Online curtains

Having bought a couple of Roman blinds online from 247 blinds I'm now looking for curtains to go with them.

247's curtains (ready made or made to measure) look a little dull (shame because the blinds are fine - order Saturday receive Tuesday - what's not to love?) so I'm looking for recommendations.

I searched mn but most of the posts were from nesting women, so a lot of extra info about nursery painting which I couldn't face.

If it helps the walls are dulux Cameo silk 4 and the blind is ivory. I'd like light coloured (small dark room) but I'd prefer pattern over plain.

Deathly silence. I can hear the echo of my dull question wrattling around mnhq..

I'm heading back over to the prenatal boards for more evesdropping on how to get curtains to match cot bumpers and what to pack into half a dozen hospital bags at 10 weeks just in case...

John Lewis, Laura Ashley, Pret A Vivre, Next etc do express curtains. Personally I would get fabric I really like and get them made to measure. All the brands, eg Harlequin, Romo, Designer's Guild, Jane Churchill etc will send you samples so you can see and feel what the fabric is like. Then find a local person to make them up, or the shop that stocks the fabric.

Dies anyone know if John Lewis and the likes will post me samples ? I can't see the fabrics online but maybe the full and not mobile site has more options....

Don't know if you're still looking, but much hunting of amazon found me our gorgeous leaf print living room curtains. And fraction of price of made to measure too. Dunelm mill has good selection too.
