Automatic Shades Videos


The Garden Pavillion in Brookline is an extremely impressive home, which required equally impressive window treatments. Enter: Back Bay Shutter Company. Here Steve and Bill discuss one of their favorite projects and its challenges, with designer Susan Reddick.


The owners of this stylish private residence in the downtown Boston Mandarin Hotel wanted their shades to be room darkening, easy to use and able to be controlled through a home automation system. They also needed the shades to disappear into the windows when open, so they didn’t block the fabulous city view. A tall order? Take a listen to what Steve and Bill, and collaborator, Blair Hamity of Setting Spaces, had to say about it


This Brookline home had its own set of challenges, involving a bedroom that needed shades, but windows that couldn’t accommodate them, as well as a library in need of a stylish option to block the full-on sunlight that hit the owner’s computer screen. The happy client talks about the project, and owners Bill and Steve discuss how they pulled it off.
