Testimonials

“Christine and her team were a delight to work with. The whole process from the choice of drape, through fabric and finishings their advice was always given with our wishes and needs at the forefront of all discussions. Questions always answered with honesty, and advice given without condescension.

I cannot fault the workmanship or the timely delivery of the project. All those who visited our home were respectful and the only trace of them having been present were the beautiful blinds and curtains they left behind.

Cannot recommend them highly enough.”

“The curtains are beautifully made and hang really well. Christine and her team really listened to what I wanted and worked hard to get things just right, especially with a bespoke pelmet shape we designed in situ for a very tricky window. Her fitting team were great tweaking my plans when they needed.”

“If a friend asks me if I could recommend someone for soft furnishings, I always send them to Christine Atkins and her team at ‘No Naked Windows’. Christine not only has great taste and an extensive selection of fabrics and sample books to be inspired by – she is also someone who listens to you and appreciates your own style and will then find the best solution. I always felt that the process of developing a product was a very pleasant one. Christine has a lot of experience and expertise and is always able to show you different options. No Naked Windows has helped us find the right fabrics for curtains, cushions and re-upholstery of walls, and for so many completely different projects. Thanks to Christine’s great sense of colour, material, pattern and texture, we got the right items for each of the very different houses. Christine and her team are professional throughout the whole process. Their attention to detail is exceptional and it is always a great pleasure to work with this reliable team.”

“Christine and Team were brilliant from start to finish. We needed some help choosing fabric and working out what would work best in some quite big and difficult spaces and she was patient as we worked it all out. We love our curtains – they look great and work perfectly.”

“I have worked with No Naked Windows for 6 years and I could not speak highly enough of Christine and her talented team. Every single project I have worked on with her has been extremely professionally handled and her finished work is of the absolute highest calibre. Christine has incredible attention to detail and is also extremely good at coming up with solutions in challenging situations. She has a fantastic team and can provide extra support with her contacts including ironmongery and installation. I wholeheartedly recommend No Naked Windows, a fantastic company who I thoroughly enjoy working with.”

David Ellis

Gallery Manager, Hauser & Wirth Somerset

“I have known Christine for a number of years and we have used her services on many occasions. Not only is she a delightful person, with her sunny and creative disposition, but she is also extremely easy to work with and has often helped me in the final decision-making process. On every occasion she has proved to be punctual and reliable as well as being good value for money. What has also pleased me is that she has accommodated the fact that I have wanted to re-use existing fabrics from previous curtains. She is extremely versatile, summed up by the fact that she is able to make everything from cushions to bedspreads, headboards to blinds and curtains. What is even better is that along with her fitters, who fit the poles tracks and other hardware, they are able to provide a full service from within two miles of our house. It is nice to be supporting our local business in Bruton. I cannot recommend her highly enough.”

“Christine at No Naked Windows is a soft furnishings tour de force. Attentive to detail and diligent in execution she gives her time generously to all her customers and delivers her expert advice with great humour. Christine really listens and tunes in to personal preferences and tastes but is happy to guide if you’re hesitating or unsure. The linen curtains she has made for us are absolutely lovely, the blinds she has supplied have been great. I always love visiting the shop in Bruton for a chat and to seek inspiration from her stock of well-chosen fabric samples.”

“The team at No Naked Windows are very approachable and friendly. It’s like doing business with friends. My contact with them was entirely professional and they ‘got’ the look I wanted, offering appropriate suggestions and ideas.

My dealings with them were professional and efficient. Delivery time was surprisingly quick and the payment method easy. I feel their prices are right, fair and reflect the high standard of service I received and the curtains and blinds they made for me.”

Caroline Dowdell

“Christine has made 3 sets of Roman blinds, and upholstered various chairs and pieces of furniture. I’m so pleased with her previous work that she is now going to make another 4 sets of blinds and one set of curtains.

Her work is of a very high standard, she’s professional, delivers on time and is brilliantly patient.”

“I’ve used No Naked Windows for all the upholstery, blinds and curtains in my restaurant for over seven years now. Top service and great work.”

Matt Watson

Matt’s Kitchen

“When we moved into our new home, we needed new curtains and Roman and wooden blinds. Some were made from scratch with new fabric and others were remade from curtains and blinds from our old home as we wanted to reuse the fabric. She did an excellent job of using the old material, ensuring that the pattern worked and making them look like new.

Christine was brilliant to work with, prompt to quote and good at delivering when she said she would. She sorted out a problem very quickly and managed to fit our final blinds just before Christmas. All in all, she made 11 sets of curtains and blinds for us. We’re really happy with the service that Christine provided and would definitely recommend her.”

“I have worked with No Naked Windows on a number of projects since she was recommended to me in 2016. I work with clients who expect flawless standards and a professional service, so I’m always looking for reliable, consistent and good quality craftspeople. Christine delivers every time. She also gives great advice because she really knows her field.
Projects included window treatments for contemporary new build in West London, fabric sourcing and various upholstery for new and antique pieces, including some incredible bespoke ottomans upholstered in hides. I’ve recommended her to a number of professional and personal clients and contacts.”
