Spring Colors – Be Inspired

With a change in season comes a shift in weather, refreshed attire, and most importantly – a new color palette. Each season has it’s own feeling, its own smell, and its own colors. Whether through fashion or décor, the persona of Spring is represented every year through the hues that we choose to emphasize.

What makes Spring colors? Well, look around. As the temperature gets warmer, “cold” colors funnel in. It’s the lighter blue of the sky, the sweeter orange of the tropics, the romantic purple of the violet flowers in bloom. It’s the pastel yellow, zesty lime green, and blossom rose with a pop of magenta! Spring colors represent revival and rejuvenation. As ambassadors of style and design, we camouflage ourselves by highlighting mother nature’s greatest shades (of color). These colors can be used creatively to brighten any room.

Visit Georgia Blinds and Interiors’ Hunter Douglas website for inspiring products inspired by the uplifting feeling of Spring: www.ga-blinds.com.

We are your exclusive Atlanta Hunter Douglas Gallery Dealer!

New Products from Hunter Douglas are coming soon!

The staff at Georgia Blinds and Interiors is committed to continuing our education on the products we offer to our clients. Yesterday, we attended the Hunter Douglas National Conference, Premieres. Get a glimpse of some spectacular new products and features to the Hunter Douglas Window Fashions.

Innovation is…everything.

It’s the original idea that leaves ordinary in the dust. It’s the functional advantage that solves a long-standing problem instantly. It’s the wow! enhancement that ushers in a new era of opportunity. And it’s the heart, soul and science of Hunter Douglas.

This year, Premieres salutes the spirit of innovation that launched Hunter Douglas nearly 70 years ago and keeps it the industry leader, today. Clearly, this leading-edge facet of the Hunter Douglas brand draws you, our customers, to our showroom and website and reinforces that your window fashion investment is wise.

We are eager for these new innovations to come out over the course of 2014. Keep checking back to see when they are available! Some of them include, but aren’t limited to:

- The UltraGlide 2 Click and Walk Away operating system lowers the shading with just one click. The single retractable cord enhances child safety. Plus, vanes automatically open when completely lowered.

- Duette and Applause honeycomb shades are now designed to enhance interior environments in two ways. Along with assuring superior energy efficiency, these top performers debut a remarkable honeycomb fabric named Venue (for Applause) — the first Hunter Douglas fabric to include MicroShield. This antimicrobial treatment protects against the odor-causing growth of bacteria, mold and mildew.

And there is so much more to come. Here’s to an extraordinary 2014! Has some of these new products and features inspired you to start a new project in your home?

Call 404-252-6991 today and schedule your design consultation!

Solera Shades from Hunter Douglas

Insights from Cheryl, one of Georgia Blinds and Interiors experts on window fashions. “My favorite new product would be the Solera shade.  Combining the features of the Duette and Vignette products, the Solera offers a high end look at an affordable price point and is also very energy efficient.  For clients drawn to the look of a Roman shade but wanting something a little more cutting edge, the Solera shade is a perfect fit……And the fabrics are great!”

Solera is available with Ultraglide, Easyrise, and Literise lift systems at no additional charge.  I especially like the Literise (cordless) option with this product.  It is also offered with Powerrise and the optional Platinum Technology which allow clients to operate their shades via remote control or using their iPad or iPhone.

Cheryl has a Bachelor of Arts Degree. She worked in retail for five years in display design then management and spent 23 years in the graphic arts industry which included designing commercial production departments.  She has been with GBI for eight years now and have been through several Hunter Douglas training classes.

Interested in using Cheryl on your next window fashions project? Like what you see with the new Solera Shades from Hunter Douglas? Call 404-252-6991 today and set up your design consultation! We are your Atlanta Hunter Douglas Gallery Dealer.
