Annually, Budget Blinds® holds an Inspired Drapes® Design Contest to challenge our Style Consultants to take their design abilities in soft window treatments to the next level. The idea is for them to expand their horizons and design beautiful window treatments that could potentially win the first place and industry bragging rights!
Style Consultants from across the U.S. and Canada submitted their best designs for five categories—Combination Treatments, Curtains and Draperies, Decorative Hardware, Soft Shades, and Top Treatments. There were many contestants who entered and the first and second place winners were selected by a panel of industry judges. The winning designs are featured in the March/April issue of Window Fashion VISION magazine, a top publication for interior designers, window covering professionals and window fashion retailers.
Here are the winning designs from Budget Blinds’ third Inspired Drapes design competition:
Combination Treatment, First Place: Budget Blinds of Boise, ID, Style Consultant Quent Blodgett
Pairing dark wood shutters with patterned drapery added depth and richness to the windows. Layering these two window treatments allow for complete control of light. Both window coverings can be opened for a full view of the outdoors.
