Portobello V 'Laurel'

We have just received a new hanger from the Slender Morris library that I am very excited about. It is a gorgeous print collection named The Abbey Road Collection. There are four colour ranges and each colour has three designs. Portobello V is a lovely floral print in 100% linen, Sussex Stripe is a classic variegated stripe with a composition of 52% linen and 48% cotton and the Bray Flamestitch is also 100% linen. The range would be perfect for a combination of drapes, roman blinds, cushions and light upholstery. The colours are fresh, fun and contemporary whilst still being classical and timeless.

Look for this label when purchasing textiles for your home.

Ever wondered how to choose products for  your home that you know will not be harmful to your health. With so many imported products coming from manufacturers with little or no regulations on manufacturing process it is near impossible to know what is going in to an item destined to sit in your home. Fortunately when it comes to textiles and specifically for our industry for curtain and blind fabrics there is a label that you can look out for that can give you peace of mind when choosing window coverings. The Confidence in Textiles label shows that the fabric you are looking at has been tested for harmful chemicals and is safe for use in your home. Read more…

Sheers can be the perfect choice when looking for fabrics for curtaining. They are so right for our climate and lifestyle creating a lovely soft effect at the windows without making your home dark or blocking the view. A sheer curtain can suit so many different styles of decor from Classical to modern, pretty to minimal or coastal to country. Textured linen looks are very popular for contemporary but laid back living and embroidered voiles featuring leaf or floral designs look lovely with more traditional decor.

I’m so excited about the lovely new releases of Outdoor fabrics some of our suppliers at Custom Curtains and Shade are bringing out. In Australia we love to live outdoors and that means having furniture outside too. But during our excessive wet seasons things can start to go mouldy. Outdoor fabrics are designed to withstand the elements and can be Water Repellant, Yarn Dyed, which means less fading, and Antifungal. Combined with Outdoor Foam you can have cushions that can stay outside and be a breeze to maintain.

We have just had delivery of some exciting new hangers with new releases from Maurice Kain Fabrics. I love it when fabric companies provide lovely room shots so that we can see what the fabrics look like in a larger piece. If you have any enquiries about any of the products featured in our blog please email me.

Leonie’s lovely country style home in Conondale near Maleny is the perfect setting for our latest installation of curtains and pelmets. After many years of renovating Leonie and Rod were ready for the finishing touches in their home. Having used Custom Curtains and Shade around 13 years ago in their previous home at Witta Leonie asked us once again to fit out her home using fabrics to complement her colour scheme. Curtains were chosen as the best option for all the rooms in the house. To add a touch of intimacy and a little formality pelmets were used in the main living room in fabric from the Wilson Marlene range.
