My favorite window treatment is one that compliments the customer's room and works best with the needs of the customer. My favorite style home is a classic colonial, but I do like a clean line transitional home that allows me to work with different products to compliment that look.

Meet Your Designer:
My favorite window treatment varies between roller shades, and roman shades paired with drapes. There is nothing I love more than the simplicity of roller shades. However, something about layering romans and drapes makes any room pop! My favorite style home is a modern farmhouse. However, I find each home to be beautiful in it's own way.
“I am lucky to be working alongside my parents. Since I was little, Budget Blinds has been such a big part of my life. To watch my parents business blossom into what it has become today is such a blessing. They are the hardest working, most kind hearted people you will ever meet. I couldn’t be more proud to work for them and with such a great team of individuals.”
