Windows of Opportunity
Often overlooked, window coverings can be the easiest & most affordable way to make your home reflect your personal style…
Jamie Nunley’s mother and father recognized from an early age that their daughter exhibited a rather unusual talent for combining color and balance.
“Even as a young girl I used to enjoy rearranging and re-accessorizing my bedroom,” said Jamie. “For as long as I can remember, I guess I always knew that one day I would pursue a career in custom decorating and design.”
For over a decade Jamie has applied and refined her natural talents – first in the interior design field and for the last nine years in the window treatment marketplace as she pursued this area of specialization.
“Interior design encompasses an infinite number of skills, making it increasingly more challenging to excel in every facet of the trade, although Knoxville is blessed with several exceptional interior designers who have done just that,” said Jamie. “Today I am pleased to be meeting the needs of both individual homeowners and several very talented interior designers who rely on my window treatment expertise to complement their own.”
Recently, Jamie combined her passion and talents in the window treatment marketplace with Renewal by Andersen of Knoxville President, Bill Stone, to launch Cornerstone Home Enhancement Solutions, Knoxville’s newest destination for custom shutters, blinds, shades, awnings, and draperies.
“Cornerstone is a perfect addition to our premier line of quality replacement windows and doors,” said Bill. “While our doors and windows greatly enhance both the energy efficiency and appearance of your home, the addition of new window coverings by Cornerstone is one of the easiest and most affordable ways to makeover your entire home.”
Jamie has an extraordinary talent for working with homeowners. “I’ve always enjoyed listening,” she said. “Listening is the most important characteristic of a successful window fashion designer. The second most important characteristic is to remain mindful that your design should be a reflection of your client’s taste, personality, and style, and not your own. I love to help homeowners navigate window treatment and design projects, which can be an overwhelming and daunting task.
“When decorating a home, window treatments are often overlooked or the last thing to be considered. However, they are extremely important for a variety of reasons, including light control, energy efficiency, and making the room a more comfortable living space.
“But before I begin any project, I like to get to know my client. It’s important for them to feel comfortable with me and for us to agree on how best to proceed. It’s important to establish a budget that the client is comfortable with. In my experience as a designer, I have always been able to come in at – or in many instances under – budget. We’ve had to be creative at times and occasionally complete our project over several months, but it is important for each of my clients to be comfortable with the budget guidelines upon which we’ve agreed. This understanding helps us to successfully transition into the design stage.
“My personal objective is to help you articulate your goals, your personality, and your tastes which reveal your unique qualities and create that showroom quality appearance in your home that visitors admire.
“It’s difficult to describe the joy and sense of self-fulfillment I experience every time I complete a project with a client. I’ve been surprised at how often my relationship with a client turns into a long-term friendship – which is something that I think is a result of my being available to answer questions or help with any needs for service after the initial sale.”
