A 1980’s home with great bones, but lots of brown and beams; our brief was to create a home light and bright.

Working with our client, knowing their choice of colour for flooring, paint and kitchen surfaces, we were able to co-ordinate and deliver window treatments that were not only practical, but filled the home with light and space.

Living & Meals Area

Beyond both the living and meals area, sliding doors open up to an alfresco area that sees major household traffic. Here, a treatment that moved to the side, away from a constant sliding door was important to ensure clearance.

Our client wanted a soft approach for maximum light to fill the busy area. With a pergola to protect this side of the house, a simple sheer curtain created a sense of closure of a night time, especially during the winter.

With the tall cathedral ceilings, height again was important. The sheers were installed directly below the feature ceiling beams, creating an elongation to the final drop of the sheer. A black decorator track creates a hanging point, and compliments the black and white fleck of the fabric, also co-ordinating with the kitchen pendant lights.

This sheer provides wonderful filtered light, clear vision to the backyard whilst softens both rooms at the end of a busy day.


For all bedrooms, protection from the heat and cold was a priority as the glass was thin. Privacy was also important as the teenage bedrooms faced towards the street. It was also a request to create an element of elegance. Our solution: reverse pleated block-out lining on a cord drawn track, with a deep reverse pleated sheer, also on a cord drawn track in front of the lining.

The lining provides thermal protection and complete darkness for a restful sleep. The sheer on the separate track provides not only the privacy component during the day, but completes a soft, elegant and bright finish for the rooms.

Installing both tracks beneath the cornice, creates height to the room. Extending the tracks beyond the window left and right, ensures that when the lining is drawn back, maximum light spills into the room. The sheers too have the ability to draw away from the window to allow clearance for cleaning and ventilation when needed.

Master Bedroom

Second Bedroom


A simple, no fuss approach was required for this busy kitchen.

Cordless honeycomb blinds were the perfect solution for these windows, creating a clean slimline look. The translucent honeycomb provide filtered light, so that when the sun is low, the glare is reduced when working in the kitchen. They too provide thermal protection for the thin glass windows.
