I began making window treatments and home decorating items part time for friends and neighbors and my work quickly turned into a full time endeavor through referrals. Most of my clientele are concentrated in SE Michigan, however I have shipped my work across the country and internationally to many clients who have relocated. My work is innovative with a primary focus on quality and personal service and is done to meet the specific needs of my customers. I offer a wide variety of services including design consultation, fabric selection, cellular and roman shades, wood blinds and shutters as well as installation. I meet in peoples homes or place of business where I can help them bring the best out of their environment and convert unfinished walls and windows into a showcase. Whether you have a window, a wall, a room or a whole house, my creations will give you that warm and inviting feeling to come home to. If your windows could talk what would they say about you? I can make your windows sing. Hugs, Susan
