Our Staff


BrendaMy name is Brenda Blais and I am the owner of Custom Blinds by Design. As an experienced professional and current student of Residential Interiors at the University of Alberta in Edmonton, I know what it takes to make your home look great and I thrive on improving my knowledge base and repertoire continually. I have always had a love for interior decorating and design.

Combined with my extensive experience in sales and marketing, my business is fueled by unrelenting passion. As a Hunter Douglas® provider, I know I can stand behind my top quality window coverings with confidence and pride. I work exclusively with Hunter Douglas® certified installers to guarantee that every job is finished to perfection.

Some of you may have known my company when it was called Custom Blinds by Lois, and when I took her business over in 2009, I knew I had a lot to live up to. With over 30 years experience and a solid reputation with a diverse client base, this business has been servicing the industry for a very long time. With my unique tastes and talents, Custom Blinds by Design continues to remain competitive and relevant in the home decor industry.

Our homes are places where memories take place, lives flourish and families grow up. Ensuring that your home is as beautiful as it can be with the highest quality of products available is my goal.

I look forward to working with you.

Warmly,
– Brenda
