Designer’s Top Picks - Mary Hudson

Hunter Douglas Silhouette's and Pirouette's are both beautiful and modern.

Mary Hudson, Design Consultant, Window Fashions of TexasMary Hudson is one of our most experienced and knowledgeable Design Consultants at Window Fashions of Texas. She's been with the company for 11 years and has over 23 years experience in the window coverings industry. We asked Mary to share with us her favorite Hunter Douglas window coverings that she would like to have in her home. Here's her Top-Picks:

"If I could put anything on my windows, my first choice would be the Hunter Douglas Pirouette shades and of course, Powerrise!  I love the 5” Grande, Satin Metallic fabric in the color Lightning.  It looks amazing, especially on large windows side by side.  The look is modern, rich and sophisticated. You can lower them for complete privacy, raise them for an open view, or have them lowered and open like a blind, for just the right light control and privacy level. Hunter Doulgas Pirouette Privacy Sheers are modern and beautiful.I would use the room darkening option in all the bedrooms, have a hand held remote control by each nightstand, and add the Platinum App bridge, so I could operate the shades from anywhere, on my iPad or iPhone.
In the other areas of the house, I would use the PowerRise Silhouette light filtering shades, and of course, the 4” vane. It allows for a great view, but still offers privacy and light control when needed. My favorite color is Ink Sketch, and yes, it’s black. It’s sexy, modern, and just stunning! Black is often thought of too harsh, or that it would stand out too much, but it’s quite the opposite, it really retracts and becomes just like wearing your sunglasses. You have better view than you would a lighter colored shade.  It just looks rich, rich, rich!" Hunter Douglas Silhouette Window Shadings in black are sexy and stunning!
