Designer’s Top Picks - Laurie Clifton

Hunter Douglas Siluouette Window Shadings are great for beautiful views while softening the light.

Laurie Clifton, Design Consultant at Austin Window FashionsMeet Austin Window Fashions Design Consultant Laurie Clifton. Laurie has worked at the Austin showroom for the past year and has extensive window coverings knowledge from her experience as a Hunter Douglas representive. We asked Laurie to describe her dream home and what Hunter Douglas window coverings she would put in it:

"If I were to build my dream home, I would build a beautiful house on the beach in California. It would have large windows overlooking the Pacific Ocean. In having these large western facing windows, there will inevitably be bright sun from those beautiful sunsets and possibly some glare shinning into the house. In order to keep the amazing views, diffuse the bright sun, provide ultraviolet protection and reflect solar heat; I would install Silhouettes Window Shadings, my favorite Hunter Douglas product! Silhouettes are a Silhouette Window Shadings with Click and Walk Away 2 lifting systemperfect addition to any room. They provide softness to any décor due to the sheers on the front and back. They also provide daytime privacy while the vanes are open and complete nighttime privacy when the vanes are closed. I would select the new Ultra Glide 2 lift system  where you can lower and tilt the shades with one click of the cord, and raise the shades with short strokes of the retractable cord. It is so simple and effortless to operate even a large shade. To achieve room darkening in the bedrooms, I would upgrade to Silhouette A Deux illustration showing the lightblocking shade in the back for complete light control. Silhouette A Deux which combines a Silhouette shading with a room-darkening roller shade in a single headrail. The perfect combination to ensure a restful sleep and allow me to sleep in on the weekends instead of being awoken with the sun!"
