Room with a view

How gorgeous are these blinds for a children’s room, mamas?

REALLY cute!!

They’re by Luxaflex, a leading European brand of ‘window styling’ (love that, it’s like when homes magazines talk about ‘window treatments’. It usually involves lots of layering, draping and gathering. Which brings back memories of tricky school needlework classes and a particularly disastrous floral skirt).

But this couldn’t be simpler, or more effective – check out the clever use of one ‘statement blind’, above (get me! I’ll be all about the window treatment soon).

I think they’re lovely.

As are these, don’t you think? …

And in blue  …

But, even better, the company has really thought through the safety aspect, which, of course, is SUPER-important when it comes to blinds for nurseries and children’s spaces (this being National Child Safety Week, too).

Some Luxaflex styles come with a clever retractable cord lifting system, while others are completely cordless (you lift them by either pulling or pushing the bottom bar or, in the case of motorised blind, by using a remote control). All have a safety device for tying loose cords out of reach (more here).

Some commonsense precautions about blinds, generally (which are always worth repeating, however obvious they seem): avoid loose cords (cut them just short enough to be functional, if necessary) and keep furniture like chairs, tables and even bookshelves away from blinds, so little ones aren’t tempted to climb up and reach the cords.

If you’re shopping around for a blind, mamas, check out the full Luxaflex range here.
