At Home with... Kristine

And her wonderful bathroom transformation.

26th August 2021

"I've always been slightly concerned that the quick DIY blind I cobbled together for the window was possibly giving the neighbours a crystal-clear view from their upstairs window," Kristine explains when talking about her downstairs bathroom. The moody design causes the intimate room to feel charmingly cosy, and the gallery wall brings charismatic personality into the space, but none of that matters when there is a lack of privacy to contest with.

"[The window] faces into the side return and our adjoining neighbours' house," Kristine writes, so this was a room that most certainly needed a suitable window covering and when the interior is as cohesive as Kristine's, the window covering deserved to match. Kristine possesses the most exquisite eye for design and has designed an astonishing bathroom, so anything additional needed to reflect her choices.

"Clement Browne [came] to the window treatment rescue with this lovely little pair of hardwood shutters," Kristine explains. We saw potential in this space, and Kristine eagerly shared our vision too, wishing to design something aesthetically pleasing and complementary to what she had already created, but offered her the assured privacy she so desperately needed in this room. That's where our wonderful colour matching service truly shines. 

At Clement Browne, we can match any paint colour in your home. We know colour is one of the most important aspects of your shutters, and our colour matching service allows us to offer you everything and anything. As Kristine explains, "they offer a range of standard colour options, or you can choose your own like I did here with Off Black by Farrow & Ball." Off-Black is a sublime colour from Farrow & Ball; it's dark, dramatic and statement and certainly leaves a lasting impression. With many of the accents of Kristine's bathroom featuring this sublime colour, it made perfect sense that the shutter matched.

As for the other design aspects of the shutter, alongside our Master of Product who guided her through all the possible options, Kristine also chose matching black hinges, the 63mm louvre size and a clearview control type. 

The final look is just wonderful. The shutter fits perfectly into this room, becoming a key piece of this interior and so much more than just a window covering. It offers Kristine the privacy she desperately craved and also control of the light, but it additionally presented her something that not only complimented her interior but enhanced it too. In fact, it provides the most perfect finishing touch to this bathroom, even if we do say so ourselves.
