This luxury new build in South London has been constructed to a high standard, creating an exceptional and substantial contemporary family home. The interior includes 7 bedrooms – mostly with en-suite bathrooms and dressing rooms – and all modern amenities including swimming pool, sauna, underground garage, cinema room, etc.
Waverley were approached by the contractor to put forward proposals and quote for all window furnishings. The specification included Lutron blinds and curtains integrated with home automation in the primary rooms and Silent Gliss manual blinds and tracks.
Requirements & Solutions
A project of this size with so many window furnishings involves a lot of detail and collaboration. Waverley worked closely over many months with the building contractor, their client and their interior designer, SGS Design of Tunbridge Wells. We appointed a dedicated project manager to run the project.
There were several meetings on site before anything was measured and manufactured to discuss fixing details, cable positions, curtain stacking configurations etc. Motorised tracks and blinds are powered by Lutron power drives, seamlessly integrated into the home automation system. Manual blinds and hand operated curtain tracks are from the superior Silent Gliss range.
The curtains are a mixture of unlined lightweight voiles and heavy blackout-lined fabrics, many of them with contrasting borders, piping and other features specified by the interior designers. All curtains have Wave heading. The fabrics were free-issued to Waverley and all curtains and roman blinds were hand-sewn in our own workroom. Roman blinds were completed with bespoke upholstered box pelmets.
One example of the detail is these headed curtains installed in one of the bedroom suites.
These curtains are headed in a toning fabric and highlighted with leather piping.
Other curtains are edged in a contrasting fabric. An example is shown below.
This was an interesting and detailed project, resulting in a comfortable well-furnished residence.
Waverley’s many years’ experience in the luxury residential shading market combined well with the design flair and expertise of the interior designers. The use of a restrained palette throughout has created a calm and sophisticated interior. Lutron automated curtains and blinds with near silent operation are the perfect solution for a modern luxury home.
