Just before Christmas our neighbours decorated throughout and had their windows replaced. They then added venetion blinds. They love the minimalist look and the windows look lovely. Soon after, neighbours across the road added venetion blinds! Today another set of our neighbours are having new windows, the same as next door. Fitted by the same company! I thought all this envy stopped when you reached a certain age. Obviously not. Our next door neighbours could be flattered or miffed.
Never drive faster than your guardian angel can fly.

We visited our son and his wife last weekend in their new home near Washington DC. I noticed virtually every house on their road had Venetian blinds! Are they on trend again? Funny how your neighbours are copying Trisha, they obviously like the look but will they like the dust? My mum had them back in the 60s and I remember her complaining that they were difficult to dust properly!
These are plantation blinds Trisha,they are all wood and you pull a fixed rod to open and close the wood slats, they look fabulous in tall bay windows as they come in a top and bottom half for those kind of windows. I love the way they draw back like the old fashioned kind of Georgian shutters.
