Helen’s living rooms are the hub of the family home. Here’s how Helen made sure the two spaces flowed on in perfect harmony (even with busy family life).
Adjoined spaces can be tricky to decorate – it’s all about getting a flow without making the rooms feel like carbon copies of each other. Helen has it nailed in her period property.
“Our living rooms were in major need of a new look,” says Helen. “We wanted to make them into slightly separate spaces but to keep the coordination. We chose Farrow and Ball colours from the same colour spectrum, with a slightly darker shade for the lighter front room.
“In winter, we like to close the doors and have separate spaces, but in summer and when we have parties it’s nice to throw the doors open.
“The neutral colour palette means it’s easy for us to mix things up when we get bored with the mustard. We decided to choose neutral but textured Roman blinds to add interest to the windows.
“Our style is a blend of old and new – I can’t let go of my family heirloom piano, but I love modern art and interior design too.”
Helen’s friend tipped her off to Web-Blinds, encouraging her that measuring and fitting herself wouldn’t be as difficult as she thought.
“Fitting was very straightforward,” says Helen. “The instructions are really clear, particularly for the trickier bay window. My advice to anyone who is unsure is to read the instructions a couple of times and call up customer services if you’re struggling .They’re always happy to help.”
So there we have it – another happy customer. We love the way Helen’s created a duo of rooms that can feel like one sociable space, or two cosy rooms.
