  • Crisp white shades are accented with teal banding to coordinate with the counter stools and dining table end chairs.
  • Patterned drapery panels on the large windows in the dining area enhance the teal accent color of the Roman shades.

First Place: Soft Shades 

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. The crisp white shades above the sink are accented with teal banding, to coordinate with the counter stools and dining table end chairs. To complement the Roman Shades and enhance the teal accent color, patterned drapery panels frame large windows in the dining area (shown on the previous page) and the living room (not shown). “Our designer, Kelly Halderman, worked with the builder and he provided cornice boxes that work seamlessly with the woodwork,” said Blodgett.

“After working with several customers on custom draperies, I decided it was time to give my office a makeover and create a place that customers could come and gain inspiration for the projects,” said Blodgett.

An odd-size room with awkwardly positioned commercial windows placed right next to a column, the space had multiple challenges. “I chose the shutter and drapery combination because it’s a personal favorite, but also because we’ve had many customers who seem to believe these two cannot (or should not) be paired together,” explained Blodgett. The ceiling-mounted panels are another “teaching moment” as they allow Blodgett to show a design that not all are familiar with, but they also deal with some installation issues die to the commercial windows and the abutting column.

“Green and gold are my motivational colors and when used with the dark brown walls, it’s a color theme that words for the accessories and rugs to really create a welcoming space,” he adds.

“A custom-made oversize desk (not shown) allows Blodgett to spread out design plans and samples in order to work comfortably with clients and his team. “I now love welcoming customers to my office and enjoy helping them find their inspiration!”
