Designer’s Top Picks- Myra Simone

Alustra Woven Roman Shades and Silhouette Window Shadings are both beautiful designer picks

Myra Simone, Design Consultant at Austin Window FashionsMeet Austin Window Fashions Design Consultant Myra Simone.

Myra came to work for Austin Window Fashions in October 2015. "I’ve been working in interior design in one capacity or another for the past 12 years. I graduated with a BFA from UT and went straight to work for a custom drapery workroom where we fabricated everything from decorative pillows to the draperies at the Governor’s mansion. After which I worked for an interior designer.  There we did mostly high design new construction, think Kelley Wearstler."

We asked Myra to share her Designer's Top Picks with us:
"One of my favorite Hunter Douglas products is the Silhouette. Although there are a few vertical options I think this product in particular is a great solution for those large sliding glass doors. It has a great selection of fabrics and textures and easy operation with the one click and walk away function of the new UltraGlide operating system. The sheer shading have the added function of being able to view through them when they are down and the vanes are open as well as offering great UV protection for fabrics and wood flooring. The Silhouette effortlessly adds elegance and sophistication to any space."

"Another product I really like are the Alustra Woven Textures Roman shades. They give you the look of a traditional roman shade. They have a really nice stack at the top of the window and can be made with or without an independent liner. What is nice about the independent liner is the added functionality. For example in a bedroom if you like natural light but need it really dark to sleep the room darkening liner is ideal. You can raise it during the day to allow light in but keep the shade down to maintain privacy or you can raise both shades to have a completely unobstructed view."
