What makes Canberra unique? 
Canberra is purpose built, highly planned and unapologetically suburban.  Trees outnumber people, making the city and surrounds feel open and natural.  Although it presents a sleepy facade, beneath the hushed exterior thrives a dynamic community that makes the most of its surrounding hills and bushlands, its artistic endeavours and its ethnically diverse community.


The conquering capital
Canberra was built was for a reason – to create an official capital city for the newly federated country of Australia and thus to end to the rivalry between Sydney and Melbourne for the position.  Inhabited initially mostly by politicians and public servants, over the decades the city has diversified and developed its own unique identity and culture. 
“Govies” or government-built homes for public servants are still standard-fare in many of the capital’s suburbs.  They are modest, family homes, usually of unfinished brick veneer, which can be spruced up with the right window furnishings.  Bright, light Aluminium Venetian Blinds add radiance, while darker Timber or Cedar Blinds add sophistication. 


People of Pleasure
Although a distinct population of Canberra has come to the city specifically for work reasons, the city’s natural surrounds make pure, natural play an easy and common pursuit.  Lakeside parks are perfect for cycling and picnics, while a nearby nature reserve and national park are popular bush-walking destinations. 

Bed and Breakfast lodgings are dotted around the city surrounds, catering to weekend nature lovers.  Roman Blinds, Sunscreen Roller Blinds and Cedar Privacy Blinds contribute to the B&B’s private and luxurious atmospheres.

Distinct seasons
Canberra has more distinct seasons than many other capitals in Australia.  Blazing hot summer days compete with temperatures anywhere else in Australia, while winters can be bitterly cold. 

Homes here need protection from the elements, and the right window furnishings help.  Cellular Blinds hold pockets of air which act as natural insulation to keep rooms comfortable in any temperature.  Roman Blinds and Cedar and Timber Blinds are other popular choices for keeping the hot or cold air out.
