Solera Soft Shades from Hunter Douglas Product Review

Solera soft shades by Hunter Douglas offer so many features in it’s base pricing, it’s one of my favorite window treatment options.

So I tell clients if a honeycomb and a roman shade got married, and had a baby- it would look just like a Solera soft shade.   You have the larger fold look like a roman shade, but you also get a crisp pleat in the center of it, much like a honeycomb.

What makes it one of my favorites is it’s wide variety of fabric options with a few great entry level choices, that make Solera an option when someone likes the feel of a traditional soft treatment look, but maybe doesn’t have the budget for it

All lift systems (besides motorization) are included in the price (not an add on feature) which makes the buying process a lot simpler for a homeowner and also puts child safety and the convenience features they offer easily within reach for the homeowner.  There is more details with images on that in the video version of this post.

Check out my video below which reviews why I love Solera soft shades and also gives you a glimpse of the product and fabric selections.

Hunter Douglas Vignette Roman Shade + Valance

Form and Function unite in Vignette, the Modern Roman Shade from Hunter Douglas.  For this homeowner in Edmond OK, the richly textured fabric for the Vignette in a solid material gave her a wonderful foundation to build upon.  The neutral fabric ties into the stone of the fireplace, and adds warmth without bulk.

Once the foundation was selected,  we made a non functioning valance in our drapery workroom that is reminiscent of a relaxed roman shade, with its soft folds.  The stripes pull out both the wall color and the fireplace and roman shade color.

The Hunter Douglas Vignette Shades use Powerrise motorization with a wall mounted wireless switch (no lost remotes!!), so privacy is just a touch of a button away and pool views are never restricted by slats, cords or anything else!   Since these radio frequency shades run off batteries, no prewire by an electrician is necessary.  This makes them an affordable way to incorporate today’s technology into your home.  Add beauty, energy and light control at the touch of a button into your window treatments.   For more information on the power of motorization, call Grace Allen Blinds.  You can also  visit to browse products and features!
