WHEN A WHITE BLIND IS SIMPLY NOT A WHITE BLIND

silhouette blogNo other product in the market can do as much as Hunter Douglas Silhouette® shadings. With its sheer soft vanes, Silhouette® is one of the most versatile shades in the industry.  Soft, sheer Silhouette® feels like a curtain and works like a blind and you really cannot call it a shade.

Hunter Douglas created a window covering so revolutionary it allows you to control the light without sacrificing your privacy!  Simply tilt the vanes to achieve your desired level of light and privacy.  It is a perfect choice for almost every room!

Silhouette® is without a doubt one of the best sellers in our Gallery and not surprising white is ordered over 90% of the time. A crisp white room is elegant, clean and fresh, but finding the perfect shade can be a major undertaking. I had the opportunity to speak with Melissa Gruber, owner and principal designer of Adam’s Interior Design in New York to discuss how she chooses the perfect Silhouette® for her clients.

  1. Mystere Mystic Vapor: This is my favorite soft white. It has a bit of a blush and looks great with warmer greens and neutrals. The horizontal striations are pretty and add an extra bit of interest to the window.
  2. Chateau Raw Canvas:  This is my favorite bright white. The fabric has some surface interest but the effect is still very clean and modern. Great for modern interiors!
  3. Toujours Scented Linen:   This is my go to choice when I am using Silhouettes® in place of sheer draperies.  This fabric is terrific for a traditional space and goes with all of my trim colors.
  4. Bon Jour Cream Pitcher :   I use this color when I am working with darker paint colors in a more formal room. This is an especially beautiful material that works well when paired with other decorative fabric treatments
  5. Nouveau Powdered Sugar:  For a crisp clean look, with grey or blue painted rooms, I like this choice. The fabric is similar to a raw silk which keeps the effect rich, but the color and crispness lends itself to a spa-like interior.
