I’ve just finished some more blinds for this lovely home in Downend, Croyde.
This time we used a beautiful fabric from Voyage Decoration, using the Lorient Contemporary Range, in the Cornelia Valance Lemon colour way, whilst this is described as lemon, I would say it is lemony lime! I love it so much I may just have to use it in my own home!
Susie wanted to go with a ‘Camper Van’ style and this is where my suggestion of a Welsh Blanket Headboard came in, the fabric is 100% wool in St David’s Cross, woven in Wales, from Melin Tregwynt a lovely company to deal with.
We finished this project just before Christmas Eve, here are a few of the final images and Susie and I are rather pleased with the results!
Big thanks to Sarah Lambert who helped me with the photography!
We’re finally getting there with my office, when we moved down to Devon I was still working for Yell Ltd and they kindly set me up with equipment in my office, however, as we had the whole house to renovate, it was the last room we would be spending money on, so for 3 years I worked in a freezing cold, damp office that was totally uninspiring.
Nige then took over the office when I left Yell and added his
junk personal items to it, this was the last picture taken in it’s sorry state a few months ago.
The walls have been painted in Farrow & Ball, Pavilion Grey, the floor is in limed French Oak, I now just have to add the finishing touches!
I’ve been busy over the past few weeks, making blinds for a local holiday home that’s been preparing for the Summer season, more photos of this property later.
My client decided to freshen up the master bedroom, she wanted to use the lovely duck egg gingham from Laura Ashley for her blinds, so I advised her to paint one of the walls in duck egg to tie it all in together & then made four black out blinds to fit in the bay window
In the other bedroom we used Spotty from the Summer Breeze collection, from Clarke & Clarke, this also being a black out blind, has made a great difference to the sleep quality in this room.
I was very fortunate to work with Pickwell Manor, for my first commission, they have been transforming Pickwell over the past three years and had been working on the Bliss Apartment, from December to a very tight deadline to be ready for their first 2011 wedding in March.
I had eight rooms to complete with Roman Blinds & Curtains, within two months, I’m pleased to say I met their deadline and here are a few images of the work I did for them.
A big thank you to Susie, Steve, Tracy & Richard, for giving me the opportunity, at the start of my business, to set up a great showcase. I’m sure you’ll agree, Pickwell looks a wonderful place to stay or have your wedding.
