Carol Pendergrass | Drapery Designer

Carol PendergrassCarol Pendergrass knows all about the world of drapery design. After graduating from ECU with a bachelor’s degree in Housing and Management, she launched her design career, which included running her own blind, drapery and wallpaper business. Carol has also been an active Realtor for 14 years; she loves browsing house listings and finding interior design inspiration.

With 40 years of experience under her belt, Carol joined the Strickland’s Blinds team ready to use her creative skills in new ways every day. She says: “It’s the best place to buy window treatments – there are great products and helpful staff!”

In addition to her interior design jobs, Carol also reads and knits. On the weekends, Carol enjoys being with her husband, David, who’s been by her side for almost 30 years; her two kids, Maggie and Zack; and Zack’s wife, Emily.

Carol’s take on:

  • Blinds, Shades, and Shutters: You can’t go wrong with the traditional look and feel of Plantation Shutters— even better if they open to a view of water!
  • Home: Carol takes her inspiration from browsing house listings, and fully customizable closet-systems are popular for ease of access and keeping things nice and tidy.
  • Draperies and Fabrics: Custom draperies are a must-have for style and light control.
  • Custom Garages: Whether you’re a gearhead, hobbyist, party-host, or car enthusiast, Carol says her peers can help you design a garage to fit your specific needs.
