We recently undertook two challenges and renovated our old nursery room and downstairs toilet which we are really happy with. However now every other part of our house looks like it could do with a revamp too. In particular, we need to update our Roman and Venetian blinds. These blinds were from Hillarys and they have lasted really well, but we had them installed when all our walls were magnolia from when we first moved in. Since then, we have renovated a number of our rooms and in truth, some of the blinds don’t match the decor of the rooms now.
I am very impressed with Hillarys’ service. They came to our house to measure all the windows and let us takes our time to carefully choose the designs. After two weeks, the same sales advisor came and installed it all. It was great that we only dealt with the one person throughout so that he didn’t need to reacquaint himself with our requirements.
Now I am looking for ideas to revamp the rest of the room’s blinds and Pinterest is brilliant for getting ideas. There are so many amazing home interior images to browse, re-pin and add to your board to reference them in future. If you have not joined Pinterest, why not give it a go! It is very simple to join. Do follow my Pinterest’s account if you get the chance.

These are the few ideas that I had pinned and they are simply gorgeous! I personally like Roman Blinds as they are easy to drawn up and clean.
First up is my daughter’s bedroom. I chose the Disney Princess Roman blind, Pink blind and Dora the Explorer blind. She is into Disney princesses and this blind looks perfect for her. She would be so pleased with it. The Pink blind will go well with any wall as it is bright and girly. As for the Dora the Explorer blind, it is one of my daughter’s favourite characters since we went to watch the Dora the Explorer live show recently.
My son is mad about superheroes. He has at least 10 superhero’s outfits like Batman, Spiderman, Power Rangers etc. I chose Spiderman and the Cars blind for him. This spiderman blind will definitely be my son’s favourite and I know he would really love to have that. He is mad into his cars from toy cars to karts to watching Formula 1 so I’m sure he would love the Cars blind too.
Next, I came across this multi coloured vertical blinds from Drapes-UK. They look fun, interesting and go well with homeware. I think this would be perfect for our conservatory.
If you need some inspiration, please take a look at my board and let me know if you have any feedback. Happy pinning and do enter Hillarys’s competition.
