Portsea Residence

Date: December 2017

This large family home situated in Portsea had a neutral colour palate, a modern balance of minimalist design and natural materials, and plenty of natural light. However, hard surfaces called for some softness. The solution? Sheer linen curtains with a gentle drape to the floor that adds softness and filters light but keeps the space airy and open.

The centre-open sheer curtains also provided a functional option for sliding doors, an important feature that allows for a seamless transition between the indoor and outdoor spaces.

Each pair of curtains has a motorised roller blinds behind to ensure privacy and darkness when required, and aid in temperature control.

  • Sheer curtain – S fold heading, hand drawn, top fix white tracks. Combination of two fabrics:

    – James Dunlop Ona linen blend fabric, colour ‘Natural’

  • Rollers – Hunter Douglas Blackout roller blinds

  • Motors – Somfy remote motorisation

Sorrento Residence

Date: December 2017


The owners of this beautiful beachy home on the Mornington Peninsula were looking for a relaxed, easy feel – but with function to back it up.


Timber shutters were a beautiful but functional and hardwearing solution for the kids’ bedrooms and bathroom. They’re architectural but not too harsh and offer great light and temperature control in the summer.

Roller Blinds & Sheer Curtains

In the master bedroom, we installed roller blinds for privacy and light blocking.

Sheer curtains over the top provide some softness to the look, allowing for natural light and a peek of the garden while maintaining some privacy.

It’s a simple look, but high impact, allowing the architectural lines and natural wood finishes to shine while framing each window and the outlook over the lush gardens outside.

  • Shutters – Solid timber, 89mm blade, clear view control bar, colour White
