Tranquility at Last!

Smith+Noble recently announced its newest light-blocking line of shades, aptly named “Tranquility.”  Behold the power of innovation: these shades got me blogging again!  If I had or was expecting a newborn, I’d easily forego four months of lattés to jump on these immediately!

Smith + Noble Tranquility shades solve pesky nursery “light leak” right within the window frame, with a sleek set of side tracks that hold blinds flush, eliminating the frustrating problem of light escaping out the sides, despite layer upon layer of light-blocking this-and-that.  Tranquility is currently offered in roller and cellular styles, with the latter offering additional insulation benefits – an eco-friendly choice in a particularly sunny window.  Custom sizing gets you a perfect fit, and the side tracks are held in place with stick-on magnetic strips, making them relatively easy to install, adjust, or remove for cleaning.

Folks needing an outside mount light-blocker are out of luck for the moment – for you, we continue to recommend the heavy-duty light-blocking curtain liners offered by folks like Pottery Barn.

Looking to outfit a nursery or child’s room?  A Cordless lift system is available (+$60/ea shade) and recommended.

Custom sizing means a custom price, but you should expect about $300 for a 3/4″ Blackout Cellular Tranquility Shade with standard options.  Smith+Noble runs frequent discounts (like 30% off on an order of 3 or more) so if you play your cards right, or maybe tackle two rooms at once, you can usually get a good deal.  At any rate, new parents know, and those expecting will soon discover: a good night’s sleep is priceless…
