Hillary Farr from Love it or List it with her Phantom Screen for French doors.

The need

Hilary Farr, a renowned interior designer and star of the popular home improvement TV series Love It or List It, needed a door screen that would let in the breeze without altering the design of the doorways. Wanting to connect the interior of her city home with the secluded and lush gardens outside, she looked for a solution that also would also maintain the views to the backyard.

Phantom Screens on Hillary Farr's home in Toronto Ontario.

The solution

Phantom’s Legacy screens were selected as the design-friendly option that would deliver relief from the bugs while letting in the breeze. The screens now connect the living room with an outdoor entertaining area, pulling out when needed and retracting into their color matched housings when not in use.

“Many of my clients have needed a screen that would not block their views and I don’t want my design compromised by fixed screens. I always recommend Phantom’s door screens as they really are perfect for every type of door.” – Hilary Farr, interior designer and co-host of the Love It or List It television show
