My client had some ready made tab top curtains but wanted to smarten up her new house. The heading style was what she wanted to repeat, and we set about finding some fabric choices which would match her traditional, yet bright, sea coloured theme.
Blue ticking from Chatham Glyn seemed like the perfect answer, great quality at an affordable price, so we measured and created these fresh, breezy curtains!
The hunt began for some masculine, but timeless fabrics for my client’s son’s bedrooms. We settled on two absolute classics from Ian Mankin, who make beautiful woven fabrics in Lancashire, and made two blinds for each room, on wooden battens with the traditional cord and cleat system. All of the blinds were made with blackout interlining and blackout lining, so there were no irritating pin prick holes of light. We also made some matching cushions!
Entrance hall blinds
These two blinds will be rarely used, but they make such a difference to a clad entrance hall, which was previously cold and unwelcoming.
A lovely couple down in rural Kent were renovating their kitchen with a Grey/ green, modern look. The fabric chosen was a lightweight, soft green ticking which complimented the colours perfectly and provided shade from the sun, but without blocking too much light.
A fantastic renovation project in Battersea required various window treatments. Something fun for the bathroom in my client’s favourite colour was swiftly followed by two blackout blinds for an upstairs bedroom. The stripe colours are timeless! Due to the low level windows, we used a blind headrail which would allow compliance with British standards.
My client chose fabric from Fermoie, a bespoke fabric printer, based in the Wiltshire countryside. We made interlined curtains with a double pleat heading and blackout blinds for the sitting room and kitchen, and two bedrooms.
I absolutely adore this beautiful African themed fabric from Art of the Loom. I have it in my kitchen, and our February Competition winner chose it too!
For a total house renovation in SE1, my clients chose Ian Mankin fabrics to compliment the rooms they had already painted. As well as this, they chose a fabric from a newer range, which is mould resistant and washable with a bleach solution for the bathrooms. We also arranged shutters for this property, more photos to follow!
A pair of blackout blinds for my client’s little boy’s new room were needed, in time for the arrival of his little brother. We found two Ian Mankin fabrics which went perfectly with the wallpaper already in the room. By mounting the blind really close to the window frame, we were able to keep quite a bit of light out.
My client had chosen a fabric already and wanted their kitchen blinds made up, so the fabric was sourced from a local supplier and made into one blind on a wooden batten and two with chains for a busy kitchen.
Two new blinds were needed for a stylish kitchen in Clapham, and our client chose a classic check from Ian Mankin. We made the blinds up on wooden battens and fitted them to compliment the beautiful, original window architraves.
A re-design of a ground floor flat in Fulham required bedroom blinds for two room, one with a very exciting design aspect. The bay window was fitted with three matching blackout blinds in Romo fabric, all mounted with chain drives, and the second bedroom blind was a full length blind, which needed to cover a window above the door to the newly-extended ensuite. This was made up in a Romo fabric to compliment the wall colour, a soft but very stylish muted grey
Three blinds were made out of this great grey and yellow print. Perfect for a contemporary sitting room and kitchen/ dining room.
A beautiful fabric (possibly my favourite!) was chosen for this blackout bedroom blind.
