Ann’s blinds were in a sorry state, falling down and resting on window handles, with broken mechanisms all over the place. In the first of two parts, we follow Ann as she perks up her interior with some brand new blinds from Web-Blinds.
In Ann’s master bedroom and en suite, she wanted to keep things restful but still add interest.
“I had a look on the Web-Blinds site,” says Ann, “and found lots designs I loved in crisp neutrals. They’re a great choice as I’m thinking of redecorating soon.
“I really love botanical prints, so I ordered a few samples. Bouquet Taupe was my favourite as it was a really modern, attractive design. And it matches my bedding as well!
Ann chose the stylish fabric for either end of her bedroom, at two dormer windows. She fitted the blind right to the top of the window, to allow her a little more light when the blinds are completely pulled up. And as she opted for blackout blinds, they help her get a good night’s sleep too.
It wasn’t just the bedroom windows that needed a revamp. Like the other blinds in her home, the Roman blind in the en suite was literally falling apart. Ann wanted something that would provide her with a little more privacy as the window itself isn’t frosted.
“I chose the Urban Grey Fauxwood slat,” says Ann. “It had an attractive grain which added interest, and it meant I could tilt the slat to control my privacy levels, rather than the all-or-nothing effect of a Roman blind.
A Fauxwood blind is also a clever choice for a bathroom, as unlike wood, it won’t warp in steamy conditions.
“I’m really pleated with the way it looks – it finishes off the room beautifully. And both spaces definitely prove that neutrals don’t have to be boring – it’s all about what you do with them!”
