Manuel Canovas Roman Blind

I love the floral medallion pattern of this Manuel Canovas fabric. It’s. a lovely shade of pink too!

The waterfall effect works really well with the pattern

Roman Blind & Curtains in Laura Ashley fabric

Apex CArtridge headed curtains

This bedroom has a beautiful view from the apex bedroom window which had been undressed for some years. The customer decided they wanted curtains but were worried about losing too much of the view. We therefore went for four curtains, rather than two, and I think it works really well.

The pale dusty pink washed linen gives a softer more informal effect…..with slight puddling on the floor adding interest.

The customer chose unusual bumble bee holdbacks in a dark bronze metal - a lovely touch of individuality 🐝

Henley Apartment

public.jpeg

This main bedroom was a recently completed project with Philippa of ‘Flippa Interiors’.

The clients apartment was a penthouse in Henley on Thames with amazing views over the river and town. We had motorised Silent Gliss Wave tracks for the curtains with hand drawn wave tracks for the sheers. I used Casamance fabrics for the bed throw & cushions - throw in Safflower & cushions are Bellagio violet. The bespoke oversized burgundy velvet headboard was made by David Admans at Catherine Charles

I’ll post more pics of the whole apartment shortly when Photographs of the whole apartment are taken

OXFORDSHIRE double pleat curtains

The Cross’s in Harcourt Hill Oxfordshire needed curtains for their newly built extension. With windows on two sides of the room there was plenty of light. They wanted to keep the window dressings light and airy…nothing too heavy and didn’t want the more structured look that adding blackout lining would have given.

We kept it simple with a double pinch pleat heading and white linings and only went to just past the sill as there was furniture beneath both windows.

We used a sleek gloss white Silent Gliss Metropole with wave heading to give beautifully uniformed pleats.

Cumbrian Curtains

Distance is no object!

This was a fabulous old schoolhouse perched on a hill overlooking an estuary

The ‘chapel room’ had been recently decorated and I was asked to add the curtains without loosing too much of the view

sadly my images don’t show the beautiful sea view

We finally tiled our kitchen!

IMG_0818.JPG

We moved into our house at Fairmile coming up for 6 years ago. It’s in a converted Victorian Asylum.... so very characterful. The developers hadn’t put any tiling behind the sink so it was always our intention to get round to it ourselves.

We didn’t want to spend a lot, as we still have lots of plans for future improvements, so believe it or not these tiles were real budget end!

They’re Lampas in peacock blue and they’re from Topps Tiles… Apparently they’re  the star tile for this year!  I suppose this could mean they are common, but I don’t care I really love them.

we did a random pattern mix of plain & patterned for added interest & texture

They also compliment perfectly the Farrow & Ball ‘Vardo’ painted walls.

Simple Linen Romans

This is just one of four Roman Blinds for a customer in Ascot. The side return detail hides the cartridge system and gives the blind a more bespoke finish.

Cloakroom Romans in Fairmile

The two windows in this cloakroom are high up and look out onto a private courtyard, so although they didn’t need the privacy, the addition of roman blinds makes the room feel more cosy and adds interest.

the fabric is a Sofa Workshop Dexter’s Linen in Hazelnut @ £39pm. It’s got a great texture and lovely warm colour
