Hot Off The Press: Wooden Wonders

August 29th, 2015 in All About Blinds

Can you believe it? It’s the end of August, and that means its the end of summer. Boo hoo.

But we’ll start thinking about that when the thermal lining starts taking over the sales reports though. For now, it’s back to the task in hand – the latest in our Hot Off The Press, and this time it’s all about the wooden blinds.

We’ve stepped inside the world of Colin and Jan Cadle, as they show off a lovely home in the August issue of SelfBuild & Design Magazine. The husband and wife pair from Torquay who both work in property, Colin focusing on renovating them, whilst Jan does the interior styling. And they’re both into photography too.


We admire this house as it feels incredibly homely, especially with those sea views! It’s not decorated to an acquired taste, but one that many of us are familiar with. It’s comfy, stylish and best of all, it’s a look that most of us would be able to recreate (if you haven’t already) off of the high-street.

The entire place has a coherent and streamlined approach, as well as being incredibly light and airy.


And of course, we don’t show you just any homes. Oh no, this one is pretty special. And why? Well it’s windows are only dressed top to bottom in our wonderful blinds, at least twelve of them in fact.

They’ve played it safe with one of our best-selling products, the Pure White and White wooden blind with tapes. From the lounge, to the hallway, office and even the bathroom.


Our favourite Hot Off The Press posts are the ones that feature real homes, where we get to know the owners and see how regular (not the super duper interior designers with expensive taste and a list of contacts longer than my arm) people decorate and make their house a home. Plus, who doesn’t love a good nosey around other’s homes? This one ticks all of the boxes.

You too can recreate this beautiful home with our fantastic range of wooden venetian blinds. Check them out today right here.
