Sheer Love

Some of you may have been following along my curtain journey on Instagram. After being in my home for three years, we finally decided to add Sheers to our Void window and Kids Bedrooms with Curtain World.

The Void 

This window is over two-storeys, 5m long and looks out into our internal garden with a Japanese Maple. Recently, the neighbours cut down a couple of trees and we needed an option for privacy. This was the catalyst for finding a good solution for this window. I contacted Curtain World to see what they could do, they’ve been around for over 40 years in Perth so I figured they would have some ideas for me! They were also having a Winter sale and I’m all about saving a little cash!

The lovely Julie came out to quote for me – my brief was grey and sheer but still provide some privacy when the lights were on at night time. Julie showed me the thickest sheer she had in this lovely grey fabric – it was perfect! Another bonus was that she said we could do it without motorisation (which can be quite pricey $$).

I organised scaffolding so the installer could reach the height of the window. He was such a gun on the day making climbing up and down that scaffold and installing the Sheers look so easy. He knew what he was doing and did it with a smile which is always nice!

The results below really speak for themselves! I couldn’t be happier. It has added some warmth to the space, softened the harshness of the window frames and they are so light and easy to open/close. They create a real WOW factor in this entry space!

The Kids Rooms

When we built our house, we added blockout blinds to all the kids rooms but always wanted Sheers. The kids were three, two and 8 months old… this was why I didn’t install them straight away. There had been too many incidents in our household with textas, crayons, toilet cleaner… the list goes on. Fast forward three years and I finally feel like the kids are responsible enough to keep away from their curtains with harmful substances… let’s hope I’m not eating my words!

As Curtain World were already coming out to measure the Void window, I had them measure and quote on all the kids rooms. When I received the sale prices back, I had to go ahead and book them in!

I chose white sheers for the girls’ rooms and a light grey for my son’s room. See the results below – I feel like each room looks like a little boutique hotel room! They have definitely softened the rooms. It’s that final piece of the puzzle that makes the rooms complete.

The lowdown: 

  • Sensory Sheer
  • Colour – White (Girls Rooms) & Platinum (Boys Room)
  • S Wave on Silver Rail
  • Cost approx $800 each (Sale Price)

The Curtain World Winter Sale is on until the end of August if you’re keen to get some savings on your Curtains, Blinds or Shutters.

Thanks for tuning in! Until next time…

Luxurious Leederville Home 

Occasionally you come across some amazing homes in Perth and this is one of them! I have been lucky enough to watch the progress of this newly renovated Leederville home. Isn’t she a beauty? 

I love what the owners have done masterfully extending a beautiful traditional home with the most modern of extensions. Enter polished concrete floors and drool worthy kitchen…

The kitchen is pure perfection with the kind of storage space most of us only dream of and can we talk about the pitched ceiling and amazing window?! Nothing gets me like a good window flooding with natural light.

Check out the massive triple glazed door below and wait for it… self cleaning windows from Finland… (Why didn’t I think of this for my home?!) The whole home has a gas central heating system so the answer is no… the polished concrete doesn’t make the home cold. 

And if that wasn’t enough, check out this hotel style master bedroom and ensuite… those tiles!! 

I honestly can’t go past the family bathroom either, having visited this home recently it’s safe to say I spent an embarrassing amount of time in here… white, oak and grey – my favourite colour scheme wrapped up in one room. 

I really could go on and on about the attention to detail throughout this home but the best news for you is that you can check it out yourself! You can avoid the pain of renovating and building this yourself (believe me that’s a good 2 years of your life for a home of this quality) and become the lucky new owner of this home!

This Luxurious Leederville Home is up for Auction with Abel Property on Saturday 24 June 2017. I would definitely recommend getting along to one of the home opens to have a look and I’ve heard they hand out free coffee on auction day 😉 View the listing details here!
