Angelina’s Curtains & Blinds
What lies within this seemingly small industrial unit is a treasure trove of designer fabrics, frills and wallpapers, which with expert needlesmiths, become the most beautiful curtains, blinds and accessories.
I love a haberdashery, so was just a little excited to visit Angelina’s Curtains & Blinds -a family business run by three generations of women – mother (Angelina), daughters (Amy & Olivia) and 83 year old grandmother (Barbara) – all working seamlessly on residential and interior design accounts across North Norfolk, London and the Northern Home Counties.
Owner Angelina has been making curtains and blinds for over 30 years and is still very hands, on specialising in the more complicated orders but she’s the first to point out that she’s NOT an interior designer. However, if you’re looking for inspiration, I’d strongly recommend a chat with Angelina as both her passion and knowledge are extensive when it comes to fabric design, quality and practicality. She works with some fabulous suppliers including Sanderson, William Morris (check out the uplifted versions of their archive prints), Designers Guild, Matthew Williamson (Osborne & Little), Orla Kiely and Harlequin.
Curtains and blinds are a focal point and almost like (or instead of) a feature wall, can add warmth, depth and colour to a room. If you’re holidaying in North Norfolk you might come across some of Angelina’s work as she boasts Barefoot Retreats as one of her regular clients.
From start to finish this is high spec, bespoke craftmanship. From the free on site consultation service* and measuring to the personal hanging and fitting – Angelina and her team will deliver the finish and function you want for your home.
If you can’t stretch to made to measure but like the idea of some high spec finishing touches, pop in and peruse their custom made curtains, cushions, trimmings and tassles. I loved their textured wallpapers and roller blind printing – cool hey?
*(within the North Norfolk area and for further afield there’s a £60 refundable fee).
