In honor of St. Patrick's Day we are talking about "GREEN"...
For over 60 years, Hunter Douglas has been creating and offering natural and appealing ways to harness heat and light. In the winter, heat leaves through the window when you need it, yet becomes trapped inside in the summer when you don't. Heat loss and gain drive our energy usage up. It can be felt in our monthly utility bills and calculated in our collective carbon emissions.
Today, Hunter Douglas is committed to lowering our energy usage and implementing other changes that will ultimately reduce our carbon footprint by 20%. Our overriding goal, though, is to help our customers everywhere save energy the natural way by effectively channeling and exploiting the natural power of the sun.
That's Hunter Green. It reminds us of our unique roots, of who we are today and of where we need to go. And while there are many shades of green in today's world, there is only one Hunter Green.
More specifically, the Hunter Green initiative is a company-wide program designed to promote the superior energy-saving benefits of Hunter Douglas products, create corporate awareness and action around conserving energy across our organization, and support social programs that have a positive impact across the globe through our philanthropic efforts.
There is a great brochure that discusses better understanding putting energy efficient products in your home. Here is the link. http://www.hunterdouglas.com/pdf/GreenLight_PlanetHome.pdf

Decorating in Pairs Two of almost any home furnishings adds soothing symmetry and balance. It’s easy. Just add one home furnishing element, such as a throw pillow, picture or chair; then repeat. Interior design elements that lend themselves to pairing include: - Furniture, such as chairs, ottomans, end tables, even sofas - Throw pillows and decorative towels - Artwork hanging on walls or standing on tables - Mirrors, lamps and light fixtures Pairs add flexibility too. You can easily move them to change the function of a room for a party or other event. And if you buy new furniture, a pair of items is easier to re-arrange in the same room or settle harmoniously into another room. Even when you move, pairs of home elements are more flexible to fit into a new house and new decor. The pairing concept can be applied to colors too. Selecting a color palette for your home with two complementary colors is an effective decorating strategy. For example: - Brown and Ivory
This is HGTV's color of the month for May: It is a very bright cheerful color. I think to do this color you really have to love blue. This color would be great for a bathroom, or of course in a little boys bedroom. It is also a really great color to use as an accent, not necessarily for the whole room, and I love this color paired with the crisp brightness of white. Here are a few ideas on how to do it in a room: We can do odd shaped windows like these! Photo source
HGTV'S color of the month for August is Chrome Yellow. While a very bright cheerful color, it can be very overwhelming. I like it as an accent to add a pop of color in a room. Here are some ideas of how to use yellow in your decor. Yellow walls really make these black pleated shades from Hunter Douglas pop. A very warm room with the yellow walls and the warm tones of the wood blinds Yellow and Grey together is a very popular choice in home decor these days, and while I don't necessarily love yellow, I do love grey, and I really like the two together.
