Meet our best new SelectBlinds products of 2022. At least so far.
Our fashion-savvy Creative Director, Shannon Constance, walks us through what products and colors we released this year that she personally loves, and why she loves them. We think you’ll fall in love with some of them, too.
Best New Colors in Cellulars: Premier Blackout Cellulars
“The Premier Cellulars, in my opinion, are the perfect cellular shades,” Shannon says. “They are high-quality cellular shades for a reasonable price and with so many different options for lift styles, depending on your needs.”
She goes on to note that, “This year we launched some beautiful new colors in our blackout line that have a soft, relaxing tonal quality. They are a great first step if you want to get out of your comfort zone of ‘neutral’ space into more relaxing, sun-bleached vibes.”
As for her favorite colors in this blackout cellular shade, Shannon goes with Sand Tan.
“If we’d offered this color when I bought my own Premier Blackout Cellulars, this is the color I would have chosen,” she admits good-humoredly.
C’est la vie.
Best New Colors in Romans: Lakeshore Colors for Our Classic Roman Shades
“Our Classic Roman Shades are our most popular Roman,” Shannon says. “Like its name, it is a ‘classic,’ and perfect if you are looking for a slightly more tailored, but soft look. It is a great window covering for any room but I especially love them in dining rooms.”
Shannon references the shades’ “casual, but tailored look that allows them to dress up a formal space without making it feel stuffy or uptight.”
“This summer we launched three beautiful colors to go with our Lakeshore Stripe,” she continues. “What I love about these fabrics is that they are striped so they feel ‘nautical,’ like they belong near the water, but they have quite a bit of varied texture to them that creates a more organic, and less traditional stripe.”
“If you’re looking for a new take on nautical but are tired of the expected traditional stripe, these lakeshore colors are worth looking at,” Shannon assures. “Order samples just to see all the textures that are woven into these colors. They won’t disappoint.”
Best New Rollers: Little Dreamers Kids’ Collection
This year we launched our kids’ patterns into roller shades (previously only available in curtains).
“These rollers are great for kids’ rooms because they are easy to clean and they are only available in cordless options,” Shannon says. “Safety for those kiddos is our number one priority.”
She goes on to say that “these patterns are worth designing an entire room around what you do with the window. After all, sleep is the most important thing for any kid. Might as well pick a shade that’s functional and adorable all at once.”
Shannon’s “fave pattern is the rainbow.”
“We’ve taken the traditional rainbow and created it in an array of super cool and unexpected colors,” she says. “I mean, come on! We have a mid-century rainbow color for the cool mom that wants the vibe of her home to transition all the way to her kid’s room but which is still delightful and intriguing for the little one, too. We also have colorful kids’ curtains if you’re looking for a layered look that pairs perfectly.”
Best New Colors in Woven Woods: Classic Woven Woods
“Woven woods are all the rage this year from a trend perspective,” Shannon asserts. “If you are watching any design show these days, you are likely to see woven woods in the windows. If you’re new to wovens our Classic Woven Woods are a great choice: simple, budget-friendly, and chic. This product doesn’t have a liner option and is best for spaces where you are looking for a light-filtering, ambient effect with less concern for privacy.”
Shannon goes on to discuss how we decided to create four new colors with a tighter weave that allows for a bit more coverage than the other colors.
“The combination of this tighter weave paired with unexpected colors makes these super cool and unique in comparison to other wovens,” she says.
Best New Faux Woods: 2” Designer Faux Wood Blinds
“If you live in a humid or hot environment and are looking for a traditional approach for your windows then these faux wood blinds are for you,” Shannon says. “They look like and offer the visual feel of real wood, but are more durable for these types of climates.”
Shannon goes on to share that our 2” Designer Faux Wood Blind is one of her favorites because she “thinks every detail has been very well thought through.”
“The color palette spans a wide range, from cool to warm, for starters,” she says. “The textures captured in the slats are so close to the real thing, in my opinion, and my favorite feature of all? The color of the ladders (the cords that suspend the slats up) are perfectly paired to the slat color so that they blend in well so as to not distract from the beauty of the blinds themselves.”
