It’s time for the spring 2021 One Room Challenge™! Sponsored by Better Homes & Gardens, Louver Shop joins a roster of premium home décor products and brand sponsors. We’ve partnered with a hand-selected designer to transform a room while a national audience follows their progress.

Better Homes & Gardens sponsors the One Room Challenge twice each year during the spring and fall. Twenty design influencers are invited as Featured Designers to redesign a space over eight weeks in their homes. Every Wednesday, the designers document their process while sharing inspiration, sources and professional advice. For the spring 2021 event, their interior design is complete by June 24. Louver Shop is proud to offer a variety of window treatments for use in this year’s challenge.

Susan Hill Interior Design needed new window treatments for her family’s gaming room to deliver both high-end design and functionality. As the #1 American-made shutter brand, Louver Shop was the perfect fit. Craig Amick with Louver Shop of Charlotte worked directly with Susan in crafting the perfect custom shutters. They have been developed specifically with Susan’s design in mind to bring the room to life.

Louver Shop can offer you the same expertise. Elevate your interior design with our wide range of quality window treatments. Manufactured in the United States, durable materials meet stunning design.

Meet Susan Hill, Our Featured Designer

Susan Hill is the CEO and Principal Designer of Susan Hill Interior Design. She is an award-winning licensed interior designer specializing in architectural and interior design as well as construction. Examples of her work can be found in many different publications.

Susan adopts a “function first” approach for her designs. Each space is built around her client’s unique lifestyle and business goals. Practicality blends together with robust perspective, influenced by her extensive travels around the world. Clients have the opportunity to incorporate themselves more closely into their home décor, where the final products reveal depth and confidence.

Winning the One Room Challenge

Susan’s strengths are clear in her plan for her family’s game room—the space she’ll be transforming over the course of the One Room Challenge.

“When Better Homes & Gardens asked me to be a featured designer, my kids suggested right away that I change our playroom over to a gaming room,” Susan said. “I was excited when I saw Louver Shop was a sponsor, because shutters are the perfect way to be able to manage privacy and light.”

This partnership demonstrates what creative expertise can accomplish with quality sources. “My firm specializes in architectural design and construction,” Susan explained. “The majority of what we do is try to create a classic, clean foundation. We consider privacy treatments to be part of that.”

The design itself focuses on crisp horizontal lines while pops of charcoal catch the eye (a specific request from Susan’s daughter) in the trim, outlet covers and a few furniture pieces. Susan will be incorporating classic Louver Shop shutters with the PerfectView™ Louver Control System. By hiding the tilt bar from view, our custom plantation shutters offer functional sophistication.

Susan appreciates the simplicity. “I tend to follow the design principles that the Romans and Greeks executed so well—especially repetition. If I’ve got horizontal lines in a room, I prefer for those to be continuous so I can carry them throughout the room. Without the divider and vertical rod in the shutters, I’ll be able to have very clean lines while controlling the light in the room.”
