Curtains or Blinds
Having designed for big brands including Osborne & Little, Nina Campbell and Harlequin, Sarah Hardaker launched her own brand in 2006. Not only can some fabrics be custom coloured, but they can also print to the exact length of your curtains or blinds, making huge savings on pattern matching and wastage. This delightful design, Willowherb, is £54 a metre from sarahhardaker.co.uk.
Slightly earthy and not too stark, strangely named Hustle at 5pm is £39.50 for a 2.5l tin from firedearth.com. If its a bit too bold for you, a soft neutral off white would be just as nice.
This soft, draped viscose linen is not only reversible with a more neutral colour on the reverse, but also suitable for light upholstery or curtains. With an almost golden sheen it is £39.50 a metre from ianmankin.co.uk.
Also from Sarah Hardaker, this sweet un-uniform stripe would co-ordinate with so many fabrics and is £54 a metre from sarahhardaker.co.uk.
