Every Saturday morning over two million viewers join Marc & Mandy to catch the latest hot topics and trends in home décor. Previously, the highly energetic couple featured Budget Blinds® to discuss window covering trends, shutters and various shutter options, and child-safe window treatments. On October 8th, Budget Blinds returned for another guest appearance to talk about natural woven shades from their new and exclusive Inspired Shades Collection™. Franchise owner and professional Style Consultant, Sue Swarbrick of Budget Blinds serving Southwest Manitoba, showed viewers why Budget Blinds natural woven shades are the ultimate in soft and elegant window treatments.
Natural Woven Shades
The Inspired Shades Collection was exclusively designed for and by a team of internal designers and Budget Blinds partners, including textile and print experts and production specialists, and features designs and patterns that are on trend, bright and versatile, and made from eco-friendly, natural fibers. Sue first presented a trendy blue natural woven shade made of fibers like jute, kenaf, flax and hemp; which creates a soft and elegant organic look and feel. This particular shade was embellished with a silk edge-binding to create a high-end design and comes in 12 colours to choose from depending on your style preference.
Next Sue discussed how the Budget Blinds natural woven shades are created using a farm-to-table approach, where designers and textile experts combine unique blends of soft, natural fibers- like hemp, jute, and flax- and weave them into the thinnest threads to create the lightest durable natural shades possible. Budget Blinds designers are constantly pulling inspiration from current design trends to give their customers the fashion-forward looks that they want in window coverings. She showed a natural bamboo shade that is unlike traditional woven shades that are typically heavy, rustic and limited to natural colors of bamboo and wood. This shade has a major bonus with motorization which lowers and raises the shade with a touch of a button.
Natural woven shades are all about superior colour, construction, and design. With inspiration from trending Pantone colors, there are 38 unique blends of natural fibers in this collection to match any home décor. Made from organic materials, they are the ultimate eco-friendly window treatment that is 100% recyclable. They are made with soft fibers which can create very sheer shades, or they can be paired with a liner that will allow for more privacy and security and block out harmful UV rays. Also, they come with optional child-safe operating systems like continuous cord loop, cordless lift, wand control, and motorization to make your home safe for children and pets.
Lastly, Sue describes how a stunning cordless blue woven wood can be paired with drapery panels to add a bit of eye candy to your window. The colour-block drapery infused a similar blue to the shade with a popular grey colour on the bottom half (not pictured). The grey also was incorporated at the top with the gathered tabs. The window treatment was finished off with gorgeous high fashion decorative hardware. Sue gave the viewers two options of glass or iron finials to take the drapery to the next level.
