    Well, fashionistas suggest Dynasty shoulder pads are making a comeback - lets hope that doesn't extend to home furnishings!

      Hi Louise,
      I thought I saw a new Austrian blind the other day so maybe they are making a comeback but if you look on the positive side they take a lot more fabric than a roman which means more profit on the sale of material

        Oh god.....save us from the frilly knickers. Used to do tons of these for the showhouses in the 80's. Yes they do take more fabric, but all that frilly nonsense and all the tapes and cord.
        No way.

          there's just no way you can hang them high enough so that you can still see the window!
          Kind regards

            I LOVED my Austrian Blinds in the 80's! I can't believe that I actually sat there and made them for two bedrooms and for my bathroom too! Now, did I have one on the landing????? My memory's atrocious these days.

            Didn't they just harbour the dust and the spiders? On the upside though, you didn't need to be half as accurate as you do with romans...... all of that gathering was terribly forgiving!
