Help Required for living room interior design

My clients required a living room interior design and approached me, they are retired but have a really busy life with voluntary work. They needed new curtains for their living room. They weren’t going to update the rest of the room, so just needed something that would sit with their existing scheme. The windows were typical 1970’s build, extremely wide. The lounge window was also south facing. So the fabric will get sun damage really easily. My clients wanted something to bring the window up to date, the old curtains were certainly out of date and faded from the sun. Before photos. Selection. The fabric that I selected for them Voyage Cervino, had a light fresh background but had the warmth within the small fabric design detail of other colours. Which blended with their existing items perfectly. We also looked at the heading of the window. They wanted to have something of interest there as the window was so wide. So instead of the previous style of a soft valance, we changed the design to a fixed essex board pelmet. This gave crisp lines with a dropped end on the pelmet and we contrast piped the edge to enhance the shape. Because the window is south facing, I had selected a blackout curtain lining. This would protect the fabric and on hot days keep the temperature down in the room. Using one of my preferred contractors the windows were measured and the curtains we refitted using a Silent Gliss 3000 track. This ensures that the weighty curtains pull smoothly and with ease. After photos. I hope you have enjoyed hearing about one of my clients. As you now realise an Interior Designer can and will get involved in all size jobs. Not just complete property renovation.
