You might have heard the word hygge thrown about a lot recently. It’s something that inspired Gemma when she was updating her two-year-old daughter, Harriet’s room and the family kitchen. Take a look at the homely spaces.
“We live in a semi-detached home in a traditional Surrey market town,” says Gemma. “Our house was very old-fashioned when we moved in.
“I have been using Pinterest to gather some ideas about style. I like the hygge style – the Danish concept of simplicity, texture, warmth and cosiness.
“We are slowly updating all rooms in our house with this hygge style in mind. The kitchen was the big project as we knocked two smaller rooms into one – we have nearly completed the look now and are really enjoying living in the space.”
When it came to the windows, Gemma wanted to carry on the simple, clean lines of both of the rooms.
“I wanted some simple, high quality blinds for both my daughter’s nursery and our newly renovated kitchen. We like things to be simple with quirky finishing touches. I have previously ordered white blinds with a blackout fabric from Web-Blinds for my own bedroom and I knew I wanted the same thing for the nursery.
“The kitchen blinds, however, needed to be a bit different. I wanted an unusual pattern to match the new modern kitchen – but something subtle, luxurious and a material that would also let the light.
“Many other blind companies seemed to only offer Roller blinds with large flower prints – great for some rooms, but just not right for our kitchen. Web-Blinds had both a large selection of styles and great prices so I knew I could order with confidence.
“Roller blinds are cost effective and suit the simple style we were after. We can roll them right up to show off the large windows when we need to, and roll them right down for privacy or darkness (in the case of the nursery when we are trying to get our daughter to sleep!). They take up little space in the window recess too.
“The whole process was so easy. We found measuring the blinds easy and the blinds fit perfectly.”
