Between our design experts, installation professionals, and beautiful selection of blinds, we know we’ll find the perfect treatment for your home.
There’s no better time to start fresh than the beginning of the year. Letting go of 2016 is a cathartic process, and looking towards the brand new calendar can be inspiring. As you start to pencil in appointments and special events, don’t forget to schedule a trip to see our selection. Our team is ready to help you meet your design goals in 2017 — whatever they may be!
For some, you may only want to update the blinds, shades, or shutters in one room of your home. For others, you may have a more ambitious goal of revamping the treatments of your entire house. Regardless of the extent of your project, we know our inventory will satisfy your needs. Whether it’s your first time shopping or your fourth, our design consultants can walk you through our immense catalogue of brands, styles, and colours. They’re there to answer any question you may have about functionality, light control, and privacy as you look through our collection of Hunter Douglas, SunGlow, Shade-O-Matic, Delor, and C & B products.
You can rely on them to help you make tough decisions about your blinds. We’ve already taken a look at the hottest trends of 2017, and we’re excited to share with you our favourite looks. In terms of colours, bright and cheery tones will take centre stage this year as Pantome has awarded their colour “Greenery” the ‘it’ colour of 2017. It’s hard not to feel inspired and revitalized by this refreshing and complex hue. To complement the fresh, natural notes of Greenery, butterflies are set to overtake owls and foxes as the go-to fauna. Expect to see butterfly-inspired motifs in accessories, wallpapers, and prints this year.
Complexity is the name of the game in 2017, as designers mix and match big, bold patterns. This means you won’t to have to decide on which surface should be your statement piece, as this year is the year to embrace your daring side. Combined with thick, plush textures, you won’t be able to say this year’s upcoming trends are boring. In a bid to offset the sleek look of our appliances and devices, pleated and texturized fabrics can help add comfort to our modern homes.
Whether or not you take these trends into consideration is up to you. Whatever your sense of design is whispering in your ear, we’ll find the blind, shade, or shutter that can achieve the effect you want. All you have to do is give us a call. Together, we’ll make the start of 2017 the most fashionable one yet!
