Quent Blodgett – Budget Blinds of Boise, ID
The client for this new home build is a busy mom of five (including a set of twins) and was eight months pregnant when Quent Blodgett and his team began working on window treatment designs. The overall style throughout the home is a contemporary take on traditionalism and the classic look of Roman Shades fit her design sensibility.
“My client wanted a cornice to hide the hardware used for the motorized drapery panels we done for her,” explained Cora Sutherland. “She wanted to use the same white fabric as the draperies on the cornice, but not only that fabric, as she felt it would be too plain. My instructions were to come up with something that would complement the dark walls and flooring.”
Sonie Skogerson – Budget Blinds of Paramus & Westwood, NJ
Looking to replace dark brown draperies for a brighter, more updated style, the client fell in love with the Art-Deco style cornice. Gold trim in a Greek key design accentuates the stepped edge while coordinating with other furnishings in the room.
Dan & Jessica Martinez – Budget Blinds of West Calgary, AB
“Our client for this project is the mother of a previous client,” said Dan Martinez. “She was helping her daughter during our consultation and was very impressed with our knowledge, expertise, and professionalism. When she decided to remodel her own condo, she called on us.”
Brian and Tammy Connor – Budget Blinds of Terre Haute, IN
The massive windows in this living room can be seen from the foyer and the dining room. The client wanted an amazing space that was still family friendly. The designer for this project had a clear vision but relied on the expertise of the Budget Blinds team to move from the concept to actual design and installation.
Onofrio and Mary Ann DeMattia – Budget Blinds of Howard Beach, NY
Onofrio and Mary Anne DeMattia had already installed Illusion shades the previous year in this sunroom-slash-living room. When the client reached out to ask for something to soften the stark look of the blinds, the DeMattia’s understood that the expansive views remained a priority.
Stephanie Wojcik – Budget Blinds of Naperville, IL
For this sunroom the client requested a traditional treatment that incorporated red accents from the attached kitchen. The design also needed to work with the treatments planned for the nearby great room and formal dining room.
