Blinds are up.....

The light filtering fabric blocks out the sun, and still allows a lovely soft ambient glow so you don't need to turn the lights on in the middle of the day.

Dining Area (sorry about the cat scratcher!)

Media Room Block out Roman Blinds - Same fabric texture as other living areas, however opted for a Brown/Black colour which will work with my Birds Nest pendant light, it's called Espresso, yum!

Bedroom 2 - This and the bedroom below have the same fabric texture and colour as the living areas in a Block out version.

Bedroom 3

Laundry - same fabric as the living areas as you can see this blind from those areas.

What do you all think? I hope I haven't stuck too bland or plain. 

More Curtains and Romans being installed this afternoon, will pop up some more pics then.

Isn't it great..............

when you don't have to chase people.

On today's To Do list was to follow up the two curtains and blinds suppliers to get an ETA. Well before I could even boot up the laptop this morning I had it all sorted after getting calls from both suppliers to book installation this week!

The Luxaflex Blinds will be installed tomorrow and then the Curtains and Romans will be installed on Thursday afternoon, just in time for the weekend!

The only thing we won't have yet is the White Shutters for the Bathrooms, however they shouldn't be too far away.

So watch this space in the next few days for updates and photos of the finished products!

All rugged up....

It's getting quite chilly here at night and early mornings with no curtains or blinds so we popped out on the weekend and picked up this Rug to warm and brighten up the place.

It's actually quite deep in colour, the photos don't quite do it justice. The little bits of 'seaweed' (that's what I'm calling it) are raised and little Snickers (The brown cat on the lounge) loves pouncing on them.

It's a glorious day here today, sun is out and shining.

This is the house being built behind us. A guy turned up yesterday, on a Sunday, and started rendering all by himself. He did the whole LHS and half of the rear as you can see below.

They've just set up again, there are three of them today and they are hard at it again. Surely if there's three of them they'll be finished by lunchtime!

I did say that I'd do a post last week about the curtains and blinds however I've found it difficult to try and describe what I've ordered.

All I'll say is I've used two suppliers, one for some gorgeous Zepel and Warwick Fabrics for our Bedroom, the Guest room and the Office/Soon to be Nursery. I then opted for some Luxaflex Roller and Roman Blinds for the living areas and other spare bedrooms. The fabric I've chosen is a Light Filtering Sheer that is white and with an almost rice paper look that is a heavier texture. I also used Luxflex to put some White Shutters in the bathrooms.

I'm expecting a call this week about the Roller and Roman Blinds from Luxaflex to come and install, the others however are still all at least 2 weeks away.

Hope you all have a great week!
