Remodel of a 1961 Mid Century Modern Home Part 1

Many of our clients wonder what we do in our free time. The answer is simple, more work. We love to stay busy so when the opportunity presented itself to purchase a 1960’s Mid Century Modern home, we jumped all over it. The house was pretty much in its original condition since built 50 years ago. In the past year we have accomplished much more than expected and will outline our progress in the months to come. Be sure to check back to see our updates. Heres a hint, (today, the home looks nothing like the below pics when purchased a year ago). Soon we will be able to submit our final pics to

Gypsy Shiny Diner Project

When we were asked to help improve the best diner in town we gladly accepted the challenge. The goal was to update the partially broken and non-functional mini blinds with a newer design and a more durable product. The product could not confuse customers in thinking the diner was closed when they were in the down position. On the interior, the shades would have to reduce the glare while being able to see outside.

Roller shades seem to be the “Go To” product when we need a super durable and easy to use commercial shade. The diner itself is not very large. We choose a solid charcoal fabric that had a 14% openness weave. This choice seemed to bring the outside in. The shades seem to work very well in a 50’s themed diner whether your enjoying an early morning cup of coffee or a late night dessert. The window trim is finished in a brushed aluminum and so choosing a matching fascia cover simplified the entire design.

The bottom line is that these shades require very little maintenance , are easy to operate and give high traffic areas many years of good use all coming in at a reasonable price.

From Hunter Douglas site:

Headquartered in Upper Saddle River, NJ, Hunter Douglas is the leading manufacturer of custom-made window fashions in North America. For more than 60 years, we have been making a big difference at the window and in homes across America.

In 1985, Hunter Douglas invented energy-efficient Duette© honeycomb shades—the first product of its kind—in response to the energy crisis of the late 1970s. More recently, we’ve introduced the latest generation of honeycomb shades—the Duette© Architella© Collection—which offer superior energy efficiency thanks to their patented honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb construction.

With the introduction of products like Duette© honeycomb shades, Silhouette© and Pirouette© window shadings, and Luminette© Privacy Sheers, to name just a few, our innovative window fashions help contribute to greater energy savings at the window.

Woven Woods are Back!

Natural bamboo, grasses and reeds are making their way back into the home.  Woven wood shades are the perfect compliment to almost any room. With hundreds of different materials available it makes them extremely versatile.

We have matched kitchen cabinets, hardwood floors and even stained doors. Wovens are great in bathrooms to create a spa like setting. A lining with different opacities on the back side of the shade can be added for several reasons:

  • If you want to achieve a uniform appearance from the exterior of your home.
  • You can choose an opaque lining letting in little to no light for rooms such as media, bedrooms and nurseries.
  • With out the lining, we have used them on stained front doors that have glass.  The customer wants privacy but a product that matches closely to the stained door and looks good from the exterior.

Woven woods come in many different colors, textures and styles. These shades are moderately priced and give a great finishing touch to almost any space. Call today for details on our current Woven Wood promotions.
