Upgrade your window
treatments the easy way.
Ambiance Design is a family-owned Hunter Douglas Centurion Gallery in Blue Bell, PA. We specialize in Hunter Douglas window treatments. We also offer custom draperies and soft treatments, bedding, wallpaper, and upholstery.
When you work with us, you become part of the family.
We get how frustrating it can be to upgrade your window treatments. As a small, locally-owned business, we’re here to make the whole process easy, from start to finish.
We believe your home should be a source of comfort, not frustration. But when it comes to home décor projects, a lot can go wrong.
On the front end, it’s easy to get overwhelmed by choices. Installing window treatments is harder than it might seem. And not all window treatments age gracefully. Without a good product and warranty, your investments could turn sour before their time.
Air Force veteran Laura Hawley knew there was a better way. After almost 10 years working for Hunter Douglas, she saw the power of a great product and expert service. She believed so much in Hunter Douglas that when she lost her job in the 2008 recession, she decided stick with the brand as a dealer.
In 2008, she founded Ambiance Designs. Her goal: To help families in the Montgomery County, Bucks County, and Philadelphia areas finish their home décor projects with ease. In 2013, her husband Dan Hawley joined her as co-owner.
Today, they run our small team of Hunter Douglas-certified design consultants and installers. Our mission is to make upgrading your window treatments simple, enjoyable, and stress-free.
