Our latest room re-do at the beautiful Maleny Manor has just been completed and I would love to share some photos with you. Marlene asked for something classical with a French Country look but with a little pop of colour. Together we chose a classical damask style fabric in Taupe with a co-ordinating plain from Charles Parsons as our starting point.  This was used for the coverlet, curtains, pelmet and cushions. To add some glamour and zing I chose a luscious velvet from Wilson Fabrics, Avida in Cornsilk, for the bed head and bed valance as well as more cushions and then the pop of colour was brought in with Ken Bimler’s Tudor Rose ‘Taupe’. For light filtering and privacy sheer curtains in Nettex Pulse ‘Champagne’ are also used. Here are the results I hope you love it as much as we do.



Avida Velvet from Wilson Fabrics adds a touch of glamour to the custom made bedhead.

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.
