Livable Luxury

Featured Project

2021 Design Trends focus on versatility and rethinking our living spaces for multipurpose use. In this newsletter our featured project is a screened porch. This outdoor room is more than just a screened porch though, with dining and seating areas, as well as heaters and a fireplace, it can easily be converted to an enclosed living space.

Since the onset of COVID, this family has used this large outdoor room regularly as a place to safely gather. Wanting to host a small gathering for the holiday, we were asked if we had an option for exterior shades that could be lowered to protect from the cold and elements. Outdoor vinyl roller shades are the perfect solution to turn this screened-in porch into an enclosed porch on demand!

Crystal clear vinyl with canvas framing blocks the wind while maximizing the view; fabricated to follow the framing of the existing porch makes these shades blend perfectly and renders them almost invisible when lowered.
Fully automated with Somfy motors, makes them easy to raise and lower with just the push of a button.
All were installed just in time for the holidays enabling this family to safely and comfortably gather outdoors to celebrate.
