Pinch pleat curtains in a grey linen with a voile and blackout blind was the best solution for this location. Sometimes 3 layers of window treatments are required to get a solution that works. To achieve this was tricky in this location, as there was only 12 cm of depth to get all these fixtures in. Pinch pleat curtains – which use the least amount of fabric and there create a ‘shallow’ curtain was the only solution here.
First a motorised blackout blind was installed against the window to minimise the impact of the street lights. Then a voile ‘blind’ was installed on top of this to provide much needed privacy during the day. A fully interlined and lined curtain was placed on top which not only softens the whole effect but also absorbs a lot of noise from the street below and minuses the draughts from the huge window.
We think that this end result of this central London master bedroom looks fantastic – the client was thrilled to also have a solution to a very problematic location.
