Today, we have the pleasure of exploring this remarkable house, where the homeowners, Mitch and Joy, have seamlessly integrated variations of Norman’s Honeycomb Shades throughout the property. Join us as we delve into the story behind this innovative choice and discover how it enhances both the aesthetic and practical aspects of life in Tassie.
“The Honeycomb Shades have been a fantastic transformational solution for us.” – Mitch
As we arrive at Mitch and Joy’s waterfront home, we are immediately captivated by its idyllic location and inviting ambience. Mitch warmly welcomes us, sharing the journey of transforming their house into a sanctuary that embraces the beauty of its surroundings. Situated by the bay, with panoramic views of the water, the home is a testament to Mitch and Joy’s love for coastal living and their desire to create a comfortable retreat that withstands the rigors of Tasmania’s ever-changing weather.
“We needed a solution that lets in the light and also provides insulation” – Mitch
Mitch explains how the Vertical Honeycomb Shades with Light Filtering fabric from Norman became the perfect solution for their home. Facing the challenges of Tasmania’s unpredictable climate, including chilly winters and scorching summers, Mitch and Joy needed window treatments that provided both insulation and light control. The innovative design of the Honeycomb Shades, with their insulating cellular structure, proved to be the ideal choice for maintaining a comfortable indoor environment year-round.
“The Honeycomb Shades provide protection from the UV Rays which over time would have an impact.” – Mitch
As we tour the house, we marvel at the versatility of the Portrait Honeycomb Motorised with Light Filtering, Blockout Fabric and Motorisation which have been tailored to suit the unique requirements of each space. In the bedrooms, motorised shades offer effortless light control and privacy, while providing total blackout for restful sleep.
“At night you can bring down the motorised shades with the remote control and you’ve got total blackout which is perfect for sleeping.” – Mitch
In Joy’s art studio, a lighter fabric allows ample natural light to flood the space, creating an inspiring environment for creativity to flourish. Mitch explains how the top-down, bottom-up lift system in the Portrait Honeycomb Shade is particularly well-suited for rooms facing the water, offering privacy without compromising the stunning views.
“We’ve gone for a lighter fabric [in the art studio] to let in more light which again just perfectly suits that environment” – Mitch.
One of the standout features of Norman’s Honeycomb Shades is their effortless operation and maintenance. Mitch demonstrates how the motorised shades can be controlled with a simple remote, allowing for precise adjustment with just the touch of a button. He also highlights the ease of cleaning and product care, reassuring us that the shades are designed to withstand the test of time with minimal maintenance required.
“I love the way Mitch and his family have chosen to use the Honeycomb shade throughout their entire home with different operating systems to suit the need of each opening.” – Catriona Rowntree
Through their thoughtful selection of Norman Honeycomb Shades, Mitch and Joy have not only enhanced the comfort and efficiency of their home but also preserved its natural beauty and serenity. They have created a space that is not only aesthetically pleasing but also practical, comfortable, and sustainable. As we continue to explore homes across Tasmania and beyond, let us be inspired by Mitch and Joy’s thoughtful approach to coastal living, where innovation meets tranquillity in perfect harmony.
