Adding Some Sparkle to Your Home

Alustra® Pirouette Window Shadings in the Dining Room

Maybe you’re bored with the dull look of your home. Or maybe you would just like to spice it up a notch. Either way, one thing to consider is adding a sparkly, metallic look. To see how it might look in your home, speak with a trained consultant at Altra Home Décor serving Phoenix today.

Window Treatments Have Metallic Flair

Metallic surfaces are more popular than ever. Silver, bronze, and gold are not just for your kitchen anymore. Today’s Hunter Douglas Alustra® Collection allows you to combine their beautiful fabrics with today’s hottest metallic hardware. Gone are the days of trying to cover up the headrail and hardware of your window treatments. Today’s Alustra® hardware is designed to be showcased. Sure to be a conversation piece, many of the Alustra® products offer hardware in:

  • Bronze Shimmer
  • Gold Radiance
  • Silver Reflection
  • Champagne Shine


Metallic fabrics layered with selections from the Hunter Douglas Alustra® Collection sheers are making an appearance in living rooms and bedrooms all across the country. If you just want to add a splash, consider a stunning metallic fabric as side panels to frame your windows. While layering is popular, the overall look remains clean, and the palette should be consistent for both the hard and soft treatments.

Modern Precious Metal

If the Alustra® Collection is not what you had in mind, but you still want the sleek metallic look, consider the Hunter Douglas modern precious metal aluminum blinds. These blinds combine both fashion and durability. Hunter Douglas has included enticing finishes along with trendy colors and wood accents so you can personalize your blinds. This metal blind collection has been designed with a younger, more modern consumer in mind.

Just a Touch of Glimmer

When used in moderation, adding a few metallic touches here and there can instantly make your space look more glamorous. The key word, of course, is moderation. Finding the right harmony may be easier than you think. You should balance the metallic touches in your home with something soft and textured. Complement fuzzy throw pillows with a hammered copper display piece. Brighten up a darkened hallway with a metallic framed mirror. Both the mirror and the metallic edging will reflect the light to brighten the space. When in doubt, start small and build from there.
