They have an energy blind that is just so much more than a blind, It has an insulation effect up to 21%. That’s pretty impressive buy itself but it also has a light dimming effect to make an attractive alternative to a blackout blind. How useful would that be!.

In their blackout blinds range, VELUX blinds have 48 colour options and 3 modes of operation including solar. I love that idea!

I am loving this fabric for our landing as it’s neutral but still interesting

I like the textured white too. I’m not one for strong window dressings I like subtle, fresh colours that work well with any decor. I feel when you are looking for good value and making the most of your money neutrals are a sound investment. You can alter your room but keep your window dressings in place ( even up to 10 years!)
