bedThe trend for 2013 is bright colors and crisp geometric patterns.  Bedding is fun place to play with these trends because it is easy to switch up from season to season.

Not ready to commit to a new duvet? We have the answer for that.

Choose a neutral duvet and add a pop of color in your accent pillows.  This season, think lime, turquoise, coral or mint to bring a fresh spring vibe into your home.

A Design Solution to Create Symmetry

SymmetryCreating symmetry where architecturally there is none.

A lack of symmetry in design – It’s a dilemma: A sliding glass door on one side of your focal point and a window on the other.  Symmetry does not exist in the room, and so the focal point feels out of place.

SOLUTION! Treat the window the same way you treat the slider.  Notice how we stacked the treatment to opposite sides on each to create balance.

These Hunter Douglas Luminettes shades are pretty, filter sunlight and provide privacy, but unlike a traditional vertical slider window treatment, they work well over a window too.  You could finish this look off with matching drapery.

The Top Three Reasons Your Need Hunter Douglas Window Treatments

You don’t want to spend money heating the outdoors. Keep your heat in and the cold out with Hunter Douglas window products!

Without energy-efficient window treatments, as much as 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows. All Hunter Douglas window fashions provide window insulation, offering your home increased protection against heat loss during the winter, as well as minimizing the sun’s heat or “solar heat” during the summer. More specifically, here’s how Hunter Douglas products help conserve energy at the window in these three significant ways:

Insulation: Our window fashions reduce heat flow (both heat loss and heat gain) through the windows.


Solar Heat Control: Our window fashions help tocontrol solar heat (heat generated from the sun) by allowing it into your home in the winter and minimizing the amount that comes in during the summer.


Daylighting: Our window fashions enhance daylighting (the use ofnatural light) by diffusing
and dispersing sunlight deep into a room, reducing your need for electrical lighting.

Inspiration, Specials & More
Lisa’s help on our major kitchen/family room renovation was invaluable. She is one very smart woman, with wide ranging talent and ability in all aspects of interior design, from architectural design of the space to designing lighting plans. Most importantly for us, she improved our architect’s design by seeing the space in a fresh and creative way that numerous other contractors and architects had missed – this gave us additional kitchen space and a more open flowing design. Another example of Lisa’s out-of-the-box thinking was her idea to hide my desk in a cabinet, rather than have an actual desk occupy space in the room. Even my hard-to-please engineer husband was truly impressed (especially since he also missed these ideas!) I am so happy that I used Lisa from the beginning of this project, rather than just for the actual color/furniture/coordination selection process. … and I am so happy that I also had her help for this part too. I love how she helped me: cheerfully and patiently guiding me, offering me lots of choices, explaining her advice, being always practical about her choices and with my money, and, of course, most importantly, leaving me with two really beautiful rooms that our entire family loves and enjoys. I have heard many people complain about their huge projects – but I think if you choose the right people to help you, the process can be a pleasure. Lisa made this true for us, so I give her my highest recommendation. Thank you, Lisa!
