About Us

Cathy Gustafson began her career as a window covering specialist while working as a designer at Bullock’s. In 1981, she noticed that window coverings were in high demand and prompted her to start her own business in Palm Desert, Blinds Etc. (previously Blinds R Us). Over 30 years later, Blinds Etc. has continued to expand throughout the desert, offering unbeatable prices and excellent customer service. Blinds Etc. offers  a variety of products including shutters, blinds, drapery, upholstery fabrics, bed spreads, cornice boxes and more with an extensive library of options.

Although it’s not advertised, Cathy offers her many years of design experience at no additional cost.


I love coordinating colors that will work with the whole color scheme of a home – my car is a rolling showroom of samples!
