Blinds or curtains??

To be honest, I never believed in blinds. My cousin introduced me to Blinds in Dubai…. Here are a few pictures of my home… I think bedrooms tend to benefit from the use of blinds. Blinds are truly effective at blocking outside light. No matter when you need to sleep, drawing the blinds will instantly make the room dark enough for a good nap.
Saying that, you get black out, transparent and translucent blinds these days. I like light coming straight into my room… all day long!!
The décor in the space some times decides the choice between blinds or curtains. In my kids room, the old butterfly blinds or the new flower blinds just look perfect.
In my kitchen, blinds provide the airy feeling.
I simply love this print, in my mom & dads room. My quick pictures do not do much justice to it…. I am amazed by the different prints, patterns & colours blinds provide. In Dubai – Serial also make custom made blinds – print of your choice.
I think that older homes with high ceilings, are antique and period furniture would do much better with heavy drapers. I’m missing you all and your lovely blogs and inspirations posts. Time is not on my side these days, hence I haven’t checked your blogs. I’m going to be horribly busy till about the first week of August.. and only quick posts on blogger till then… I’ll check all the old posts of my favourite blogs soon… Soon !! I promise!…

  2. Not a big fan of the plastic blinds...however, they are a necessary evil in this part of the world. I hang drapes in front of them...that way I can just hide them away. But having said this.. how beautiful were the bamboo "chiks" back home??? the original blinds, and eco-friendly too! My mom still has those all over the house...nothing like them to beat the summer heat!

  5. Blinds are easy to clean up too, if the walls next to the plain blind are empty, you can think of painting a mural full length:-)I loved your blinds, all of them!

  11. What is also interesting that this is a problem where simple attention, exposure, got it to disappear. Where the old "power of the pen" becomes reaffirmed in the internet age.
