The Window Covering Safety Council Partners
With Design Star Kim Myles
Chic and Cordless is In Style Every Season
New York, NY (September 23, 2014) – The Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC), a coalition of major U.S. manufacturers, importers and retailers of window coverings dedicated to educating parents and caregivers to only use cordless window covering products in homes with young children, has partnered with interior design expert and TV personality, Kim Myles.
According to the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), corded window coverings are one of the top five hidden dangers in American homes, with infants and children dying each year from accidentally strangling in window cords. Do-It-Yourself designer Kim Myles has partnered with the Council to help promote and demonstrate affordable, fun ways in which families can incorporate cordless products into a child’s room while ensuring cord safety.
“I am thrilled to partner with the Window Covering Safety Council to help raise awareness around cord safety in the homes with young children, and help families find ways to incorporate style while creating a safe environment for their loved ones,” said Kim Myles, Designer and OWN’s TV personality. “Whether you’re a homeowner or renter, there are several simple ways to redesign your living space so it is safe for kids.”
Kim Myles was voted by millions of Americans as the 2007 winner of HGTV’s “Design Star”, and her creative spark ignited her own show on HGTV called “Myles of Style” for three seasons. You can find Kim’s stylish designs on OWN’s Emmy nominated “Home Made Simple” and by flipping through InStyle, Better Homes and Gardens, and People magazines. Kim has also appeared as a host and designer on shows like “HGTV’d” and “America’s Biggest Yard Sale.”
“We look forward to working with Kim Myles on our cord safety consumer awareness program, leveraging her distinct design expertise to bring parents and caregivers decor tips that also foster a safe environment for young children,” said Window Covering Safety Council (WCSC) Executive Director, Peter Rush.
