These beautiful curtains and blinds were made for a lady who wanted to give her lounge afresh clean simple look, after many years of living with swags and tails and austrian blinds, so we picked a fabric with a light background and warm reds and terracotta's.
The fabric for the curtains and valance is a linen mix iliv fabric with embroidered flowers, giving a rich and elegant look to the curtains and pinch plated valance, the contrast fabric used for the roman blinds and details is from Pavilion .
As we wanted to keep things simple, we decided to have the blinds in a plain fabric, but wanted to tie it into the curtains etc, so what we decided on was to use the curtain fabric as a boarder on the bottom of the blinds, and in contrast the plain fabric used to cover buttons on the valance and the tiebacks.
We also tied this look in with the cushions by piping in the plain and making the front of the cushion cover in the main fabric and the back of the cushion cover in the plain fabric. Cushions are a great way to bring the curtains into the rest of the room an brighten and liven a boring sofa.
