Saw these gorgeous curtains today in Harrods in the furniture department, took me right back to being a child, I remember my Aunty having the same chocolate brown velvet curtains made, I think my Aunt's house inspired me into making curtains, she always had them hand made which was very extravagant in the 80's for an average family, I also remember seeing in her house the first austrian blind, I was amazed a bunch of cords would pull a piece of fabric into such an amazing shape! I promptly bough my first Rufflete Austrian blind Kit and made one out of an old sheet! That was when it all started.


  1. Its lovely to see things that trigger memories, whenever I see a volkswagon van it brings back memories of childhood holidays. Loving chocolate brown velvet curtains! Karen x
