At Home With Interior's Influencer, Sophie
With over forty-three thousand Instagram followers, Sophie and her gorgeous home has made quite the impression. We take a look inside her living room where our shutters have made all the difference.
For Instagram interiors influencer Sophie, the bay window in the living room was a spot in her previous home she liked to highlight. Sitting directly in front of them was her upholstered armchair that is just the perfect fit for the spot; on the left, shelves that feature the family's book collection and stunning artwork. She had already adorned the windows with a stunning Jane Churchill Fabric blind that offered a gorgeous touch of colour, but she knew there was still room for more.
Sophie's Instagram account documented the renovations of number 18 before she moved to a 1920's home in 2020. The colourful accents, pink front door (always adorned with a seasonal wreath for the perfect finishing touch), and stunning details naturally attracted an audience full of people looking to recreate Sophie's gorgeous designs. And we don't blame them at all.
Shutters offered a continuation of the stunning aesthetic Sophie had already designed and effortless control over her privacy, often needed at the front of a property. With all of that in mind, she chose our café style shutters.
They're a much-loved choice and usually selected by those who desire to maximise the light streamed into their home as they leave the top half of the window uncovered. In Sophie's case, the café style meant that her beloved blinds could stay, creating a unique look that uniquely combines both the beauty and benefits of shutters and blinds.
Complimenting the surround, Sophie chose our Pristine White colour — a firm favourite due to how bright and pure it is, with hidden hinges (though she admits our range of hinge options did tempt her!) and 63mm louvres. The smaller louvre dimensions work perfectly for her size shutters. The choice of hidden hinges, along with our clearview control type, meant the shutters are elegantly minimalistic with a streamlined design.
Sophie candidly admits she was prepared for a bit of an anticlimax when they were fitted but followed by saying that she "genuinely didn't expect them to be even more amazing than I had imagined." The shutters more than enhanced the stunning bay window, and as Sophie puts it so kindly herself, "it finally feels like we've done our lovely old house justice!". We couldn't agree more. Us, biased? Not at all.
