The thermal blinds received a lovely accolade today via the Sunday Times – see http://thetim.es/ThermalBlinds (firewalled) – it says;
It’s curtains for cold
“Heavy lined curtains are a tried and tested way to keep in heat, but there are more effective options. “A clever solution is thermal blinds,” says Julia Kendell, an interior designer and TV presenter (juliakendell.com). She recommends a new product by the designer Katy Duke. Her thermal blinds lock onto the frame with magnets and are made with materials used in skiwear. The panels, pictured above, are as effective as triple glazing, Duke says. Made to measure, and available in nine colours, the blinds start at £145 a sq metre, including fittings (thermalblind.co.uk).”
How lovely! I had a phone call a week or so ago but I didn’t expect such a great piece. Many thanks to Emma Wells & Julia.
