SHUT­TERS & WIN­DOWS

One of the most cov­eted win­dow treat­ments for a home is a clas­sic, tai­lored shut­ter. Well loved for its lin­ear aes­thetic, adding a cus­tom shut­ter to your win­dow serves more than one func­tion: slats can be ad­justed to let more or less light in, al­low­ing you to pro­tect your in­te­ri­ors, they pro­vide added se­cu­rity when shut, plus helps to in­su­late your home in colder months, while keep­ing cool air in dur­ing sum­mer.

CUR­TAINS

Fab­ric has the abil­ity to com­pletely trans­form a space. Utilise cur­tains in plush fab­rics to soften win­dow frames and add a warm, cosy feel to your in­te­ri­ors. In­cor­po­rate tiebacks for a more clas­sic, dec­o­ra­tive look, or opt for free-hang­ing cur­tains for a sleeker feel. Make use of print and colour in lux­u­ri­ous fab­rics to cre­ate a bold space or se­lect a neu­tral pal­ette for pared-down el­e­gance.

BLINDS

From wood to bam­boo, Vene­tian to roller, blinds of­fer count­less con­fig­u­ra­tions, fin­ishes and hues to suit your decor scheme, whether min­i­mal­ist, mod­ern or her­itage. Not only does it of­fer aes­thetic ap­peal, it’s a prac­ti­cal choice, too. Easy to ad­just ac­cord­ing to your needs, blinds can be kept shut for pri­vacy or to com­bat un­pleas­ant weather con­di­tions, or pulled up for max­i­mum light and un­ob­structed views.
