    MADE TO MEASURE CURTAINS

    High quality, hand finished curtains made for you, in your choice of fabric and style for you to enjoy for years to come.

    With seven different heading styles to choose from, and the addition of a contrasting leading edge or trim we can create a unique look especially for you. Heading styles:


    triple pleat

    double pleat

    pencil pleat

    frill pelmet

    top inverted pleat

    goblet pleat

    cottage pleat


    Your curtains can be lined in traditional ivory or white lining or in a second complementary fabric. This works well for French doors or windows where curtains can be seen at ground level from outside. Blackout lining can be used in bedrooms or where no light is required. To add extra warmth and luxury we can also interline you curtains.

     

    MADE TO MEASURE ROMAN BLINDS

    Expertly made, our hand finished roman blinds are designed especially for you in your choice of fabrics. The option of adding a contrasting border to the bottom and or sides of the blind, or adding a trim to the bottom will create a unique look. We will help you every step of the way in choice of colour and textures if you need guidance.


    Choose to have you blind on a…


    Rotary chain track with a choice of chain colours. This is advisable for blinds that are more than one width of fabric wide as they pull the blind up more easily. This also complies with the child safety laws.


    Wooden baton, covered in the face fabric of the blind. This comes with a chord pull a cleat and acorn. This is suitable for smaller windows or windows where fitting a rotary track would be slightly more awkward.


    All blinds can be made unlined, or standard lined with ivory or white lining or blackout lining. They can also be interlined for added warmth and luxury.

     

    FAMILY RUGS

    New to us, from a company based in Spain, these beautiful washable rugs are absolutely perfect for the whole family home. Safe for new born babies due to the natural dyes, not toxic and 100% cotton, so incredibly soft. The range includes trendy rugs for teenagers, both of my boys age 12 have one in their rooms, and being just as messy as a toddler they are all machine washable at a maximum of 30 degrees which works for me as a busy mum.

    From geometric shapes to the continuing new trends there is a huge range of colours, shapes and designs suitable for the grown-up rooms too, making them perfect for modern life.

    Each rug is handmade by skilled crafts people in two factories in India. Each piece is unique, no two are alike. The brand prides itself on quality in every aspect of the production, from the finest raw materials to socially responsible labour practices. In return for their hard work schooling is provided for children in northern India.

    With the purchase of one of these rugs or accessories you are not only helping a child get an education, but also the opportunity to live a better life. This makes me proud to be a supplier of these beautiful rugs and accessories.

    A GUIDE TO CURTAINS & BLINDS

    Choosing window treatments is very much about creating a look rather than implementing a wholly practical solution. A greater choice of fabrics in every pattern and colour means that window dressings are as effective a part of the decorating scheme as ever, you can buy ready made curtains obviously, but that will limit your choice.

    As windows are an important focal point and a major source of light in a room it is important to get the proportions right. Let maximum light in through small windows by making sure curtains can be fully pulled back to expose all of the glass if space allows, or use blinds hung higher above the window frame.

    When planning a new look for a room always finish the decorating prior to hanging window dressings to avoid mess on fabrics. If you are fitting new flooring this may make a difference to the finish drop of full length curtains so have that in place first, as well as poles fitted in place before the final drop measurement is taken.

    Finishing touches can be added in the form of trims on window dressings, and tie backs. Boarders can be added to the fabric in contrasting colours which can also be used for cushions to create a flow of colour. Layering blinds and curtains achieves an elegant, simple look. Pelmets in contrasting fabrics can be fitted across the top of a window to conceal tracks.

    Magazines for the home provide a great source of ideas and inspiration for a new look. Keep cuttings of images you like as a guide.
