For some people, it’s diamonds — for others, curtains are forever!
Good style never goes out of fashion — something I Design Decor’s owner, Janet Goldner, knows to be true. And for Janet, one thing you shouldn’t underestimate is the power of a good set of custom-made curtains.
Specialising in window treatments and soft furnishings for your home or workplace, Janet wants you to forget just throwing up any old thing for insulation and privacy — it’s time to look at the whole picture. “I studied Visual and Commercial Art and completed my apprenticeship in Hairdressing before advancing into Interior Decoration and finding my creative passion, giving me over 27 years’ experience in the industry.”
Janet is so passionate about how she can transform a space, that she’s poured her heart into dressing your windows to perfection. We’re not talking the premade ones that line the shelves of chain homeware stores and all look drearily the same. It’s time to look at curtains, blinds, shutters and awnings in a whole new light. Pull back your peepers to the kaleidoscope of textures, dimension and colour.
“Some people are afraid of colour or don’t know how to introduce it stylishly without overwhelming a space. Over the years, I’ve seen many homes decorated in all white or touches of black, and they’re missing something. A touch of texture and colour in your window dressings can make a room really pop and give it a cosier atmosphere,” Janet explains.
It’s not just colour or texture, but a sense of luxury that can be created with fabrics. “How many of us stay in a hotel and love the luxurious feeling but don’t know how to create that at home? Quality soft furnishings like curtains can give you that luxe feeling every day.”

And forget the days of tugging on drawstrings — or worse, putting potentially dirty hands on the fabric to welcome the daylight. There are now all sorts of fittings, including motorised or wire-free options to open and close your blinds and curtains — particularly helpful for older family members.
IN IT FOR THE LONG HAUL
Janet will make sure your creative vision will last for years to come. “We only use quality decor and design products, all backed by professional installation, so it’s a long-term investment in your space.” Word is that curtains are making a big comeback, so to get the best in the biz to help you transform your space — call Janet for a completely stressfree in-house consultation today.

Janet’s got plenty of ideas and can visualise what will work, but you won’t be pushed into something you don’t love. “It’s about thinking outside the box, but I want every client to love the result, so I make sure the suggestions complement their overall sense of style, not just cover a window. You just may not realise what’s available and what can look incredible — and that’s where I’ll take you on the journey”
