Sneak Peak: Our New Honeycomb Product Photo Shoot!

As you’re all well aware, 3 Day Blinds loves window treatments. Nothing brings us more excitement in the office than when we are about to launch a new line of product. While we’re not fully ready to unveil our new line of Cellular/Honeycomb Shades just yet, we want to give you a glimpse behind the curtain, pun very much intended.

When we take photos at our studio we bring in a staging company who supplies the furniture for the photo shoots. For this particular shoot we used L3 Truc Interiors and we were able to get some great shots and are eager to unveil the new product line.

Room full of furniture, bags of bedding

With this many options it’s hard to choose!

The above photo is just some of the furniture that L3 Truc provided. Can you imagine our excitement? It was like having a mobile personal stylist come to our offices and say “What do you think of x, y, or z for this shot?” It was quite the experience.

Once we had the furniture in the office it was time to get the ball rolling. That meant we had to get to work transforming our in-office photo studio into a home that we could be proud of!

Daniel Raczkowski, pictured above, was with us for the photo shoot putting the rooms together. As we worked on transforming the room, it was inspiring and amazing to see the transformation that was taking place. Our office was becoming a home right before our eyes.

Our goal with this photo shoot was not only to take photos of our new Cellular/Honeycomb Shades, but we also wanted to open the door and let you into our world. One of the most fun moments of the day was deciding which decorative hardware we wanted to use with our drapery panels. Much like we would with anyone who scheduled their free in-home design consultations we had some options.

Melissa and Chris decide which decorative hardware to use.

Chris, our installer, and Melissa, from merchandising, had some decisions to make. They were going back and forth on which of our decorative hardware to use. It can be so hard when you love all of the options! We finally narrowed it down to the final two and were torn between a 1″ wrought iron rod in pewter (above) or a 1″ adjustable rod rung in brushed nickle (below).

After much debate, none of which was heated, we chose the adjustable rod as it really tied the room together (sometimes, it’s the little things).

We are so excited to see what you think of our new Cellular/Honeycomb shades and can’t wait for them to launch. Stay tuned for the announcement via our social media channels and in the meantime you can schedule your free in-home consultation to get ready, we promise, you’ll love the treatment!

3 Day Blinds Donates $40,000 in Product to Habitat for Humanity

Here at 3 Day Blinds not only do we love providing excellent customer service and great window treatments  we also love giving to excellent causes. Recently, we had an opportunity to donate $40,000 worth of product to Habitat for Humanity and more specifically the Habitat for Humanity ReStore program.

For those who might not be familiar with the ReStore program, they are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers that sell new and gently used furniture, appliances, home accessories, building materials and more to the public at a fraction of the retail price. Proceeds are used to build homes, community, and hope locally and around the world.

3 Day Blinds tries to work with non-profit organizations and community partners when we are able. We are so excited to be able to join in such a great cause and something that we feel resonated with us, because we are in the business of helping people turn their house into a home with our custom window treatments, that warm up any space. We are fortunate enough to be able to support the communities that have helped build our business over the last 37 years.

3 Day Blinds continually looks for opportunities to give to excellent organizations like Habitat for Humanity and we seek out those organizations whose passion matches our own. We look for partners who share our vision of being One Team and in doing so hope that we can have a lasting effect. 3 Day Blinds works hard to achieve this vision both inside and outside of the business.
