vignette Modern Roman Shades offering two opacity options in one roman shade.
Provenance Woven Woods
We were introduced to nine new styles in the Provenance Woven Wood Shade collection -Nine styles! That gives us 41 new fabric and color choices and new valance options as well. Featuring lighter weaves in a neutral color palette.
Whole House Solutions
We love these coordinates!! Vignette Modern Roman Shades and Luminettes now have coordinating fabrics in the Sheer Linen Design to carry your look vertically or horizontally throughout all of your window types.

When Two Great Shades Come Together
You Get "Sonnette"
Introducing DESIGNER Banded Shades
A fresh take on roller shades, DESIGNER Banded Shades feature a combination of sheer and solid fabric bands in a single shade. Flexible functionality transitions between complete privacy, filtered light, or total view-through. Selections include three different band heights, along with three different band shapes, and an extensive fabric collection in 23 fabric styles.
We cannot wait for the samples to arrive - Coming soon!
The Wand Does All The Work
Clearly, a must-have operation! Soft-Touch Motorization is a battery-powered system with wand-controlled operation. You gently pull-down to lower shades and gently push-up to raise them.
Currently available on Sonnette Window Shades only... but.... we'll hope for more applications soon!
