Curtains that are to die for
Nothing finishes a room like a well-dressed window; without curtains or blinds of some sort, your room will have a distinctly incomplete feel and it would be a shame to miss such a great opportunity to make a statement and add colour.
The wealth of fabrics and linings available today means that you are spoilt for choice and having your curtains made especially for you means you will get exactly the right length and width for your window, as well as a handmade attention to detail that just cannot be found on mass produced, readymade curtains that you buy off the shelf.
I myself have a very large, very tall window in my home and after measuring it at a whopping 300cm x 250cm, I discovered that readymade curtains just did not go up to that size and a bespoke service would be the only option for me. That and I wanted a very specific golden colour to match my other soft furnishings. I'd found and fallen in love with a fabric a few weeks before but had not been able to source it myself. This is where Violet & George came in; I had heard from a friend that they had done an amazing job redesigning her study, and not only had they advised her on the right fabric or the size of her window and the style she was after, but the workmanship on the trimmings and stitching was second to none.
I arranged an appointment and on the day, was met by a plethora of stunning fabric swatches that matched the colour scheme I had previously discussed with them.
Due to the size of my window and the style of my existing décor, I was advised to go for a 'swags and tails with curtains disguising piers. This, I was told would help to break up the size of the window which was something that I was happy to do.
The finished product looks amazing and the craftsmanship of the seamstresses is unbelievable; I have never seen curtains that hang so well and the feel of the fabric between your fingers is pure luxury.
The days of me buying prepackaged curtains are long gone, no matter how big or small my window is and hearing the oohs and ahhs from visitors as they walk into the room is worth the extra cost
