Roman Shades

Roman shades can be made with any fabric including unique sea grass and bamboo materials.  These shades look great especially with their perfectly folded sections and can be lined with blackout or cotton fabric.  We usually recommend to mount our Roman shades outside the frame of the window to create an elegant look.

Ripplefold Curtains Coconut Grove

This job in Coconut Grove came out just plain amazing!  The client picked a very unique and stylish  fabric from one of our Carole Fabrics books(we have their entire collection!).  It’s a thick linen fabric with an embroidered pattern, which provides just enough privacy for what our customer was looking for.  In addition, it still allows a nice glow of light to filter in from the bay during daylight hours.  Sewing the fabric into ripplefold curtains added the contemporary element to finish of the entire living room!  The ripplefold style forms a wavy, or “ripple” flow of fabric at the top as opposed to the traditional style of pinch pleated curtains.  We usually install the track on the ceiling where it blends in and gives the effect that the curtains are free floating!  These type of curtains have become very popular with our Miami clients, especially in condos and loft style units where a modern look is needed.  At Brown Design, we can make any type of curtain imaginable and from any fabric you choose!  We offer 100% guaranteed installation all throughout Miami and the South Florida area.

Miami Motorized Shades

Turn off the sun with a click of a button!!!  Motorized shades are great for large window areas or places that are unreachable manually.  They area also quite simply fun to use!!!  At Brown Design we have installed hundreds of motorized blackout and solar shades around Miami and the South Florida area.  We use the Somfy line of motors which is know world-wide as the industry leader for quality and noise control.  All of our Somfy motors come with a 5 year manufacturer warranty.  We can also motorize other products such as Roman shades and cellullar (honeycomb) shades.  If you live in Miami, you may have seen our installations in the Brickell Area restaurant Zuma, or just around the corner at Eastern National Bank.  We have also installed hundreds of motorized shade systems in Miami Beach condos, where glass walls facing the ocean can really amplify the sun.  We also take care of all the wiring with our in-house licensed electrician, which saves money versus the alternative of hiring an outside electrical company!

Custom Banded Curtains

If you can’t find that perfect fabric for your curtains, why not design your own?!  Our seamstresses can combine several fabrics to make banding of any size so you can achieve the exact look you want.  Our standard two-tone look usually constitutes a light neutral tone fabric for the top two-thirds of the curtain, while using a nice popping color for the lower one-third.  another alternative is vertical banding on the leading edges of the curtains(for a pair that would mean where the two panels meet-from top to bottom.  We like to use a 4 or 5 inch banding for this style.  We have been recently fabricating and installing a lot of banded curtains in Miami lately and the finished product has been fabulous!  This picture shows a gorgeous triple-toned curtain designed by Mary Azar over at Fine Line Furniture in Coral Gables.  Check out their website here:

Blackout Shades Miami

Not surprisingly, one of the most requested products that we sell here at Brown Design is blackout roller shades. The morning sun in Miami can be brutal, especially if you live on the beach! We offer several different fabrics to use with our shades, as well as side channels and fascia covers which go the extra mile blocking out light on the sides and top of our shades(see picture of our great way of dealing with blacking out corners!). Not only do they block light, but blackout roller shades also act as a great insulator against heat, saving you money on your electrical bill every month. It makes a nice afternoon nap even that more relaxing when you can just lay down in the bed, hit the remote control, and have our super quiet Somfy motors put the shades down for you!!! So call us in Miami or send us a request via the website link if you would like to set up a free estimate for blackout roller shades!

Wood Blinds in Miami

Wood blinds are one of the more classic ways to cover a window. They are very economical and can really put the finishing touch on a room if coordinated correctly–practically like adding new furniture!!! Brown Design offers both real wood and faux wood(for humid areas to resist warping). Wood blinds are very good insulators against heat or cold, and can be either tilted or raised completely up to let control light. These products can usually be installed within 1 week from date of deposit in the Miami and South Florida area!

Get your blinds for the Miami summer!

Yes it looks like we are getting an early summer here in Miami! That means time for some nice solar shades or blackout curtains to stop that hot sun that’s been blasting through your window in the morning!!! Our solar shades come with a lifetime guarantee on the lifting mechanisms, so you can count on the quality of all the blinds we sell to our Miami customers. Been seeing a lot of sale in the Sunny Isles area lately, the real estate market must be heating up as well!!!
