Tip Top Blinds

Period Charm

This Melby Avenue home built by Campbell Bott was an Edwardian restoration with period charm. Architect Rifka Kinderman designed a modernised, stylish home that highlighted the beauty of its traditional design features.

As the home boasts many different shapes and sizes of windows, the Period Charm project required a wide array of blinds, curtains, and awnings. tiptop blinds offers a premium selection of window furnishing options to suit each space, offering the perfect product to match each room’s renovation.

In the family room, double roller blinds were installed in windows that lied above a built-in wall unit, offering versatile day-to-night privacy with a sleek, geometric look. Double curtains were hung on a west-facing window that required full sun protection, kissing the floor while creating a sense of luxury and movement. Behind the sofa and dining table, sheer curtains were paired with a blockout roller blind — a trendy, versatile look for contemporary spaces.

A bay window in the living area highlighted the Edwardian charm of the home. This space was elevated through sheer curtains hung on a black rod, drawn to the side to enhance the period charm with a contemporary feel, while honouring the traditional architecture.

The bedroom offered additional natural light through a skylight. As the bedroom faces south, it does not receive direct sun, but the space required blockout blinds for sleeping. tiptop blinds implemented a stylish, motorised skylight blind for full light blockout at the press of a button.

Bathrooms were fitted with shutters. Shutters are suitable behind freestanding baths as they are easy to clean and offer full privacy, while still offering a light and airy feel.

Across the home’s exterior, automated window awnings were installed to west-facing windows. This allowed for a view of the garden whilst creating sun-blocking protection.
