tuiss :: in the press (February Edition)

We always love to see how other people use our blinds and curtains and what they say about us, so we like to keep an eager ear to the ground to find out where we’ve been featured in the press, whether it’d be in magazines, newspapers or on an industry blog.

Last month, we were ecstatic to find out we’d been showcased in none other than the February Issue ofYourHomeLogomagazine. Pretty cool, right?

We were part of their cover-story “50 Thrifty Revamps for under £50″, and we couldn’t be happier! We were nestled nicely amongst some big high-street names as well as well-respected online retailers and designers, such as John Lewis, Made.com, Scion, and House Of Fraser and absolutely love the set they designed around our Tea Rose Moss roller blind!

We love seeing our blinds and curtains gracing our customers’ homes, not just in national magazines, so if you want to show off your style, send us a good quality photo and a little description and we’ll post it for others to love just as much as you do.

Must-Visit Shows for 2015

il_570xN.688056873_q95w

New collections are pinging into our inbox from designer after designer, and sometimes we just don’t know how we’re possibly going to incorporate them into our homes. How do we know which are going to stick around? And which are just a passing phase? Which shades and patterns are actually going to be big next season?

Exhibitions and shows are the best place to find answers to these questions, inspiration and a good deal more. Plus they’re so much fun! (We do love collecting the freebies.)

And with the next batch of Home Improvement and Interior Design shows just around the corner, we’ve chosen 5 you cannot afford to miss from all over the UK. Continue reading

In a recent article, it was reported that the Duchess of Cambridge was “green with envy” when she visited Frederik VIII’s Palace during a visit in 2011, and later took interior design tips from Princess Mary for their own home- at Kensington Palace.

Frederik VIII’s Palace is home to some of the most impressive wall murals and artworks, since it’s renovation in 2010, completed by contemporary Danish artists, including Olafur Eliasson.

Murals are a great way to add substance to a room and often make great conversation starters for guests. Continue reading
