A few weeks ago, I went to the Christmas Ideal Home Show in London. Thanks to Hillarys Blind for the invite. This is my first time being interviewed for TV. I was very nervous and laughed quite a lot in the clip. This is an impromptu questions as I was not send the questions a day before. They answers are quite random and messy. LOL! As I am from Singapore and it is not my culture to celebrate Christmas, so we have something else different in UK.
While I was there, Sarah Quilliam, the Head of Product Design, showed us around and their new products. I was participially impressed with their shutters. I have never considered having shutters at home but when I saw these, I was very impressed. They are so easy to open/close, clean, with no cords and made from beautifully crafted wood. We had our Vertical and Roman blinds installed by Hillarys Blinds nearly 6 years ago and they are still in great condition but cleaning them is hard.
They also introduce their brand new range, Country Retreat, a beautiful collection of country heritage with a contemporary twist: The Bird Parade (the picture on your left) , Wild Poppies etc.
I was quite surprised to hear that you can customise the colour of each individual Venetian blind. See the photo on the top right. The Venetian blinds come in two different shades.
Do check them out if you like to customise your blinds. They are a made to measure blinds company. Their representative will come to your house and show you the samples, take all the measurements and even install your blinds. They have over 850 designs to choose from. Their prices are reasonable.
Disclosure: I was compensated travel expenses to attend the event but was not asked to write this article.
