When it comes to choosing curtains or blinds, it's a matter of colour and fabric, length and lining.
What shades of yellow do you offer, and which rooms would you use to make yellow curtains in?
Yellow is the colour which makes me think of flowers, lemons, and sunshine. It offers fresh appeal in each of its many variations. What could be more inviting than a bright yellow curtains in your living room? The colour of eternal summer, we can’t think of any shade we would rather come home to on a bleak winter’s day – or better, a warm spring evening.
Saffron, this beautiful strong shade of ochre yellow is fresh enough and strong enough to make beautiful yellow curtains and sit happily with darker shades of grey such as my winter, Charcoal and Scree and works particularity well in living rooms.
The following designs encompass these colours: Gypsy Garland, Origami, Shibori, Stockholm Stripe and Pretty Maids.
My softer Buttercup yellow, is the perfect partner for the gentler blue-grey Clay with added accents of Charcoal, this combination is very pretty in kitchens, bathrooms and bedrooms, exemplified in my designs Songbirds, Fruit Garden and French Ticking.
The counter balance between the warmth and cheerfulness of the yellow and the cool greys is perfect. The grey and yellow interiors create happiness and warmth and are spectacular in the evening when the sun is going down and the fire is lit.
Hay is my softest yellow, beautiful in an elegant sitting room or bedroom, see Fern and Dragonfly and coordinating Lapland Stripe.
Let's get started by selecting your fabric…
How to measure up for your curtains:
Please remember that pattern repeats and fabric widths are automatically calculated if you order through our web site. It is advisable to fit your pole or track before ordering your curtains. Your pole or track should ideally extend 30cms on each side of the window so when drawn back light is maximised and at least 15cms above the top of the window to block out as little light as possible again. Please use metric units only when measuring.
Width: If you have a pole, measure the distance between the finials. (A)
Finished Length for pencil pleat, triple pleat, double pleat and inverted pleat - when measuring the finished length using a curtain pole we recommend allowing between 2cms and 5cms above the eyelet on the underside of the curtain ring, depending on how much of the pole and rings you wish to hide. From the measurement you choose above the eyelet, measure down to the bottom of the hem (see B & C) and that is your finished length measurement.
Finished length for cottage pleat - these have to be made be a 3cm single position tape which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, please provide us with the distance from the eyelet to the floor and add 5cm for the cottage pleat.
Finished length for flop over frill - these curtains have to be made with a 3cm single position tape which makes the finished length non adjustable. To measure the finished length for this header, just give us the measurement from the eyelet to the floor. Don't add any extra for the frill, we will do that.
Please note, we will add 25cm for hem allowance.
Width - If you have a track, measure the total length of the track, including any overlap where the curtains meet in the middle.
Finished length: For pencil pleat, triple pleat, double pleat and inverted pleat - when measuring the finished length of your curtains using a track add 1cm above the track (to hide the track) down to the bottom of the hem. (D)*
Finished length: For cottage pleat curtains - these have to made with a one inch single position tape which makes the finished length non-adjustable. To get your finished length measurement, just give us the measurement from the eyelet to the floor and add 5cm for the cottage pleat.
Finished length for flop over frill curtains - these have to made with a one inch single position tape which makes the finished length non-adjustable. To get your finished length measurement, just give us the measurement from the eyelet to the floor and don't add any extra for the frill as we will do this.
Please note, we will add 30cms for hem allowance.
