As far as design elements go, window treatments are pretty important ones. Not only do they serve a real purpose—filtering light and allowing for privacy—but, especially in a home with a lot of windows, they take up a lot of real estate, so you want them to look good. That's why one newly announced collaboration has us itching to change out our curtains. Today, Hunter Douglas, maker of high-tech window treatments, launched its Design Studio program, with its first designer: Rebecca Atwood.
Atwood, a painter, developed an avid fan base by translating her hand-painted designs into fabric patterns that she sells by the yard, as pillows and on bedding. Now, she's bringing her talents to window treatments. "I'm so excited because the technology is amazing, and to pair it with these designs is such a fun combination," Atwood told House Beautiful.
Atwood's patterns are available as panels, drapery, roller, and roman shades—so, basically, any window treatment you could need. "This new program helps the consumer add their own look or finishing touch to the décor of their home," explains Hunter Douglas Window Designs Group president Ron Rubinoff. "Layering is really growing in homes, and this gives the ability to add color and pattern in your window treatments."
Indeed, Atwood says the element she's most excited for is the ability for customers to mix and match her designs through drapery, shades, and more. "I love the idea that you can mix them," she says of the 43 total patterns, which all come in every style of shade. Hunter Douglas has also launched a more neutral "core" line of Design Studio fabrics, which are meant to coordinate.
The window treatments are all compatible with Hunter Douglas's app, which allows you to automate and control them remotely. But the best part? All orders will have a 10-day turnaround—a game-changer for anyone who's waited months for a custom order. Says Rubinoff, "People want custom drapery but they just don't know where to start." Well, this seems like a pretty good place!
