Designer Spotlight Series – Meet Kimberly Rost

At 3 Blind Mice, we’re thrilled to unveil our star-studded lineup of design geniuses! In this debut edition of our Designer Spotlight Series, get ready to be dazzled by none other than Kimberly Rost, the reigning queen of window coverings in the Visalia/Fresno area.

Kimberly Rost isn’t just your average designer—she’s a seasoned pro with over 15 years of experience, and her journey from scrubs to  swatches is a tale worth telling. 

Picture this: a former healthcare hero turned design dynamo, driven by an insatiable passion for artistic expression and home transformation. It’s like something straight out of a feel-good Hollywood flick!

Now, let’s peel back the curtain and dive into the mind of this design virtuoso with some probing questions:


What sparked your journey into the world of window covering design?

  • I embarked on my design journey over 15 years ago, shifting from a career in healthcare to pursue my passion for the arts and home improvement. Becoming a window treatment designer felt like a natural progression in my quest to become a total home design expert.

How do you craft custom designs that seamlessly blend with your clients’ spaces?”

  • Active listening is key to understanding my clients’ needs and analyzing the energy of their space. By offering personalized designs aligned with their aesthetic preferences and functional requirements, I ensure a perfect fit for their home.

What’s your favorite window covering trend at the moment? 

  • My favorite window covering trend is the use of natural materials like cotton, linen, wood, and woven grass. These organic elements not only add visual appeal but also contribute to a healing atmosphere within the home.

Balancing beauty and functionality—how do you do it?

  • Balancing aesthetics and functionality is effortless with the wide range of options available at 3 Blind Mice. Leveraging my skills and expertise, I seamlessly integrate beautiful window treatments that enhance both the appearance and utility of a space.

What’s your go-to palette for adding that wow factor?

  • I gravitate towards earth tones and natural materials such as wood, grasses, linen, and cotton. I enjoy creating contrast by pairing dark tones with lighter elements, and I’m not afraid to incorporate bold prints for a statement.  

Take us through your collaboration process—how do you bring dreams to life?

  • Collaboration is key to bringing my clients’ design visions to life. I encourage open communication, actively seeking input from clients about their preferences, inspirations, and desired level of boldness in the final design.

Keeping up with the design Joneses—how do you stay ahead of the curve?

  • I stay updated on industry trends and innovations through continued education, social media, and exploring art and architecture. By studying the works of renowned designers and architects, I draw inspiration to continually evolve my design approach.  

Any words of wisdom for those looking to spruce up their spaces?

  • When enhancing a home with custom window coverings, it’s essential to consider functionality, customization, brand reputation, and installation quality. Trust your instincts and work with professionals who prioritize your vision and provide exceptional service.

What is the sweetest reward of being a design maven?

  • The most rewarding aspect of being a window covering designer is witnessing the transformation of my clients’ spaces and the positive impact it has on their lives. By connecting them to their creativity and joy while fostering a harmonious energy in their homes, I fulfill my role not just as a designer but as a healer.
