The smell of sun cream, the sound of the ice cream van coming round the corner, the flap flap flap of sandals on a pavement, early mornings, late nights… There are many things that make us think of summer here at The Natural Curtain Company, not least our proximity to the Suffolk coast line which is abuzz with visitors, hikers and mariners through the holiday months!
More than anything though, when the sun comes out, we love seeing our customers’ curtains and blinds leave our workroom made up from one of our light, tumbled, natural linen fabrics from our vast range. There’s just something about the idea of a pair of linen curtains wafting gently in a summer breeze at an open French door that makes our hearts sing! From natural stone coloured “Monsoon“, to duck egg blue “Ocean” and Burmese style “Sami” stripe, there’s something for everyone. Our picks for summer would be neutral and versatile semi sheer voiles like “Messina” (off white) or “Arezzo” (natural) over blinds or left alone to filter sunlight and provide some privacy.
If time is of the essence, we also have a range of ready made curtains in 100% linen currently with a hefty 35% discount! Handmade the traditional way, these stunning linen curtains have a soft handle and a relaxed, tumbled style. The washed and softened, linen fabric combined with a plain lining allows the curtains to drape beautifully whilst gently letting light filter through. The pencil pleat heading is traditional and fuss-free. You can view our full range right here and the great news is that they’re delivered free in only 1-2 days. Our favourites for summer are “April” and “May“: delicate off-white shades that go with absolutely everything.
