Kirsty, James and family moved into their new-build home two months ago. They were first attracted by the impeccable bedrooms in the showroom – and that’s exactly the feeling they ended up recreating in their daughter, Jade’s, bedroom.
Ditching the pink for a showroom look
Eldest daughter, Jade, wanted to shake off her pretty in pink bedroom she had in their previous family home, and go for something altogether more grown-up. And she knew exactly where to draw her inspiration!
“When Jade first saw the showroom,” explains Kirsty, “she ended up wanting an almost carbon copy of the bedroom before we’d even bought the house! The soft duck-egg room was a perfect match for her brief though – as a teenager at that awkward age, she wanted something that moved away from sickly pink.”
“I chose my bedding first and went from there,” explains Jade. “I loved the light blue detailing. I found my bedside lamps next, which matched almost perfectly.
“The designs were fun and a bit different”
“So when it came to picking my blind, I wanted it to be slightly darker to stop it all from looking too samey. I browsed with my parents online, and came across Web-Blinds. I liked that the designs were fun and a bit different.
“The striped design of the Coastal Stripes Roman blind looked nice, so we ordered a sample. It was good to be able to hold it up against the window, and to see how well it matched my bedding and other accessories. Luckily, it looked great.
“I like my lie-ins at the weekend, so I wanted a blackout blind. There’s nothing worse than waking up to bright sunlight! My dad measured up my window using the how-to guides on the site, and when we ordered, we ticked the box for a blackout lining.
“It was so easy to order online, and I couldn’t believe how quickly the blind came. Because it’s a made-to-measure product, I expected to be waiting ages, but it came in under a week which was amazing.
“The blind really draws everything together”
“When it came to fitting, my dad helped out again. I was more than happy to oversee from the comfort of my bed! It all went very smoothly, and I love the effect of it now it’s up. It really draws everything together, and it looks neat and tidy, which is important to me.
“You know you’re growing up when your mum doesn’t have to nag you to tidy your room anymore – I just want it to be clean for myself! Now it’s the space I always wanted at our old house – cool, and something that I’ll love for years to come.”
