We all have visions of what our ideal homes would look like, I am sure I even have drawings somewhere of how I wanted each of my rooms to look when I first moved here. However, like everything our tastes change and I finally feel as though I am finding myself and my style.
Decorating is personal taste, whether you want paint or paper, shutters or blinds, carpet or wood floor. Choices are endless and I have finally realised that spending a little more time and money on home furnishings and decor makes so much sense in the long run. The pieces I have invested in are things I adore even years later, you have to look at these items day in day out so doesn’t it make sense to take time choosing something you will love!
One area I think is important is window dressings, people looking into your home see what you choose, its usually the first thing people notice when visiting and to be honest it is probably one of the largest surface areas in each room!
Couture Living provide luxury made to measure curtains and blinds which are handmade in the UK. All their curtains and blinds are made using quality, designer fabrics by skilled craftsmen. This is an online service where customers can insert their measurements and choose the fabric they like. Simple! (They are also running 12 days of Christmas offers starting with free samples so make sure to check them out every day.)
Once the curtains or blinds have been ordered and created, the customer is sent the product to install themselves with resources and advice to help them fit their new curtains or blinds. This in itself is a fabulous opportunity to gain a huge sense of achievement, this was something that I really enjoyed doing once I moved out on my own. A real sense of I Can Do This!
Couture Living also offer a measure, make and fit service which entails a team member coming to the customer’s home, measuring the window, making the curtains or blinds in their UK-based workshop and then returning to fit them. Customers can contact the Couture Living team for a quote for this service.
Couture Living is a new consumer brand, owned by contract furnishing company Robena, who have been producing made to measure soft furnishings for over 30 years within the luxury villa and hotel space.
Having decided to redecorate the kids playroom back into a guest bedroom I am excited to make a start on the window dressings and really want something that will work for the small space it is but make an impact.

For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
