    to include more contemporary designs I find the layering of the traditional with the more modern has a very fresh appeal How and why did you come up with the collection name I named the collection Harmony because my goal was to create a diverse collection with a strong sense of integration and balance Hodsoll McKenzie speaks to an elegant relaxed lifestyle and the collection works to underscore that ease through a harmonious selection of designs framed by the distinctive Hodsell McKenzie colour palette What can you tell us about how you design the fabrics I always start with the print designs I like to work from what we call documents which are antique textiles and then update them through colour print technique and ground cloth The embroideries are equally important because they are so decorative and they allow me to bridge the traditional and contemporary What were you looking for when selecting designs For me a good design has an even well placed layout with motifs that feel well drawn and sophisticated I also look for originality either in the character of the drawing construction or printing technique What is the process from initial selection to the finished collection I begin with an outline of a story By that I mean a lead decorative design that has a strong point of view I then work to finish the room which means I complete the story by considering all other fabric furnishings in the room If my lead decorative item is the drapery then I think about what I need to include for the sofa the accent chairs ottomans pillows etc The Hodsoll McKenzie customer should be able to complete a room with the fabric offerings in each collection book Once the designs have been selected then it is months

    environment and protecting the yacht s interior from UV damage More often than not this will mean fitting more than one window treatment in a recess is necessary Oceanair s multiple window treatments use one headrail with two or three blinds able to work independently from within this giving inherent versatility The most common uses for two or three window treatments in one recess are For use on larger windows making them easier to raise than one large single blind Separate blinds are lighter than one big blind meaning less pressure is put on the mechanisms and lifting cords Yachts or properties that require enhanced interior styling benefit from the installation of a range of products in the same recess For an interior designer to be able to incorporate layered window treatments with different fabrics colours volumes and textures whilst providing optimum light privacy and temperature control is a huge plus for any client Bay windows that consist of a large centre pane of glass framed on either side with additional windows Mounting a three on one blind here gives you the option of having two blinds closed and one raised or any preferred combination If you have a Venetian blind opening the slats of one versus the other is also an option The use of one headrail here eliminates concerns of the slats of each blind being at the same height from one blind to the next ensuring all the slats align with the blind next to it and gives a uniform appearance from both the inside and outside Oceanair offers a unique Universal Headrail which is platform stacking It includes a gearbox to house either a Lutron or Somfy motor for powered blinds For the first time this design enables installation of multiple window treatments within a narrow

    and design I joined Oceanair 10 years ago as the General Manager for the soft furnishings department which was in the process of being set up Since then I have found myself involved in many large and exciting projects from taking the lead in forming that department to creating new fabric collections Starting in February 2005 the soft furnishings department was making its first orders by May and we had a team of 6 by the end of the year In 2008 we were able to join the rest of the Oceanair team in Selsey where the company had its own purpose built premises This enabled me to communicate proficiently with other departments on a daily basis to find solutions for problems and to build upon what my department could offer After being promoted to Business Unit Manager in 2011 I have enabled the soft furnishings department to become self sufficient and enjoy helping it to continuously evolve An interesting project to have worked on was the creation of the leather Venetian range which we now produce for some of the most prestigious of clients from around the world There are many challenges to my role I maintain high standards by importing the correct equipment liaising with the technical team to source the right machinery for different applications and to source the perfect fabrics for the marine and residential environments My main challenge is to organise and prioritise projects we have made changes in our production process over the years to overcome this We now produce around 250 blinds a month completing a blind every 2 2 5 hours with each of the seamstresses taking a hands on role in the creation of every product I take a keen interest in every part of my work from keeping up to

    large areas of considerations that need to be taken when incorporating blinds into the design of a superyacht As we reach our final instalment in our series of posts Tom discusses below the choice of framing a blind to add the finishing touch Framing a blind It is well worth considering increasing pelmet height and factoring in to the design window recess side bars as these can be fantastic to frame a set of blinds and help increase blackout qualities as light bleed can be further reduced As shown in the pictures the blinds look neatly displayed framed within the interior of the superyacht This method can work especially well for Roman blinds but be careful not to impede the space in the window too much as it could cause the fabric to bunch However one point to note is that we would advise removing solid pelmets and side recess bars entirely when using a blackout Roller blind in side tracks combined with a faux Roman blind for a decorative pelmet in front of the roller Otherwise the decorative effect of the Roman blind could be lost If possible always plan in a mock up to the project to get a full feel of the light transmission levels and feel generated by the blinds This will help understand track spacing pelmet sizes and if the effect of the chosen blind combination is correct for your client If possible put the mock up directly on to the window of the yacht even if no other interior is present We hope you ve enjoyed this series of posts Please let us know your feedback Or contact Tom our Super Yacht Business Manager to discuss your project Tel 44 0 1243 606909 Email tomp at oceanair co uk Categories Blog posts Product news
