Refresh Your Home for the Summer Ahead

With summer just around the corner, you're likely looking around your home wondering how you can change up your space before the new season arrives. Switching up your window treatments can be a great way to refresh your home's atmosphere without completely redoing your interior decor. At SmartLooks Windows & Wall Decor, we love helping our customers rediscover their homes through the power of great window treatments. This month, we're sharing our favorite window treatments for making the most of your summer in 2021.

Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades Richardson, Texas (TX) summer window treatments, woven wood shades.

Duette® Honeycomb Shades

Beat the summer heat with cellular shades. Duette® Honeycomb Shades set themselves apart from the rest with a unique honeycomb-shaped interior designed to trap air and better insulate your home. The right window treatments can reduce lost energy by up to 30%, saving you money and also improving the comfort of your home. Enjoy cooler summers in the comfortable shade behind gorgeous fabrics and textures offered by the exclusive Alustra® Collection. The Alustra® Collection brings high-end fashion to your windows with contemporary styles and unique combinations that add a pop of visual interest without clashing with your existing décor. Top-Down/Bottom-Up control lets you perfectly position your summer window treatments without compromising your sense of privacy. Combine temperature control and superior light filtration with a secondary Duolite® roller shade, which allows you to switch up the opacity of your shades for a truly customized lighting experience.

Design Studio™ Side Panels and Drapery

Perhaps one of the quickest ways to prepare your home for summer is with a fresh set of drapes or curtains. The Design Studio™ collection from Hunter Douglas is the result of a collaboration with New York designer Rebecca Atwood. Hand-painted fabrics inspired by the natural flora and landscapes of Cape Cod provide a refreshing touch to your summer décor. Geometric patterns and organic textures create visually stunning pieces that are sure to maintain their beauty and appeal for seasons to come. Design Studio™ curtains also boast improved energy efficiency with motorized control. With PowerView® Automation, your drapes sync with local sunrise and sunset times for adaptive lighting that makes it easy to keep your curtains drawn during the sunniest times of the day. This also adds a layer of convenience for when you find yourself wanting to adjust your shades after kicking back on the couch or tucking into bed.

Shield your home from harmful UV rays and excessive sunlight with warm, filtered light that’s perfect for crafting a cozy, rustic atmosphere. Choose from light filtering to room darkening opacities with an optional liner. Provenance® features a metal headrail for a polished look, adding subtle interest with a mixed media appearance.
