The creation of a beautiful and calming tranquil environment…
My clients had recently moved into their new home, and our brief was to transform their Living room into a light and airy tranquil environment, allowing natural daylight to enhance their existing interiors, furniture, and accessories.
With the use of stunning statement metal curtain poles, we provided a classic contemporary presence, replacing the baronial, heavy wooden poles that were previously in place. These original poles were beautiful, however were not the required styling needed to create this amazing open ambiance. Limited fitting space from intricate traditional architrave detail was overcame by the use of alternative pole brackets that gave the ideal solution and strength needed to support the weight of the curtaining.
The curtaining needed to compliment existing furniture, scatter cushions and an intricate rug, which all had traditional features, with modern fresh twist. My clients selected a fabric with an exuberant Ikat print, which incorporated the multi coloured combinations needed and detail to compliment their existing furnishings, giving a subtle layering of texture to create the rich feel of an antique Ikat fabric.
Roman blind lining options were discussed and considered carefully, as my client had previously had blinds from another manufacturer that were lined and interlined. They felt these did not hang as neatly as their other blackout lined blinds, also from another manufacturer. I explained the use of a bonded twill lining would give more stability to the fabric and it also achieves a softer fold within the pleats. This perfectly accomplished the anxieties my client had felt previously. Blackout lining can be a little stiff and so the use of a bonded twill lining provides a softer appearance without compromising the look of their roman blinds.
Here are images of their completed transformed living room, in which my clients (and myself) are over the moon! My clients were very friendly and approachable, and a delight to work with!
