Desert Mountain, AZ
All of these shade panels were custom colored to match a Sherman Williams paint. Throughout this home we installed both daytime privacy shades in an 8% openness factor and in a blackout fabric. Some areas such as the primary room have a dual system. Shades and motors are Lutron, controlled by the IOS app and with bidirectional feedback toggled into control 4 to allow for system control.
This project includes Lutron driven, light filtering and black out roller shades that are mounted in builder provided pockets. Light filtering shades are designed for privacy and UV protection, but allow for the natural light to come through. Black out shades are in the bedrooms for room darkening. Custom made stationary drapery panels hang from acrylic rods, rings, and matching modern-style finials.

We were brought onto this project four years ago in 2016 during the architectural design, to spec out builder provided pockets that would house our shades. Some of the ceiling space throughout this home has poplar wood work, so we constructed the shade pocket enclosures to match by adding the same wood detail as the ceiling.
The two colossal shades in the first three photographs span 24 feet wide by 25 feet tall. The fabric chosen here is a 5% Basketweave, in color Charcoal/Charcoal. The black out shade fabric for the bedrooms was imported from Spain which offers a subtle shimmer effect when light is reflected off of it. Notice the spectacular view of Camelback Mountain!

These Lutron motorized shades were programmed to operate via IOS app, and control 4. Roller shades were applied throughout the entire home (and casita) along with operational and stationary, draperies and valances. Roller shade fabrics are in a 4% daytime privacy and 0% blackout. Drapery style is a two finger pleat tacked at the top, and were lined with either light filtering or blackout fabrics. The valances are a mock pleated style. All window treatments were custom fabricated, installed, and photographed by Pacific Shades. We are currently the only company to offer a ten year Lutron motor warranty.
For this master suite hallway we fabricated motorized knife edge roman shades, in gold silk fabric from Italy. Drapery side panels are stationary, with two finger pinch pleats tacked at the bottom and french trim tassels. Decorative ribbed wood rods and rings with a custom gold finish were selected. In the master bedroom box pleated valances house motorized sheers, and drapery panels. Roman shades, side panels, draperies, and valances are all lined with black out lining.
This exterior retractable awning is 28 feet wide with a 12 foot projection. This type of awning has an adjustable pitch. The exterior fabric is in color Silca Silver and hardware color is in Sand. It is made with Gortex threading. Operation is with a hand held remote, and a motion sensor was installed so that it will automatically close should certain weather conditions arise. Adding this type of extension expands your outdoor space, protects from glare and UV, and increases insulation for both cooling and heating. Our client loves how much better their outdoor heaters work!!
A RESORT TOWN IN MICHIGAN
This is an artistic rendering of a project we are working on, along with an elite team of professionals from all trades. Interestingly the trades on the project are from all over the country. This house is being designed and built as a turnkey. Estimated to sell around $11 million.
We built scaffolding to install these mammoth exterior motorized shades, approximately 60 feet from the ground. The application used here is zip shade technology, which uses a zipper-like system where the sides of the shade panels zip into side channels. This creates tension on the shades and keeps them in place. Fabric is Textilene, in 95%, color is Charcoal Black.
These roller shades are driven by re-chargeable battery motors, and the drapery panel is driven by 110vt of constant power. This inverted pleat style drapery was custom made. Two contrasting fabrics were sewn together and were lined with blackout fabric. All window coverings are operational through hand held remotes.
Scottsdale Condominium, Arizona
This client moved into a brand new condominium building that came with manually operated roller shades. We converted them into battery motorized shades. These shades provide daytime only privacy, so we also installed motorized room darkening shades. These not only darken the room but provide total privacy, creating a dual shade application. Shades now operate via hand held remotes vs. bead chains.
This client needed sun control and privacy, but wanted a subtle solution that did not block their view. These motorized roller shades with an openness factor of 10% allows for greater visibility out, and was matched to their interior paint color. The videos below show this subtlety. (Video 1 the shades are in the up position, and video 2 they are down). We also fabricated custom made matching draperies, and bedding. Bolster style pillows were chosen for a more modern and minimalistic look.

Two exterior motorized shades were installed and mounted onto this exposed steel-beamed, back patio. This European fabric has an aluminum face exposed to the sun, optimizing sun and heat deflection. A wind sensor was also installed so that this shades will automatically close when winds exceed 30 MPH.
Operation is via handheld remote.
CHARLOTTE AMALIE, U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS
A gold and royal blue brocade silk fabric was imported for this master suite. Pleat style is three finger pinch, tacked at the bottom. Draperies were lined with both interlining and blackout fabrics. Lutron motors were programmed to operate via IOS devices and hand held remotes.
Custom silk pillows were fabricated for the lounge and chairs.
For privacy on the master suite balcony, a nautical style exterior fabric was made using grommets and a dual cable system to help keep the fabric in place.
Paradise Valley, AZ
This custom home mixed rustic with elegance through out, so the same type of fabrics were chosen for the window applications. Interior roller shades were motorized using high end fabric that enhance the beautiful views. The colossal exterior shade was out of specification, so we worked directly with the engineer to have it custom made. Other applications included stationary rod pocket sheers, manual draperies, motorized honey comb shades, and a tension shade with scalloped edging had a hand crocheted trim and tassel added to it.
tHE ARIZONA Biltmore
We had the honor of working on this project for the Wright’s Restaurant at the Arizona Biltmore Resort. This resort was built in 1929 with Mr. Frank Lloyd Wright as a consulting architect. We removed the old existing motorized and manual awnings. With fabric imported from France, new awnings were fabricated and installed.
This master bedroom utilizes both motorized roller shade screens for daytime privacy, and motorized blackout lined ripplefold draperies for total privacy and room darkening. The ripplefold style of these draperies are a favorite of architects and interior designers because they create a clean, streamline, and effortlessly flowing look during operation.
Organic grasses from Asia were used to fabricate these hand woven motorized roman shades. Shades travel either from the top down or bottom up, and were integrated for use through an IOS app configuration as well as through wall mount switches and hand held remote controls. Motorized and manual drapery panels were also added and have matching cornices.
This 16th floor condominium looks over Lake Michigan and North Western University. Custom rear tuck style roman shades were chosen by the designer and client. They selected a neutral fabric with black out lining for room darkening, and the shades were motorized with Somfy motors which operate via hand held remote controls.
