jill at jems design lafayette creats beautiful designer window treatments for your home

Your Home, Your Way

It’s not just a room. It’s not just a house. They’re not just windows. This is your home, which should work for you, along with reflecting your style and personality. This is where you relax after a long day. It’s where you watch your children grow up and make cherished memories. And it’s the place where you showcase your personal taste and sense of style as you gather with friends and family.

Creating an inviting space is a fun and exciting process, but with so many options and great ideas out there, you may feel a bit overwhelmed. Remember—this is an investment. You're getting more than just new blinds and shades, you're getting a quality service you can't get at the store. Jill from JEMS Design makes sure it’s just as invigorating and enjoyable as it is productive. If you're not happy, Jill's not happy!

Our Process

  1. Pre-appointment phone call – Before we get started, we like to have a preliminary phone conversation to get an idea of what you’re hoping to achieve with your new space. This way, we can come prepared with ideas and sample books. Being prepared!
  2. In-home shopping appointments – Instead of using a showroom, we make an appointment in your home, because, after all, your home is what we’re all about. This is where we come up with functional and stylish window treatment designs that work for you and your family.
  3. Come to a decision – Once we’ve had some time to discuss how you’d like your space, we’ll decide on products and materials you’d like to use in your new design.
  4. Measurement is done – When we agree on your gorgeous new design, we’ll take precise measurements so we can develop a price quote and order/fabricate materials. You’ll receive the quote after 2 days for your approval. If you aren’t satisfied with your quote—no problem! There are plenty of factors that go into this process, and we’re happy to work with you to get the best price/quality for your project.
  5. Full payment – With your full, upfront payment, your order will be on its way to fabrication, and we’ll schedule an installation appointment when they arrive.

From Pre-Appointment to Install

Your custom window treatments will take time to fabricate and deliver, whether from Graber or produced by Jill's local workroom. Depending on what products you purchase, it will take a different amount of time to finish and get to you.

  • 3-4 weeks for blinds and windows
  • 2 extra weeks for shutters
  • 6-8 weeks for custom-fabricated fabrics (depending on fabric availability) and soft furnishings like bed runners and pillows

Once all products have arrived, we’ll schedule an installation appointment at your convenience. At this point, we’ll go over warranty information and provide you with a care guide for keeping your new window treatments in tip-top shape.
