Had a wonderful weekend Hanging ‘Sophie’ semi sheer roller blinds in London!….Not all hard work though as after the job was done it was cocktails, great food and galleries!
My sister-in-law’s husband now lives and works in London during the week so we have been helping do up their new flat. We installed Sophie semi shear blinds to help with the privacy and light control in the flat. These were made to order in Scotland and very easy to install and they mix perfectly with our Plectrum feather grey curtains that were also made for the two rooms in the flat.
Sophie semi sheer blinds are such a versatile way to being privacy and light control into a room. They look better than just a plain sheer as the woven fabric brings texture into the interior. They also then coordinate well with the texture of curtains as you can see in the photos. The lovely soft grey & neutral palette in the walls, flooring, fabrics, blinds and sofa are perfect for a flat that needs to feel calm and homely and at the same time work well as a rental flat in the future – the neutral whites and greys then allows who-ever is staying in the flat to add their own personal touches.
I also really love calm interiors like this myself where the blinds, curtains and walls all flowing together, for me I find it minimalist and calming to live in. Next to be added we think are Flip lemon slice cushions in the sitting room and PomPom LemonSlice in the bedroom as cushions on the bed to add the pops of colour to each room. Once all the furniture and paintings are added that will also finish the look off perfectly for this sunny modern city flat. Looking forward to taking photos when it is finished but still added a few photos at this stage in case it helps with interior inspiration for your own homes!
Reasons for choosing this type of blind:
Their flat is on the ground floor and they were looking to have privacy in the front facing rooms while still letting in light during the day and security when they are not there.
The benefit of our sheer blinds is that they help adjust the light in your rooms as well as giving a level of privacy. Sheers are a great blind to add to any room in your home – Bathrooms, Bedroom, Children’s room, Dining room, Hallway, Home Office, Kitchen or Living room.
The main reason why we didn’t use just blinds was because you needed the combination of privacy while still having light coming into the rooms during the day, as well as blackout for when both rooms are used as the sitting room can be used as a second bedroom.
Our sheers come in a range of neutrals and greys with the designs called ‘Sophie’ in Snowdrop, Vanilla, Taupe, Natural, Denim& Charcoal or ‘Whisper’ in Charcoal, Ice, Olive and Vanilla. If you go to ‘Roller Shades’, click on ‘Sheer Shades’ drop down so you can then see Sophie & Whisper options. Both are a natural cotton looking woven texture that gives a soft matt appearance to your room.
Out and About in London.
Once the jobs were done we also had a wonderful walk over Tower Bridge enjoying the sunshine and along to the Shard for cocktails overlooking London – a must do treat!
On Sunday it was a gorgeous day so we took the boat from Tower Bridge to Bankside to meet my mum for lunch at the Tate Modern. It is a great perk joining the Tate as their members room is on level 5 overlooking St Paul’s so we had a great lunch there. We then went to see the x and x exhibitions. The x exhibition was very moving and tackled so many really hard experiences in her life and the world we live in.
The area were the Tate Modern is such a lovely part of London to walk around and every time I go I am amazed even though I grew up in London and have been so many times it never disappoints. You can see more photos in Natasha’s Monday blog post.
Late flight home after a really special weekend enjoying some long needed sunshine! The sunsets all the way home where stunning.
