    Welcome to Gunnison and Crested Butte, Colorado, where we have beautiful mountain views that we love looking at through windows adorned with our amazing Blinds and Window Treatments! Here at our Budget Blinds branch, we love recognizing all of the great team members that make us who we are—and that’s why we’re going to take some time today to recognize Rory Murphey.

    Rory is one of our Design Consultants, having started here in July of 2019—and she brings so many great things to our team. She’s got encyclopedic knowledge of our products, which gives her the ability to make fantastic recommendations, help customers solve problems and create fresh new designs, and find the most stylish solutions possible. She also has fantastic customer service skills, and she loves meeting new people. All of that is what makes this an ideal role for her—there’s lots of variety, and according to her, you get a different experience every day.

    Rory has spent her life enjoying the western slopes. She grew up in Gunnison and Cedar Edge, and these days, she lives in the area with her husband, a one-year-old daughter, a five-year-old son, and two dogs.

    When she’s not here at work with us, you can find her spending time with her family and friends. She also loves cooking, reading—and of course, being outdoors in our beautiful landscape.

And when the football hits the turf, you'll find Carter right there, soaking in the excitement of a football-filled day.

    Amber Farr

    Installation Technician

    Let's give a big round of applause to our amazing Installer, Amber Farr, who joined our Budget Blinds family on September 9, 2021!


    Amber brings an incredible set of skills to our team, making her an invaluable asset. She's hardworking, an excellent communicator, incredibly reliable, and always punctual. These qualities make her the go-to person for delivering top-notch service to our cherished customers.


    One of the things Amber loves most about her job is the ever-changing scenery. Her office isn't confined to four walls; it's the beautiful homes and landscapes across Montrose and Telluride. She thrives on meeting new people, and she's especially fond of the adorable furry friends she encounters during her installations.


    While Amber didn't grow up in our service area, she's become an integral part of the Montrose community since she moved here a few years ago. Her dedication to our region and her passion for the outdoors make her a true local gem.


    Outside of work, Amber is an adventurous spirit. She enjoys the thrill of riding her dirt bike, shredding the slopes while snowboarding, and finding tranquility through camping and fishing. Her Hunter Douglas certification also reflects her commitment to excellence.
