Meet Nohemi  and Karen

We are Nohemi & Karen, a mother /daughter duo working together to create beautiful and efficient window treatments and home decor. The story of Avanti Designs began many years ago, even before Karen was born as Nohemi opened up shop, selling window blinds and other window accessories, until she discovered her innate love for textiles and design. She then specialized in designing custom draperies and learned to understand the ever-changing demands of the market, designing some of the most elaborate and beautiful curtains and swags for all types of clients. Karen had it in her veins as well and decided to join the family business a couple of years ago. Their harmonious teamwork guarantees more than two decades of experience in design, as well as fresh and innovative ideas. They have worked hard to place Avanti as one of the most regarded Home Decor companies in the DFW area, working only with the best fabric and drapery hardware manufacturers in the world. Their goal has always been to provide a smooth and exciting designing process for all of their clients, with the intricate belief that every home is a haven, and the windows are the very heart and soul of every one of them.

Having an in-house workroom allows Avanti to provide clients with specialized attention to every design project and to offer these at a competitive rate, eliminating the need to hire a designer, who will then hire a workroom. This also gives us an appreciation and understanding for every material we use, and it is probably why we are so in love with the crafting process as much as the creative one. You can find us in our workroom creating everything from drapery panels, decorative pillows, roman shades, table runners, and throw blankets to custom furnishings and more.

Thank you for taking a peek into our little family corner, we look forward to working with you and take you along in our creative journey!







"Nohemi and Avanti Designs team are truly amazing! We recently moved to a new home, and wanted to install a 2-story window drapery/treatment for our living room. We are so blessed to have found Nohemi and her dream team. Nohemi surely is very talented and very professional; she listened to our requests, answered all of our questions/concerns, provided her professional and honest ideas/thought, followed up with each progress, and she surely is very patient. Her teams without doubt are amazing; they created such a wonderful master piece and on the day of installment, not only that they did it beautifully; yet, they also took care of my home, preventing any damages to the wood floor. I am all about clean home and I truly appreciate when people took off/wear cover on their shoes. Without doubt, the final result of the drapery is truly mesmerizing. I love how she incorporated our taste, our style, and make it into a real work of art. We got lots of compliment on it. Looking forward to work on more project with her for the rest of the home. Thank you Nohemi and Avanti Designs. team! We LOVE everything."

“We hired Avanti Designs-Nohemi  to help us with the elaboration of our draperies and window cushions. I have to admit that I was a little skeptical about ordering custom drapes, because of a negative experience with another company. Nohemi really takes pride in what she does, and her suggestions and ideas were just perfect. We greatly recommend her.. Excellent Service with Reasonable Prices."

 "Moved to the Dallas area from out of state into a  12 year old home with 20 foot high windows.  Found Avanti Design's website and many positive reviews so I contacted Nohemi to come out for an estimate on replacing the valances on the living area drapes.  This was the beginning of an extremely positive, pleasant experience.  Nohemi is very professional, knowledgeable, and delightful to work with.Her installation staff impressive.  They took great care in completing the task and did an outstanding job. I am VERY pleased with the finished product and the fact that the entire process took only a few weeks turn around time.  I could not be happier and will definitely call upon Avanti Design again when I need top notch window covering service."
