Now Trending, Fashion-Forward Window Covering Designs by Budget Blinds®

Exclusive Styles Make an Appearance on Canada's Marc & Mandy TV Show

ORANGE, CA (PRWEB) May 18, 2016 - As windows become a main focal point in a consumer’s home, window coverings that include rich color combinations balancing warm and cool, textures, geometrical patterns and embellishments are taking center stage. Budget Blinds, an international custom window coverings franchise and a Home Franchise Concepts (HFC) brand, is proud to showcase the latest styles and trends for window coverings on Canada’s popular lifestyle TV show, the Marc & Mandy Show.

On hand with the show’s hosts, Marc and Mandy, was Tracy Christman, Vice-President of Vendor Alliance and Design Expert for Budget Blinds. In front of their live studio audience, Christman presented the latest in design trends, including Modern Geometry, with its bold patterns and shapes that create an eclectic feel and help to anchor the space. Christman said, “We are seeing artisanal patterns and geometric shapes clashing, but in a good way, with a very modern yet striking design that translates into eye-catching window shades that are perfect for any room in the home.”

According to Christman, black continues to trend well as a strong color preference and the addition of vintage-style embellishments adds a timeless quality. Global Artistry is a trend inspired by travel and adventure, blending together global patterns, fabrics and embroidery for a handcrafted, organic feel. Texture and shine are also taking center stage, with jewel-like accents that add glamour. A trend called Patina Luxe.

“These trends are very exciting for us,” added Christman, “and especially for me, as I love to take these styles and interpret them into gorgeous window coverings exclusive to Budget Blinds. My favorites are shades and drapery, which add depth and layering to a window for a complete, finished feel. And, it’s easy to coordinate matching pillows and rugs.”

Technology systems and solutions continue to trend well, especially motorization features for energy efficiency and child safety. “At Budget Blinds, our goal is to provide window covering solutions for every homeowner,” said Shirin Behzadi, CEO of Budget Blinds and its parent company, Home Franchise Concepts. “Combining trending, fashion-forward window coverings with motorization gives our consumers the sophisticated look they desire and the functionality they need to fully enjoy their home.”

Two-million viewers tune in to watch the Marc & Mandy Show on Saturday mornings, and the segment featuring Budget Blinds will air on May 21, 2016.
