Australian House of the Year
Saturday, 1 July 2017 at 1:10:07 PMAnna Livia string curtains are featured in The Australian House of the Year.... which is right here in the Shire. The entertainment level has very distinct zones, including gym, spa and massage rooms, bowling alley, bar and sunken T.V. lounge. To create a feeling of enclosed comfort in the sunken lounge, we installed grey, sparkling silver Waterfall Curtains. The curtain is a heavy poly string. We wrapped it around on 3 sides, puddling onto the floor. The heading is S-Fold, which allows for double fullness, and a higher level of privacy. The curtains stack back when required. The massage room features the same style and colour.

Conquer the Clutter
Saturday, 17 September 2016 at 12:02:32 PMYou CAN Conquer the Clutter In the course of my work I often meet people who have too much stuff, who struggle to let go of things, long passed their use by date. Things that cease to be of any use in their lives. Relics left over from past hobbies, courses taken, past careers and relationships. Interestingly, one of the reasons people often hold onto things is... HOPE. The wardrobe that is full of clothes, that no longer fit... theyHOPE to loose weight to wear them again. The abandoned project, HOPING to one day finish. Those shelves full of books. HOPING to one day read. The list goes on, and the reasons are many and varied. However one constant that I have observed is, that all of this 'stuff' weighs people down in the same way. The space taken up in the home, is nothing compared to the space it takes up in a persons mind. it translates to emotional baggage. Clinging to excessive amounts of belongings, ceases to motivate a person in life, and instead can CONTROL their life. ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ Here are a few tips to help you conquer the clutter.

Harlequin and Sanderson Fabrics
Friday, 7 September 2012 at 4:11:59 PM
The arrival of Sanderson and Harlequin fabrics here at Anna Livia is very exciting. The colour and flamboyance of design is sensational. Curtains, cushions, bedspreads will be outstanding using some of these superb designs. Of course, curtains are not the only window treatment that can benefit from the use of these incredible fabrics. Anna Livia has by far the finest Roman blind available. Our Roman blinds can be hand operated or motorised for ease of operation. This is particularly effective where there are more than one blind in a room. Motorisation is ideal for curtains also. The home theatre curtains and the main bedroom curtains love motorisation !
Anna Livia is also thrilled with the wallpaper range from Sanderson and Harlequin. The applications are endless for these papers. Traditional, modern, contemporary and retro to vintage. All that is required is imagination.
Anna Livia invites you in to the showroom to view the extensive range of fabrics, to which we have added Sanderson and Harlequin. The possibliities for you are endless, when combined with our expertise and imagination.
Official Opening of New Showroom
Monday, 20 August 2012 at 10:57:08 AM
The official opening of Anna Livia's new showroom was a resounding success.
We had lots of friends old and new along with business owners join in the celebrations.
The Leader newspaper were here, along with Sutherland Shires mayor Carol Provan, who proved to be very popular with everyone. Carol is also a great fan of curtains by Anna Livia, and she made sure everyone knew that.
The new showroom gives us great opportunity to showcase curtains and interior decor on a greater scale than before. There are many curtain styles on show, using wonderful fabrics from fabric houses such as James Dunlop, Wortley and of course the very innovative Materialised.
One thing we will be aiming to do at the new showroom is to educate our clients about the benefits of curtains in reducing energy consumption. The addition of curtains with lining will reduce heat loss and gain by 5%. There is also the massive noise reduction of 34%, when an interlining is added. These are benefits that Anna Livia is very keen to get across to peolple when they are considering window treatments. The advantage with curtains by Anna Livia is that we can do the job on time, in budget and with style. The solution we provide, is one that will do the job it is intended for, and look beautiful at the same time.

Curtains Save on Power Bills
Saturday, 11 August 2012 at 12:14:19 PM
There is so much discussion about energy bills in the media at the moment. This is an area that Anna Livia has been passionate about for a very long time. We have been educating our clients on the benefits of curtains for energy saving. The use of curtains as insulation against the heat and the cold has long been overlooked. Many people are unaware of the fact that a 'lined' curtain can reduce heat loss by 4% in winter. In summer, heat gain is reduced by 5%. These statistics can be improved even more with the addition of a pelmet. This stops heat gain/loss over the top of the curtain tracks. Good design is also a factor. At Anna Livia our expertise on these matters is second to none. Curtains are not just window dressing, they are another means to reduce costs. The benefit to the environment is also a worthy consideration, reduced power consumption means less Co2, which is a major contributor to global warming.
