PEARL RIVER, N.Y., April 17, 2014 – First popularized by the canvases of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian, color-blocking – literally creating patterns utilizing intersecting blocks of primary colors – is everywhere this year.  “It’s making its way into apparel and these patchworks of color are showing up where it counts in home fashions as well, including carpets, textiles and window treatments,” says Barbara Schirmeister, color and design
consultant for Hunter Douglas, the leading name in custom window fashions.

Color-blocking with window treatments is easy with the company’s new Roller Shades and Skyline® Gliding Window Panels offering. The shared fabric collection includes vibrant colors that are very “now” as well as a variety of interesting textures and patterns.

Color-blocking can even have its place in your home’s media room since Hunter Douglas Roller Shades will darken a room more effectively with new Blockout side and sill channels.
