I was commissioned me to do all the window dressings for this four bedroom house at Cholsey Meadows. We started with the ground floor, paying particular attention to the huge bay window in the lounge. They were keen to have as much as possible of the window frame and original panelling showing when the curtains were open.
LOUNGE BAY WINDOW
The fabric is a Jane Churchill 'Banbury' in pink. The curtains were 5 widths each side with a cartridge heading, which although not seen as its behind the pelmet, gives a lovely even pleat. Curtain fitter Kieron Prendegast installed the ceiling fixed 'Evaglide' track and pelmet.
This is me dressing the curtains so that the folds are retained when the curtains are drawn and closed. It shows how long the drop is! I had to push hard to get these finished in time for Christmas
This is a lovely light hallway with windows on both sides. We wanted to retain a light and airy feel so this Sayuri 'Mimosa' fabric works really well.
This window was a challenge as It starts high up on the top of the stairwell and drops down into the entrance hall. We used the same Sayuri 'Mimosa' fabric as in the hallway.
The two roman blinds in the TV room were also made up in the Sayuri fabric but in the darker colour 'Pewter' which works well in creating a more cosy feel.
