Are you about to embark on a new design project? Or are you simply in the market to replace your tired old draperies, then remember this, curtains and blinds can offer just as much to the design of a room as the furniture itself. Window dressings can add a pop of bright colour to any room. It's like adding another layer of texture, you can use them to help tie a room together by choosing a fabrics with colours that feature in the rooms accessories like decorative pillows, vases, art or a gorgeous textured throw.
Blinds offer a more practical and functional option to curtains and use a fraction of the fabric, but the variety of styles and textiles available means they don't have to fall short on impact creating a simple, modern and streamlined look. They are great for small or high windows and windows above radiators, book cases or other bulky storage pieces.
Choosing the right kind can feel like a daunting task—there are so many colours, materials, patterns, and, of course, styles to sort through. You can view our complete collection of fabrics here. When you have found the perfect fabric for your project speak to a local curtain and blinds maker for the total number of meters required.
Roller shades remain an economical product because their mechanism and manufacture are inexpensive. However, prices may vary depending on the textiles and patterns chosen.

I was recently reminded of something we used to make at summer camp called Bannock, an easy bread recipe that can be made on a fire using the last embers in a frying pan or wrapped around a stick.

I love how modern yet rustic this tart looks, it's an impressive dessert for any occasion, delicious served warm with a dollop of vanilla ice cream and best of all it's really easy to make. You can replace the fruit and herbs with anything that's in season and voilà!
