Business of the Month: Blinds & Designs                       

Ed Lopez manages Blinds & Designs in the Cove Shopping Center, where our next mixer will be held on February 28.  Ed became an on-call consultant for Blinds & Designs 12 years ago,  and when the Tiburon store manager position became open two years ago, he was offered the job. He accepted, and the showroom now has six professional sales designers on its staff. 

Until about 10 years ago, Blinds & Designs sold only to residential customers. Since then, it has became involved with larger commercial jobs across the Bay Area, working with well known architects, interior designers, general contractors and realtors. "Home automation is the big trend now," Ed says. "It all started in the last ten years with high tech. We are motorized window covering specialists."                   

Blinds & Designs is the premier dealer for all Hunter Douglas custom window coverings, and it is Northern California's largest independent window coverings dealer. They specialize in custom window treatments for homeowners and commercial businesses throughout the San Francisco Bay Area. "We have expertise in every type of window treatment, and we will create custom solutions to solve even the most challenging window treatment application," Ed Lopez says.

What to Do on the Tiburon Peninsula

Tiburon's fascinating history and natural beauty also provide a variety of unique attractions. In Tiburon, the 1884 Tiburon Railroad-Ferry Depot Museum-the only dual-use railroad terminal to survive west of the Hudson River-is on the National Register of Historic Places. Old St. Hilary's, a Carpenter Gothic church set in the midst of a wildflower preserve, was built in 1888 and offers stunning views of the Bay and Golden Gate Bridge.

Ark Row, former houseboats on Tiburon Lagoon before it was filled in the 1940s, now houses restaurants and shops along upper Main Street. Tiburon Playhouse, site of the Tiburon International Film Festival, shows first-run domestic and foreign films.

And in Belvedere, the China Cabin is the restored Social Saloon of the SS China (1866), a national maritime monument with a gilded Victorian drawing room. Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society

Recreation

No time? No muscles? No matter. Tiburon Uplands Nature Preserve, a tiny preserve tucked into a shady canyon along Paradise Drive, offers a very easy, 0.7 mile loop trail that's perfect for a quick hike or a leisurely wildflower walk. This little-known gem wanders through a thick forest of California bay, climbs moderately through woods with coast live oak and toyon, then segues to grassland, crossing a seasonal creek en route.

Angel Island State Park

For a short course in California history, board the Angel Island-Tiburon Ferry for the 10-minute boat trip to Ayala Cove, entry to Angel Island State Park. From here the 740-acre mountain island encompasses the history of the Golden State from its Coast Miwok beginnings to the Army presence through the Civil War, World Wars I and II, and most recently, as a NIKE missile base. Immigration's pivotal role comes to life at the Immigration Station, where thousands of mostly Chinese immigrants were detained-and some denied entrance to the United States-during a period of exclusionary immigration laws. www.angelisland.org

Directions to the Tiburon Peninsula

After exiting Highway 101, take Tiburon Boulevard (Highway 131) east until you reach the tip of the peninsula. As you approach Main Street, the downtown hub, you'll find the Boardwalk Shopping Center on the right and Point Tiburon Plaza to the left. 

Park your car at one of the several lots downtown. Tiburon is a pleasantly walkable destination. For a helpful map, pick up a self-guided historical walking tour brochure (free) from the Belvedere-Tiburon Landmarks Society in the Donohue Building on Paradise Drive or visit the Tiburon Peninsula Chamber of Commerce office at 96B Main Street.
