Interior shades @ Beverly Hills Residence

We recently completed an exciting project using Lutron QED solar shades and a drapery in a home with beautiful views. There were many corners and wide doors, so we did butt pass shades and broke up our panels at the mulions, as usual. In the office below picture, you can see corner with a butt pass situation.
