Playing in the Sand at the AIA Sandcastle Competition

r June 4, 2013 | B Blinds.com Culture

Imagine a gathering of over 50 Houston-area architecture, design and engineering firms. Now imagine that this gathering takes place on the beach and that all of the firms are competing – for who can build the best sandcastle. It’s not your everyday business convention. Lucky for us this is a real event; the AIA Sandcastle Competition happens every year at East Beach in Galveston, TX. Rachel, the new Marketing & Social Media intern was fortunate enough to get an inside look at the competition and help build with the firm PDG Architects. She was so excited about her day at the beach that she wanted to share her experience with the Blinds.com community: I had no idea that sandcastle-construction could be so complex….

Do You Love Your Mama? Blinds.comers Do!

r May 10, 2013 | B Blinds.com Culture

  None of us would be where we are today without moms and mother figures in our lives. In honor of mother’s day, we asked our employees, “What did your mom teach you about decorating?” Here’s what they had to say:   What did your mom teach you about decorating? “My mom is a master home decorator.  I love the fact that her house never looks the same twice, it is in a constant state of change which keeps things interesting. Because of her, I now decorate like a crazy person for any season or holiday that tickles my fancy.  It’s fun shopping for little decorative items (especially after the fact on clearance sale!) to tuck into corners of rooms, to jazz…

You Have a Trusty New Friend – Blinds.com is a Google Trusted Store!

r February 16, 2013 | B Blinds.com Culture

Restaurants display health ratings in their front windows for all of their customers to see. Why shouldn’t websites do the same thing with ratings that matter online, like the customer service and shipping time? Well, they do now! Google has rolled out a new program called Google Trusted Stores. They display impartial ratings right on the homepage of sites they’ve deemed badge-worthy.  From then on, Google will offer purchase protection for orders from any Trusted Store if the customer opts in for this “service and shipping insurance” at checkout. If you run into any issues, Google promises to have your back. And now… we’re one of them! You can find our badge at Blinds.com to check in on our ratings at…
