Norman SmartDrape and PerfectSheer Shades in Brighton, Tasmania

Catriona Rowntree warmly invites us to explore the charming town of Brighton, nestled just a short 20-minute drive from Hobart in the picturesque Tasmania. Homeowner, Loretta, graciously opens the doors of her home to guide us through a delightful tour, revealing how she has seamlessly integrated Norman’s SmartDrape and PerfectSheer into her elegant living and dining spaces.
“It’s stunning, you must be so proud of what you have created” – Catriona Rowntree
Stepping into Loretta’s home, we are greeted by expansive windows that light the open-plan dining and living area, offering panoramic views of the stunning Tasmanian landscape from every angle. Loretta’s priority was to ensure that these picturesque views remained unobstructed by window furnishings while still enjoying the benefits of privacy and light control. With a keen eye for design and functionality, she sought solutions that would seamlessly integrate into her home’s aesthetic while enhancing the overall ambience.
“Let the light filter through” – Loretta
As Loretta guides us into the kitchen, our eyes are drawn to a magnificent square-shaped window framing the breathtaking Tasmanian hills. Despite initially considering Roller Blinds for this space, Loretta ultimately opted for Norman’s PerfectSheer Shade.
“I wanted something that is versatile, I wanted something that … when it’s up it’s completely hidden” – Loretta
This decision proved to be a no-brainer, as the PerfectSheer shade offered unparalleled versatility, diffusing natural light throughout the day and seamlessly blocking it out with its motorised function when needed. A delightful bonus of this feature was Loretta’s ability to effortlessly enjoy the captivating views with the shade completely folding away at the press of a button, thus maximising the scenic views.
“I wanted something that … provided privacy as well as functionality that would let the light filter through and that’s exactly what the PerfectSheer Shade has done” – Loretta
Moving into the living area, we’re met with expansive glass sliding doors. Loretta, aiming to maximise the view yet retain privacy, opts for Norman’s SmartDrape. This choice perfectly complements the space, offering both functionality and versatility. She sought a solution that not only complemented the aesthetics of the room but also offered the flexibility to provide privacy when desired while remaining unobtrusive when pushed to the side. The SmartDrape emerges as the clear choice, effortlessly ticking all the boxes on Loretta’s list of requirements while its soft look harmonises effortlessly with the PerfectSheer in the kitchen.
“I love that the SmartDrape allows the breeze to flow through to the house and my dogs can come in and out as they please” – Loretta
By integrating the PerfectSheer and SmartDrape in the living area of Loretta’s home, the integrity of the breathtaking views enveloping this property remains intact. With Norman’s impeccable window treatments providing the final touches, Loretta has succeeded in crafting a home that seamlessly blends practicality, modernity, and tranquillity.
“The SmartDrape is wonderful because they’re all individual so if there is only one or two that need to be washed you can just remove them.” – Loretta
Through her thoughtful selection of these innovative solutions, Loretta has not only enhanced the aesthetic appeal of her living space but also ensured a serene ambience that perfectly complements the natural splendour of her surroundings.
