Discover Hunter Douglas Green

For over 60 years, Hunter Douglas has been creating and offering natural and appealing ways to harness heat and light. In the winter, heat leaves through the window when you need it, yet becomes trapped inside in the summer when you don't. Heat loss and gain drive our energy usage up. It can be felt in our monthly utility bills and calculated in our collective carbon emissions.

Today, Hunter Douglas is committed to lowering our energy usage and implementing other changes that will ultimately reduce our carbon footprint by 20%. Our overriding goal, though, is to help our customers everywhere save energy the natural way by effectively channeling and exploiting the natural power of the sun.

Get rid of the blahs in your Wheaton Home now that winter is over.


Add bright and cheerful colors to lift your spirits and create a vibrant interior look!


“Add bright colors for a refreshing change to your interior look” says Todd Zimmerman Just Right Blinds & Shutters, Wheaton, IL
Bright colors add warmth and energy to a room. They actually make your house and your life feel more joyful! Your choice of bright colors in interior design elements is almost unlimited.​          
·         Primary tones of red, yellow and blue
·         Trendy colors like acid green and tangerine
·         Zesty tropical shades like turquoise and hot pink
 Are you afraid to be so bold? “Just enough” is a good strategy for bright colors. So, if you're nervous, start small – or start in a small room - with:
·         One painted wall
·         Throw pillows
·         Bed linens
·         Table settings
·         Accessories
·         Artwork 
Feeling braver? You can add larger touches of bold in upholstery fabric, window coverings, rugs, wallcoverings and furniture. Follow these tips to make sure your bright colors are energetic, but not chaotic:
·         Balance bright colors with white or black to make them pop.
·         For a softer look, complement bright tones with neutral beige, cream or gray.
·         Think complementary colors, one soft and one bold; for example, sage green with bright red or powder blue with electric orange.
·         Start with a favorite piece of art that has splashes of bright color and let that define your bright palette.

2017 Color and Design Trends for Window Treatments
Consider this classic color pick of the year when choosing Hunter Douglas window treatments for your home.


While there are many colors of the year that are decided upon by various color organizations, our favorite choice of 2017 is taupe. The color taupe is a harmonious combination of warm brown and cool grey creating a perfectly balanced neutral that coordinates nicely with many colors. Several Hunter Douglas window treatments contain colors within their line that are a perfect companion to taupe, including:
The Alustra® Collection of Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades
The Alustra® Collection of Duette® Architella® honeycomb shades are one step above the rest when it comes to fabric offerings. This product line is constructed of rich, beautiful sheers and fabrics that are layered with unique weaves, textures and patterns to create the ultimate in design sophistication. While many of the colors are of neutral tones, the Macon fabric family has colors that are a perfect partner to taupe.

Just Right Blinds & Shutters introduces 12 hot home design trends for 2017: from Homes & Gardens of the Northwest staff

The New Year comes with predictions. What decor will be popular?
Home improvement resource Houzz surveyed professionals in architecture, interior design and decorating to come up with its list of 12 hot home design trends for 2017.
Houzz also consider viewers' behavior, and popular photos and articles to determine that black steel-and-glass doors are being used in showers and old-standbys beige and hanging chairs have been given a fresh twist.


1. Playful bedside pendant lights. Forget boring old table lamps. Hanging pendant lights free up bedside space for nightstand essentials, especially helpful in small rooms.

2. Black steel and glass doors. These work for dark entryways that could use some natural light and make a statement for shower doors when frameless glass is a little too boring in a space.

3. Splurge on laundry rooms. Smarter storage, better function and more light make doing laundry more efficient.

4. Rethinking beige. Designers find beige-based neutrals useful backdrops.

5. Romantic bedroom colors. Most homeowners strive for a calm and cozy bedroom by sticking with walls painted in soothing blues, grays or yellows. But according to a recent Houzz survey, intimate or romantic is the third-most desired atmosphere for a master bedroom after calm and cozy. To achieve this mood, colors like raspberry pink, deep ruby red, caramel and even black will be hot in 2017.

6. White and wood kitchens. When it comes to cabinets and backsplashes, the color white dominates in kitchens, according to a recent Houzz kitchen study. To keep the all-white look from becoming too sterile, designers and homeowners are introducing wood accents to help break up the look visually and provide much needed warmth.

7. Warm wood cabinets. Taking that concept a step further, designers are seeing a lot more warm wood cabinets in modern styles. These aren't the honey-colored off-the-shelf cabinets from the 1990s, but clean lined, beautifully stained versions that celebrate various wood species.

8. Wall of tile in kitchen. And speaking of tile, designers are seeing a lot of homeowners avoiding the typical above the countertop, below the cabinets backsplash format and going a bit more dramatic with full floor-to-ceiling, wall-to-wall tile coverage.

9. Vanity conversions. Instead of a pre-manufactured vanity, some homeowners are finding chests of drawers, old file cabinets, vintage consoles and more and converting them into one-of-a-kind vanities.

10. Barstools are the new jewelry of the kitchen. Modern and contemporary counter seating are popular.

11. Graphic floor tile in the kitchen. Sometimes wall space is nonexistent in a kitchen, which diminishes the opportunity for a standout backsplash. To keep the airy feeling of your kitchen but still deliver visual impact, look to graphic floor tile.

12. Hanging chairs. While these have been around for a while, they're popping up more lately, and not just in living rooms. They're a great way to add an extra seat with a fun statement to a room. Not keen on anchoring a hanging chair in your ceiling? Look for a stand model.
