First trip to new Wembley

My first visit to the new Wembley stadium was a nice Christmas present from my eldest son Matt and his wife Emma.

 

To make it better, my team West Ham, managed to hold Matts’ team Spurs, to a 1-1 draw.  Having been to a few matches at the old stadium I think the old had the better atmosphere, but the new one is very impressive.  If you would like a quote, or some advice, on Blinds, fill out the form on this page and I will get back to you.

Last Golf Of The Year

It may have been in late December, but what a glorious day for my last round of golf for the year.  Looking back up the Exe from Dawlish Warren, past Starcross towards Exeter, where it looks a bit darker overhead.

New Years Eve Rugby

During my Xmas & New Year break I took in the New Years Eve Aviva Premiership  clash between league leaders Exeter Chiefs and Leicester, at Sandy Park.

I managed to get 2 quality seats, due to a friends illness and as you can see was sat just in front of England Coach Eddie Jones.

I’m sure he was impressed with The Chiefs as they beat The Tigers 30-6 and ended the year with a 10 point lead in the Championship.  Meanwhile it’s now back to work, so if you would like a quote, or just some advice on Blinds, fill out the form on this page and I will get back to you.

Cold Conservatory to Warm Living Space

When Jennie moved into her new home in Buckfastleigh she wanted to make more use of the conservatory at the property.  I fitted Perfect Fit 25mm Venetian Blinds to all the windows and Pleated Roof Blinds to the roof.

It’s now a cool place to sit in the summer and a warm and friendly living room for the winter.

Utility Room Transformed

A customer recently asked me if I could do anything to make there utility room more homely.  2 long Verticals along the outside and then the doors and window at each end were covered with Perfect Fit 25mm Venetians.

 

The result was to turn a cold looking annexe into a warm cosy extension.  If you would like some advice or a quote, fill out the form on this page and I will get back to you.

Perfect Fit & Romans transform new build

I’ve now fitted Blinds to several of the new builds on Torquay’s Primrose Hill.  Similar houses, but different types of Blinds depending on the customers desires.

 

The one pictured went for Roman Blinds in the lounge/dining/kitchen area with Perfect Fit Pleated Blinds to the 2 corner doored area. One in the lounge and one in the master bedroom.  The Romans add a classy touch to the windows while the Pleated Blinds are more practical on the doors.  If you would like a quote, or just some advice fill out the form on this page and I will get back to you.

 

Old Hotel to Family Home

An old Victorian hotel in Teignmouth was recently bought as a private residence.

As part of the make over Wooden Venetian Blinds were fitted to the many large windows.  As can be seen from the picture of one of the bays, they look really good and the customer was very happy with them.

Replacement Blinds Add Class to Room

20 years ago I fitted 2 large Vertical Blinds for Jayne & Tony and they were really nice.  But the fabric they chose to replace them recently, while decorating, has transformed the room completely.

 

This picture could easily have come from a glossy homes magazine.  They look so classy and Jayne & Tony were delighted.  If you would like to upgrade your decor and would like a quote, or just some advice, fill out the form on this page and I will get back to you.

Rugby’s my new Football

Having been a lifetime fan of football, with my Dad being a professional player, coach and manager,  these days I much prefer the oval ball.

The main reason can be summed up by the following statement – Football is where 11 men spend 90 minutes pretending to be hurt while Rugby is 15 men spending 80 minutes pretending not to be hurt.  So every other Saturday during the winter months you will find me and my partner at Sandy Park watching Exeter Chiefs.

Great entertainment and pasties to die for.  My partner’s not a sports fan, apart from rugby, so we both win.  Meanwhile if you would like a quote for Blinds fill out the form on this page and I will get back to you.

 

Beautiful Sunset Over Torbay

I recently fitted 8 Wooden Venetian Blinds to a 3rd floor apartment in Torquay.  Finishing at the end of an autumn afternoon I caught this stunning sunset over the Bay.

 

Some think Blinds may obscure a view, but I think in this case the Blind actually enhances the view.  If you would like a quote or some advice on Wooden Venetians fill out the form on this page and I will get back to you.
