Paul spent hours fixing my new roman blinds. We have a very wide, box bay window so there were four blinds to put up, with ceiling brackets just to make the job that bit trickier. Some Jehovah Witnesses arrived as he was perched on a ladder fighting with a screwdriver; they didn’t know anything about window dressing so he sent them away.
I had the curtains and blinds made to measure. In the end I’m so glad I didn’t try to make them myself, I struggled enough just pleating the curtains ready to hang.
I’m very pleased with the result. The colours are a bit understated - taupe and ecru, a bit like dead mouse. Billy Hammer, my Christmas moose, was the inspiration for my colour theme. I now need to add a bit of pizzazz to the room; I think I feel some animal print coming on.
