Why we love a London Blind

There are so many options when it comes to choosing blinds and window treatments. We always like to recommend Roman Blinds above most styles as they are simple, timeless and show a fabric or pattern to its best. Occasionally when working with a window or an interior scheme a bit of extra detailing on a blind is required to enhance the look and the best solution is to use a London Blind a.k.a  - A London shade.

Recently a client was finishing a really stunning bathroom in a period house and the window really lent itself to a London rather than Roman blind. This type of window treatment is highly decorative with it's inverted pleats and can look traditional in a period setting but with softer pleats and made in an understated Belgian linen the overall look is effortlessly timeless. This is where the curtain makers skill is really proven to produce an impeccable finish.  Here we used a stunning open weave linen from Mark Alexander fabrics.
