Handmade Trio Eyelet Curtains and Poles. Shouldam, Norfolk.

“Hello, I need your help for my lounge. I love Curtains my husband is not so keen. But I know I do not like blinds.”

The surprise was on this home visit the room had Three sets of Patio Doors. I found that the decor my customers was updating in this room was modern touches.

Choosing a colour to enhance the room was easy, my advise was to use a warm flat burning fabric to talk to the modern touches in this room. Curtain Style had to be Eyelets, I explained to my customer why we would head in this direction rather than having Pinch Pleat Curtains. It was a turning point and the design journey began.

Our fabric was Saxon Jaffa from Prestigious Textiles, with a 3-Pass Blackout Lining. In total these Three sets of Curtains would require me to Hand Press 96 Eyelets. My customer really liked the Gunmetal Eyelets and then we matched the Three Ball Curtain Poles in Black Nickel.

Installation day was upon us and well starting we had a wobble. It is tough we had three windows to replicate exactly. But we took a deep breath and started getting the Curtain Poles in place and then custom cut the poles to best compliment the window. First Curtain was up but we noticed the floor was uneven it was rolled away to the left-hand side of the room, this impacted us for the next window, but we soon found a solution and moved onto second window knowing the third window would then work.

Thank you, Helena, for making and installing three sets of lovely curtains. I would highly recommend your efficiency, helpful advice, and well-made curtains. Top marks**
