In the last couple of weeks I have been involved in 3 TV shows, providing shutters for 2 new ITV 60MM (60 Minute Makeover) and a show for Channel 4 which I will blog about later this week.
The designer for both 60 MM (60 Minute Makeover) shows I am working with is Richard Randall, and for the first show Richard chose shutters for the nursery in a house in Normanton. They were ideal for this room, as you can use the louvres to angle sunlight away from the baby or to darken the room when they need to sleep. I chose the blackout frame so that a blackout option could be added at a later date if required, with full height wooden panels in Pearl and 64mm louver blades. I have the same configuration in my own home in silk white with the blackout option, and it helps the children sleep even though it’s light outside when they go to bed during the spring and summer months.
I have just advised one of the 60MM team on how to measure the UPVC bay window we are working on for the second show, and the shutters are ordered ready to fit shortly. I will be blogging about that experience shortly.
Both shows are due to go live as part of the next series, if you keep an eye on my blog and site I will be posting the dates when I have them. The show has changed slightly as the designers themselves are now presenting, rather than have a professional presenter, but the format remains the same with the makeover completed in 1 hour. It’s chaos as there are so many people working in each room, but somehow it all gets done.
As always, its great fun to be part of the team and I will also be putting pictures of the finished makeover and shutters for ITV 60MM (60 Minute Makeover) in my showroom once the show has aired.
