Rachael Whatson

From an early age, Rachael had a passion for helping people, and a talent for design.

“As a child, I would constantly move furniture around and re-decorate my room. Mum would catch me moving furniture up and down the halls of our house as I swapped furniture with my sister, changing my room looking for a better layout!”

After 20 years of successfully building, renovating, and flipping homes and apartments on managed budgets and within tight timelines, people began to ask Rachael to renovate their homes as well. Rachael decided to qualify as an interior designer and founded Curtains, Blinds +design.

“I extensively renovated my first home in Collaroy. Every time my husband went away for work I’d knock down another wall to improve the layout. Once I had the taste for renovating I was hooked!”

Rachael’s now based in the historic town of Camden, and loves using her passion and design experience to deliver custom-made window solutions to the greater Sydney region, Lower Blue Mountains, Southern Highlands and beyond.

“I personally come to every client’s home to measure and quote. I just love heading up my dedicated and trusted team of high-quality suppliers, talented seamstresses, local manufactures and experienced installers, to deliver complete end-to-end window solutions. At the end of the day, it’s about making people happy, by creating beautiful, affordable, custom-made window treatments that bring their interiors to life.”

Sarah Barbrook

Sarah’s knowledge and experience really makes her a leader in the curtain making industry.

“From the age of five I can remember standing on a chair in my parent’s haberdashery shop to measure and cut rufflette heading tapes for our customers. And then my parents decided to specialise in just curtain making, so I’ve been totally immersed in this industry for all of my life!”

Like many UK travellers, it was a backpacking trip to Australia that prompted Sarah and her extended family to relocate from Wales to Sydney 22 years ago, bringing her expertise to the window treatment industry in Australia.

“I’ve now worked in the window treatment industry for over 35 years and I absolutely love it. I’m passionate about meeting people, connecting with people and helping them by offering different options and advice to help find the perfect curtains for their home.

“There’s such a sense of satisfaction and pride in seeing the final product hanging in our client’s homes and the smile it puts their faces…

…just like the smile I have coming to work every day, knowing our products and services can make such a huge difference to the look and livability of our client’s homes, as well as their overall quality of life.”
