A Break From Colours

8 Jul

Don’t be afraid of colour especially in a north facing room – it will give warmth to the room and will bring your personality to life. Bright on bright is not easy to live with, but bright combined with dark earthy colours makes for a striking combination.

Introducing the odd piece of furniture that may well have been destined for the tip will add a touch of traditional styling, but be sure to have the furniture upholstered in a fabric that blends with the overall décor of the room and definitely do not over clutter the room to avoid the Victorian parlour look.

No-one would actually want to sit in this style of seating and as you will want your living room to be a welcoming and comfortable haven, be sure to include some seating that you can sink into for a read or relax.

Trimmings and tassels have made a come back so for a truly decadent finish be sure to include some kind of embellishment even if it’s just on a few of the cushions and be sure to have ample amounts of fabric in the curtains, perhaps even puddling them on the floor for a truly voluptuous finish.

Innovative 20th century style mirrors and glassware are still being reproduced relatively cheaply and are readily available in any good quality home furnishing shops.

Modern Contemporary – as long as the décor is minimal, light and airy, then almost anything goes. The key is creating a calm atmosphere where unnecessary accessories are avoided and clutter is kept out of sight in cupboards; not an easy décor to maintain with a young family.


Metal curtain poles are usually the name of the game in a modern décor and there is a myriad of choice from Poles and Blinds.com

Hasta Vision 28mm Genuine Stainless Steel curtain pole set.


The sculptural shapes of the wooden finials used as the detailing for this trendy curtain pole from the Hasta range will create an interesting illusion of space particularly when the curtain pole is used in a room with little other structural interest.

If the curtain pole is used with a neutral heavily textured curtain fabric, the tonal effect of the wood grain in the oak colouring for light naturals and the coffee colouring for deeper tonal fabrics will make a stimulating focal point to the window treatment.   The circular cut out feature of the finial unifies the circular detailing on the wall fixing bracket, harmonizing the overall of the curtain pole.

Curtain Pole Options

29 Mar


Need an EYELET CURTAIN POLE for your eyelet curtains?.

This is a curtain pole that does not have curtain rings as the eyelets in the curtains are the means of fixing the curtains to the pole, the metal pole should match the metal eyelet finish. Eyelet curtain headings, although very modern in style brings about a rather formal finish as the curtains fold back and forth across the pole.


The wall fixing brackets are adjustable to suit the size of the fold of the curtain and the finials are hand blown making for their own unique finish.

Need a  MODERN METAL CURTAIN POLE to set the pace for a contemporary window treatment?

The architectural styling of this stainless steel effect or spun brass curtain pole makes a stunning feature of your windows, at a very realistic price. The sharp graphic pattern created by the series of rings on the barrel curtain finial creates a bold modern statement. The circular design of the wall fixing brackets keeps the finish of the pole neat yet trendy, ideal even for the most contemporary of interior designs.

Rolls Neo Stud pole

Another stylish detail of the Rolls Neo Curtain Pole is the square cut nylon lined curtain rings, creating an air of sophistication by adding an extra design dimension, becoming a complimentary partner to the curtain pole finial.


Or traditional pinch pleat curtains dressed on a fabulous hand finished wooden curtain pole such as the Resina Advent Leaf & Berry pole?.

The tulip inspired curtain finial is richly adorned with carved detailing which looks particularly outstanding with the finishing touches picked out in silver or gold. The dark wood and gold finishes look stunning in an intimate dining room, or in an elegant yet formal lounge which is richly furnished in bold colours and elaborate curtain headings, deep triple pinch pleats linked with a matching bullion cord for example. The soft antique paint effects are perhaps more suitable for a romantic yet stylish bedroom with the curtain pole lavishly swathed in generous quantities of silks or taffeta, the curtains interlined perhaps with an attached goblet valance finished with a matching bullion fringe and left to hang loosely to the floor, maybe even leaving the curtains puddled onto the floor.

Are you overlooked and need a DOUBLE CURTAIN POLE or just an elegant effect for your bedroom windows?.

Are your windows overlooked or have an undesirable view – then perhaps they will require a double pole, the Integra Lexington Ball double curtain pole for example, will enable a pair of voile curtains to remain closed during the day with the main curtains only being used at night.


This curtain pole is also extendable making it extra easy to fit.

Do you have a bay window and need a BAY WINDOW CURTAIN POLE don’t panic!


We have a large range of curtain poles that can be bent by hand, fitted with corner joints to turn the bend or that can be bent at the factory to suit your particular angle.
