Why We Love Roald Dahl Fantabulous Fabrics

Tue 22 Mar 2016 Amy Kilvington

There’s been a brilliant customer response to our new Roald Dahl fabrics, and it’s not difficult to see why. The Fantabulous Fabrics collection, which is lovingly designed by market leaders Ashley Wilde, features images from much-loved tales, including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Twits, George’s Marvellous Medicine and Matilda. Showcasing some of Quentin Blake’s […]

Easter is on the way and Roman Blinds Direct is here this Craft a Noon to give you, not one, but three different activities; one for each day of Easter!

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! For today’s Craft a Noon, we at Roman Blinds Direct are showing you lucky, lucky people how to get creative, once again, with fabric. This time, we are giving you the chance to create lucky clover keyrings; these are spectacularly simple to make, and also look fantastic.

Craft a Noon: Fabric Bookmarks

Thu 3 Mar 2016 James Nuttall

Happy World Book Day! We’ve been getting creative here at Roman Blinds Direct, yet again, in honour of this special day. Thanks to our spectacular seamstresses being able to manufacture over 100 quality roman blinds and curtains every single day, we are always left with plenty of excess fabric, which would otherwise go to waste. […]

We’ve Been Making For Charity

Tue 1 Mar 2016 James Nuttall

We never pass up on an opportunity to help the less fortunate here at Roman Blinds Direct. We have made many donations to charity in the past to various good causes, doing our bit to help out in any way we can. However, this time around we are exceptionally proud of ourselves – or rather, […]

A Date Night In

Fri 12 Feb 2016 James Nuttall

  Whether you love or loathe the idea, ‘Date Nights’ have become the in-thing for couples everywhere,  and it would appear this is a movement that is here to stay. That being said, the ideology of couples venturing out to expensive restaurants, cinemas and bowling alleys for their dates is slowly appearing to be a […]

Sophisticated Spaces This Spring With Neutral Roman Blinds

Wed 10 Feb 2016 James Nuttall

It may only be February, but we’re well on the way to preparing for spring! A season filled with canary yellows and cornflower blues, cute stripes and pretty polka dots, springtime is synonymous with lively colours and lovely patterns. Reflecting the bright breeziness of the season, interior designers turn to pleasant prints that inject some […]

But now that your decor is looking first-rate, with help from our roman blinds or curtains, what will you do with the left over samples you ordered from us? Not only that, but what are you […]

Tickled Pink, this February

Wed 3 Feb 2016 James Nuttall

Last month, we proudly professed that we had the January Blues. We took that opportunity to educate you on the wonderful benefits of adding blue to your interior; that being said, January has finally come to an end, and we have turned our attention to a much more universally optimistic colour for February.

A case of the January blues

Mon 4 Jan 2016 James Nuttall

We have now reached what is, for many, the darkest month of the year – January. The joy of Christmas is but a memory once again, and there often seems to be little to look forward to; the days are still short, springtime is still a long way off, and as for summer holidays, they […]

Create your own fabric baubles

Tue 22 Dec 2015 James Nuttall

You may remember that we recently gave you the opportunity to win a set of four unique baubles, which were made from four fabrics from our Winter Collection. Congratulations to our winner, whose one of a kind prize was mailed to them last week. However, we at Roman Blinds Direct felt it wouldn’t be right, […]

Why we love Grey

Fri 11 Dec 2015 James Nuttall

In the middle of a freezing cold, windy winter, grey is getting a pretty bad reputation. It eternally seems to be seen as the colour of dullness, misery and general gloom. However, we at Roman Blinds Direct are here to try to change grey’s reputation into something more positive.

Introducing our minions!

Tue 1 Dec 2015 James Nuttall

Is there any better time than the Christmas period to give your child’s bedroom a makeover? Despicable Me has been one of the most successful movie franchises in the past decade, and you can’t move without seeing minion merchandise in every medium imaginable, from mouse mats to cuddly toys.

Thermal linings in time for winter

Tue 24 Nov 2015 James Nuttall

The temperature has taken a very definite drop in the past couple of weeks, and we at Roman Blinds Direct are definitely feeling the chill here at our 40,000 sq ft facility. It’s fairly safe to say that winter has definitely closed in on the British Isles, and we are all looking for ways to […]

Oh Suzi Q

Mon 16 Nov 2015 James Nuttall

We were honoured to organise the printing of two stage backdrops for the original Queen of Rock, Suzi Quatro, over the summer. The result was two enormous curtains, measuring 10ft x 12ft and 12ft x 20ft, which we actually had to inspect out in the car park, because they were too large to open up […]

A wintry collaboration

Fri 13 Nov 2015 James Nuttall

Roman Blinds Direct is proud to announce that we have launched our brand new Winter Collection. This features some of our most stylish and fabulous fabrics, which we handpicked with great care as we collated them for the collection. As you may or may not know, we have a Pinterest account, on which we pin […]

A little local thank you

Mon 2 Nov 2015 James Nuttall

We like to do our bit for charity here at Roman Blinds Direct. We recently ran a campaign on our site, and across our sister sites, in an effort to raise money for the Newcastle-based children’s charity, Tiny Lives. However, we also believe in helping out local causes, and our most recent donation went towards aiding […]
