Project in Poole

November 2016

We travelled up to Poole (Dorset) for this lovely apartment, to work alongside Matt Hulme of Dynargh Design.  Led by Matt, we delivered a number of window treatments to three rooms – in the living and dining room, discreet DS tracks from Evans Textiles were ceiling fixed and single pleat, blackout curtains in a Clarke & Clarke fabric were installed.  We decided on a single pleat in this room to allow for maximum light when the curtains were open – this header is very forgiving and requires less fabric than other headers.  The master bedroom needed numerous dressings, which we chose with the designer during an on-site consultation early on in the process.  It was decided that blackout roman blinds, in a beautiful Colefax & Fowler fabric, would be installed internal of the window reveals as a practical solution.  But to soften the look and add a little drama, dressed double pleat curtains were draped on a chunky burnt oak Byron and Byron pole – the curtain fabric coordinated with the roman blinds, however we added a soft linen border in Romo fabric, which edged the sides of each curtain.  Finally the curtains were dressed back with over-sized Houles looped tie-backs.  The client had seen something similar in another property and wanted this to be recreated in her bedroom.  Finally, in the children’s bedroom, two blackout roman blinds were fitted external of the reveals in a bold and lovely tie-dye inspired Designers Guild, William Yeoward fabric.  We loved working with Dynargh Design on this apartment and really enjoyed the creative thought behind it.
