She's been working in the window coverings industry for over 10 years and has been at our San Antonio location for the past four years. We asked Brittany to share with us her Top Picks when it come to Hunter Douglas window coverings. Here's what she said:

"I would have to say my favorite Hunter Douglas product is the Pirouette Window Shadings. Hunter Douglas Pirouette Window Shadings are sheer and versital in the dinning room. I have done this product many times for customers in situations where there are several windows in a row (and some have been very large) and the Pirouette looks stunning in mass!  I love that it looks like a Roman Shade when closed, soft and elegant, then to have the ability to “open” it and look thru the sheer backing is great.  That gives daytime privacy, while being able to see outside.  Then, the fact that it will raise and roll up inside of the headrail, leaving the window wide open is perfect.  Bottom line is this product gives you various levels of privacy and light control unlike most any other product out there.  In my dream home, I would definitely motorize this shade!  I think this is best suited for living rooms and dining rooms in a light filtering fabric, and in a master suite in a room darkening fabric.  Also, if any ladies are lucky enough to have their own “Diva Den” (our version of a “man cave”)  there are some awesome fabrics that have a little shimmer and great colors to really make a statement!
Duette Architella Honeycomb Shades are beautiful and energy efficient.On a more practical note, another favorite is the Duette Honeycomb Shade.  The Architella construction gives the best energy efficiency, and that is so important here with our hot Texas summers.  It is also one of the best for room darkening (think media rooms, kids rooms etc.).  The Duette also offers wonderful fabric colors and textures, sure to work with and complement any décor.  I love this product with the Top-down/Bottom-up feature and either the LiteRise cordless or the Ultra Glide retractable cord system.  I like to recommend layering this product with drapery panels on the sides to soften the look, and add a dimension or pop of color."
