Budget Blinds® Featured in Window Fashion VISION Magazine

A Budget Blind’s Style Consultant was recently featured in Window Fashion VISION, a leading industry expert’s magazine, the July/August 2016 issue. VISION magazine showcased Kelly Halderman, window covering designer and drapery specialist, of Budget Blinds serving Boise, on pages 30-34. Kelly and an interior designer had a major challenge on their hands to help transform a couple’s home into a Modern Mission style. The homeowners wanted to make these changes without altering the architecture of their home and needed Budget Blinds to help.

Transforming the Living Room

The living room has a large arched window that just did not fit the couple’s desired style. Instead of replacing the window, Kelly had to think of another solution using her drapery skills. To hide the arch of the window, she designed a straight cornice with stationary side panels mounted underneath. The cornice squared off the window creating the new Modern Mission vibe without ruining their lovely view. The 18-foot cornice was beautifully upholstered in a rich pattern, the perfect complement for their existing window treatments, a motorized honeycomb shade and an exterior solar screen.

Altering His-and-Her Study:

The next room that had to be redesigned was the his-and-hers study located near the front of the home. The homeowners liked their existing wood blinds, but again wanted to cover the window’s arch. Using a similar approach as in the living room, a faux Roman shade was used as a valance to cover the arch over the existing wood blinds. This created a gorgeous combination that accomplished the homeowner’s goal.

Matching the Bedroom

“The customer had looked for bedding, but hadn’t found exactly what she wanted, which was a bedspread that went to the bottom of the bedframe, instead of a comforter/bed skirt combination,” said Halderman. Kelly knew a Budget Blinds custom designed bedspread seemed like a perfect solution. A beautiful Mission-stylebedspread with clean lines complements the drapery colors, and square accent pillows in the same patterned drapery fabric were designed for exactly the look the homeowner wanted.

Budget Blinds helped to beautifully accomplish the task by incorporating the homeowners’ Modern Mission style. “It was great to come up with something outside the box or, in this case, the window! It is always fun to have a collaboration of ideas come together, especially when the clients love the finished project,” explained Halderman. Let Budget Blinds help make your dream style a reality.
