Motorized window treatments offer convenience on floor-to-ceiling windows
Jan 5 2011
For the 15th annual HGTV Dream Home Sweepstakes, viewers will be casting their entries for a chance to win a new home with modern architecture in a rustic mountain setting.
Motorized blinds or shades are a good choice for large windows.
According to the home design network, it's the first HGTV home built in Vermont. The mountain retreat offers a gourmet kitchen, three bedrooms, three and one-half bathrooms, and some unusual spaces within the structure located at Stowe Mountain Resort.
For instance, as many a eight guests can be accommodated in a ski dorm outfitted with bunk beds. Rugs, ottomans and bed ensembles are in bold, earthy colors. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer a view of the mountains. For large windows such as these, motorized shades or blinds allow the homeowner to open or close the window treatments either by battery-operated remote control or through electrical wall switches.
The dream home's interior designer Linda Woodrum chose furniture, fabrics and accessories that pay homage to both the rustic outdoors and modern interiors. A traditional Parson's style dining table is surrounded by chrome and black leather chairs, as one example of this juxtaposition of styles.
"We wanted to create a ski house but, more importantly, a retreat or a lodge that really created a sense of repose and relaxation," architect Paul Robert Rousselle told HGTV.com.
