Calling all interior design gurus

I’ve had some quotes on roman blinds for our living room. There are three windows – 2 smallish ones and a big one. The local Luxaflex agent quoted $890 with a rather boring range of fabric options. So I called Spotlight and their quote is just a bit lower and again, it depends on the choice of fabric. I think I will go to a Spotlight store (the people from Wollongong or Campbelltown will come out to me) and look at the range of fabrics. The lady from Spotlight said that romans are expensive. I already have Lincraft premade pleat curtains on the 2 sliding doors either side but I did want romans for the bay windows between the curtains. Should I consider a different type of blind? The premade blinds are all the wrong sizes otherwise I would just stick some bamboo ones up there. Seeing as I’m going to have to get some made anyway I may as well get it truly coordinated. What should I do? Stick with romans and just save up the cash, or switch to something else?

Job news – I got a reject letter from the radio station but that’s OK. It would have been too hard sorting out the childcare issues. Still waiting on the PCU.


  1. I agree with everyone – get the ones you really really want. You don’t want to be looking at them in two years wishing you had just waited a bit!
