Made to measure in a range of styles and finishes, did you know that I can now arrange for the professional measure and install of Plantation Shutters?

Shutters are a classic choice for home interiors, especially when dressed with curtains. Alternatively, on their own they are perfect for lovers of more minimal interior styles.

Shutters are durable and as they are more permanent than many window treatments they can be a good investment for your property. In the summer they will provide valuable shading and cooling properties while in the winter they will provide an extra layer of insulation. Whatever the time of year, shutters offer privacy and controllable light.

Shutters are available in a range of slat sizes, with a choice of painted and natural finishes. They will suit most windows and being made to measure, are the perfect choice for all windows, including unusual shapes such as arch windows, triangle/apex windows and circular windows.

Please get in touch if you would like more information or to arrange for a free estimate. You can contact me via the form on my website, email me at or telephone 07860 525787 Monday to Friday during office hours.

Is your Conservatory too hot in summer and too cold in winter? Are your furnishings fading?

I am now able to arrange the supply and installation of top quality, effective solar window film for you, almost anywhere in the UK. Solar control window film will help to repel heat in the summer, reduce fading and when you turn your heating on in winter it will help to retain the heat that you pay for. And it does all this without blocking any light or vision.

Heat Rejection (summer) - Up to 79%

UV Light Reduction (Fading) - Up to 98%

Glare Reduction - Up to 86%

Heat Retention (Winter) - up to 67%

10 year guarantee

The film is installed by a network of highly trained fitters and usually takes no more then one day to install (dependant upon the size of the building), causing the minimum of disruption.

In conservatories, window film can be more cost effective than blinds and more efficient at reducing temperatures. It is perfect if you prefer a minimalist look in your home and is virtually maintenance free.

A variety of window film options are available. Please get in touch for more details, to find out which film best suits your requirements and for a no obligation quotation.

You can turn your conservatory into a room that is comfortable to use all the year round.

Pom poms are a very popular choice right now and can be used to add an element of fun and whimsy to almost all of your soft furnishings.

They are available in a large variety of colours to contrast or coordinate with your fabrics and can be plain, alternating or rainbow coloured.

They can be added to cushions or sewn along the bottom of roman blinds. Use them along the leading edge of your curtains and dress them with a matching pom pom tassel tie back. Place them around the bottom of custom lampshades or even the hem of your skirt!

I love pom poms! Do you?

As you can see, the website is still in it's early stages of development. I have bigger and better plans for expanding it, but for now, I hope you have found all of the essentials!

I am building the site myself which is proving quite a time consuming challenge - I'd much rather be sewing! Please let me know if you encounter any problems with the site or have any constructive criticism. Comments can be made below.

I will be making regular blog posts about the projects I am working on, beautiful new fabrics, window dressing inspiration and lots more besides. In the meantime, if you'd like to see more of what I've been up to you can catch up with me on my new Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram pages. The links can be found under CONTACTS on the website.

The photo above is of some fabrics that have been delivered, all ready for my projects next week. Exciting!

Thanks for stopping by
