Nearly all of the Hunter Douglas window treatments can be motorized now. The exclusive Hunter Douglas Powerview® system allows people to enjoy the convenience of opening and closing their window blinds or shades with the touch of a button. Most of the Powerview window treatments are battery powered. The battery is hidden behind the headrail so you don’t have to worry about it being out in the open. You also have the option have your Hunter Douglas Powerview® system to be hard-wired, eliminating the need for batteries. And the motors that control the window treatments are very quiet so there’s no noise to bother you while your blinds or shades are in motion.

Hunter Douglas Powerview® Hub

Hunter Douglas has created a new Powerview® Hub which includes technology that lets you use voice commands to control your window treatments. The Powerview Hub connects to a Wi-Fi router to communicate with your window coverings that feature Powerview motorization. Now, with certain devices, you won’t even need to press a button to command your window blinds or shades. Download the Hunter Douglas Powerview® App to make the process even easier by allowing you to set scenes and timers which will put an end to turning your window treatments on-and-off by hand. Now, your window blinds or shades will be controlled automatically through the Powerview App.

How to Use Voice Commands to Control Your Window Coverings

The Hunter Douglas Powerview Hub now supports the use of devices such as Amazon Echo and Alexa to vocally control your window treatments. All you have to do is connect the devices together and adjust your settings, and you’re done! Your window coverings can be controlled by voice commands, making the process of opening and closing blinds and shades effortless. Check out a few of the devices that can be integrated with the Powerview hub.

Take a look at this video that shows exactly how to connect your Hunter Douglas Alexa blinds to your Powerview hub.

Customized Window Coverings To Retain The Value Of Your Home

When you purchase Hunter Douglas window coverings through Horizon Window Fashions, you can be sure that they’re going to fit your window properly. Our experts come directly to your home to precisely measure. Many people purchase their window treatments directly online or through a catalog and then take the risk of the coverings not fitting properly. After we’ve provided you with a free consultation that entails properly measuring your windows, we invite you to come see our showroom. There, you’ll be able to see firsthand an example of every single Hunter Douglas shade, blind, or shutter that is sold. You can view directly our wide range of color options and you’ll be able to touch every type of fabric or material we have to offer. This way, there will be no surprises when we come to install your new treatments. You’ll be getting exactly what you want and exactly what you expect. By purchasing treatments that fit your glass impeccably and look flawless, you are making sure to retain the value of your home so that when/if the time comes, you can sell it quickly and at the right price. Old, faded, and broken window coverings will make your home less desirable to potential buyers.

Privacy For You and Your Family

Huge glass windows are certainly beautiful in the middle of the day. Let the natural light into your home and also enjoy the view you have on the other side of the glass. But, what happens at night? Many don’t enjoy the thought of others being able to see into their home once the sun goes down. The best solution to this is to cover your glass with shades that can open completely during the day but can also close fully at sundown. This will give you peace of mind knowing that you and your family are protected from outside view. When families approach us with this dilemma, one of our favorites to recommend is the Hunter Douglas Silhouette™ shade.

The Silhouette™ shade is absolutely perfect because it combines beauty and elegance with functionality. The S-shaped vanes almost appear to be floating between sheer panels. You can open them just slightly or you can pull them up completely to let all the sunlight in. Many of our customers tell us that the Silhouette shade is the most luxurious of all. The great part about the Silhouette shade (as well as a lot of other Hunter Douglas shades) is that there are several different options available to customize your shades. If you like a completely blacked out look, then the Silhouette Duolite™ shade is perfect as it has a room darkening roller shade nestled right behind the Silhouette™. You can also integrate these shades with Hunter Douglas PowerView® Motorization and schedule times throughout the day to open and close your shades. The convenience is remarkable—you won’t even have to blink.

Keep Your Possessions Pristine

Over time, ultraviolet light, visible light, and solar heat all contribute to the fading of furniture upholstery, wood, art, paintings, and other items, bringing down the value of your home and other property you own. While keeping your shades open during the day can sometimes be nice, it’s important not to do it all the time, especially when the sun is at its strongest point, or if you’re out of town. Hunter Douglas window treatments have the ability to draw natural light into your home without shining directly on your furniture and floors and fading the color. Our coverings are also energy efficient so that you can save on your energy consumption in the winter as well as in the summer.

For years, the Pantone color institute has been forecasting color trends globally and giving advice to businesses on how to create a brand or product that has a visual identity. Pantone helps global brands take advantage of the power of color to help them develop a design strategy that grows their business.

For the year 2019, Pantone has selected “Living Coral” as the color of the year. Quite a change from Pantone’s 2018 color of the year “Ultra Violet”—a thoughtful and provocative shade. “Living Coral,” according to Pantone, “welcomes and encourages lighthearted activity,” and “embodies our desire for playful expression.”

Each year, when Pantone announces the color of the year, individuals scramble to incorporate the color into their daily lives. We see the color pop up more and more in several aspects such as fashion, makeup, interior design, marketing, social media, packaging, and all kinds of product design.

Incorporating Pantone's Color Of The Year

Because Pantone’s color of the year is seen as trendy and fashion forward, individuals can’t wait to bring the color into their home. However, as we’ve seen with many of Pantone’s colors, they are often bright and must be incorporated carefully. Individuals typically like to use the color as an accent color in their home— something that “pops.” In other words, it may not be typical to find “living coral” painted all over the walls of a home. We also probably wouldn’t see a giant couch in this shade, nor would we see coral window blinds, shutters, or shades covering glass windows. However, we might see kitchen accessories in living coral, or perhaps pictures frames, vases, couch pillows, or other small decorations. In order to incorporate this brilliant color, it's essential that the rest of the house is a shade that compliments living coral as opposed to clashes with it.

Window Coverings—An Essential Component

One of the most important things in any home is the dressing on the windows. Window coverings are important not only for aesthetic appeal but also for the functionality of your home. The coverings on your windows really set the tone and determine the feel of the space. You first have to consider the color of your window coverings. Deciding on the color of the window blinds, shutters, or shades is a huge first step because you want to make sure it matches the rest of the room.

Colors to pair with Living Coral

Because living coral is such a youthful and expressive color, we recommend pairing it with light and neutral colors. Ideally, your window coverings will contain cooler tones as opposed to warmer ones. You won’t want to choose something that has orange, red, or pink undertones. Shades with warm colors will clash with your living coral accents. Choosing a covering that is pure white will give your space a very crisp and clean feeling. Many of our customers choose a pure white covering when the furniture/decor/accessories in their home are prominent and brightly colored. You may also find window coverings in the grey family to work very well with a color such as Living Coral. It may not be quite as bright as the pure white, but it still gives your space that clean, modern, and perhaps “beachy” feel. We strongly recommend staying away from beige and brown tones, as well as anything that contains much pigment. When guests visit your home, they should feel the contrast between the living coral accents as well as the pure white or grey window coverings.

Let The Light In

With a bright color such as living coral, you’ll want to let in as much natural light as you can. Stay away from choosing coverings that block too much light out of the room. However, you’ll still want something that allows you to shut out light perhaps at night or during movie time. Choosing between Hunter Douglas shades, shutters, and blinds is not always an easy task.  We love all three, so we will give you our personal recommendation from each category.


When it comes to shutters, we absolutely love the Palm Beach™ Polysatin™ Shutters. Even if your windows are constantly being exposed to harsh sunlight, these shutters won’t fade, warp, crack, chip, or peel. The bright white color of these shutters is perfect for a home filled with accents of Living Coral. Allow the natural light to come in so that you can show off your stylish home decor.


If you’re looking for shades to cover your windows, we recommend Hunter Douglas Pirouette® Window Shadings. The soft, horizontal fabric vanes close to filter natural light, or open to give you a perfect view of outside. So, during the day, open them up to allow your living coral accents to really pop, and during the evening, close them to give your home that cozy, warm feeling. These shades feature a revolutionary Invisi-Lift™ system that makes the vanes appear as if they are floating gracefully. You’ll love the way these shades compliment a bright, energetic color.


If you’re interested in sticking with a classic blind, we recommend the Hunter Douglas Parkland® Wood Blinds in a bright white. If you prefer something in a slightly different shade, that option is certainly available as well. The Parkland® Wood blinds are great because you can choose from three different slat sizes and you have the option of adding Hunter Douglas Powerview® motorization.

Finding the right window coverings for your space can really change the mood of your room and help to make your accent colors such as Living Coral really pop. There are several decisions that must be made during the process of choosing the right coverings. Type of covering, color, texture, amount of light, and whether or not you want motorization all must be taken into consideration. While the process may seem overwhelming, Horizon Window Fashions is here to make it easier. Let us know what we can help you with, and we will be more than happy to do so!

When Pantone announced the 2017 Color of the Year in December, results were mixed and people were a little confused.

“Greenery is a fresh and zesty yellow-green shade that evokes the first days of spring when nature’s greens revive, restore and renew. Illustrative of flourishing foliage and the lushness of the great outdoors, the fortifying attributes of Greenery signals consumers to take a deep breath, oxygenate and reinvigorate.” -- Pantone.com

While some people loved the bright, fresh and modern shade of green, others felt it was too vibrant a color and not reflective of the earthy greens found in nature. For those that loved the color, greenery invited an opportunity for redecoration along with the revitalization. This redecoration process often starts with a wall color and is finished with new window treatments. With such a bright color, window treatments can bring the final touch to tie your new color scheme together. hunter douglas window treatments

Redecorate with Greenery Window Treatments

To jumpstart your redecorating process, picking a feature point can be a great place to begin. Select your feature in Pantone’s ‘Greenery’:

Utilizing a Greenery feature point will draw your eye to the bright color without overwhelming your space. This fresh greenery color traverses across seasons well - whether reminding you of spring weather on a dreary winter day, or taking the bright summer colors from outdoors to indoors. Window Coverings Reno

Pairing Colors with Greenery

Greenery is a versatile color that can be incorporated into your window treatments in several different color palettes to match your tastes. Pair the bright green with other pastels and vibrant colors to give a fulfilling spring vibe. Or, choose to pair the greenery with browns, taupes, and rich copper tones to reflect the natural feel of a forest floor. Any color palette can be pulled together through the use of stylish window coverings. If you find yourself drawn to Pantone’s Greenery, but not quite sure what to do with it, check out Pantone’s color palette options to get you started with a style you’ll love.

You know how when midsummer roles around, and all you want is the light of that bright sunny day without all the scorching heat that comes with it? Without a good window dressing setup, your home can quickly become a hotbox. But have no fear, we have a few great window designs for you that are functional, as well as energy efficient. Take a look for yourself:

Energy Efficient Window Awnings

Did you know window awnings can reduce heat from the sun by as much as 65% on southern facing homes, and 77% on those of you facing west? Originally made of metal or canvas, awnings used to have to be resurfaced fairly routinely, but with the emersion of synthetic materials such as acrylic, this isn’t so much the case anymore. If you decide to go with one of these energy-friendly shade providers, be sure to pick an opaque color, as this allows for optimum heat repellent and as a result, a happier you.

Interior Blinds for Summer Days

While lacking in the heat retention department, interior window blinds are a great way to keep the heat from getting in. With great adjustability and a reflective surface, window blinds can reduce heat in your home by as much as 45%. And if you really want to impress the neighbors at the next barbecue, consider painting your ceilings a light color to help with heat reduction—with blinds, you can direct sunlight onto the ceiling, which with a light pigment can diffuse the light and eliminate the heat that accompanies it.

Save Energy with Shades

Seems simple, right? Well sometimes, simple is best. Shades are a great way to reduce heat in your home, especially when placed close to a wall which creates a sealed air space. To be especially energy efficient, get your hands on some duel shades. These bad boys are dark on one side, and reflective on the other, allowing you to reverse them depending on the season for either a nice cool living room, or a toasty den in the depths of winter. Just remember: face the reflective side toward the place of greatest heat—whether that’s outside or in your living room.
