First on our list of window blind ideas is modern retro, a pleasing updated take on the 1960s with an updated look. Stylish and fun, there is a pleasant edginess to this style that makes it perfect for any home. Alongside curved furniture, funky fabrics work really well. The window dressings should be uncluttered, but in order to add impact, choose block colours such as a red blackout blind or a green blind for extra clout.
When winter arrives, we want a cosy, welcoming atmosphere and appeal to our homes. A key area where this can have maximum impact is in our choice of window treatment; sumptuous fabrics, layered textures and carefully selected colour palettes will ensure a stylish look. Thankfully, you don’t have to spend a lot of time or money to get a beautiful layered look. Simply choose a window blind with a complimenting or contrasting curtain fabric and you have the look you want.
Still on trend this year is grey, as well as lighter shades of brown, such as a beautiful mocha shade and various hues of blue. Choose a window blind with a barely-there pattern and in a lighter shade, such as this denim blue herringbone patterned blind adding either cream or navy curtains to give texture to a room with sumptuous layers.
How you dress a window can attract attention to it or divert the gaze somewhere else in the room. Neutral tones and colours ‘open’ the gaze of the window into a room, which is ideal for when you want the focal point to stand out, such as the beautiful architectural features of a fireplace.
Adding character to a window is ideal if you want to draw attention to it – one great way of doing this is with patterned blinds. Floral print never really goes out of fashion but there is another pattern returning to claim its throne – geometric pattern.
Add depth, interest and character with the dramatic dark background of this patterned blind with orange prisms inlaid. Stunning in any room of your home and available in both Translucent and Blackout options, this makes a superb addition to the bedroom in particular or if you have a hallway that needs some attention, this would make a beautiful hallway blind with a difference.
Finally, botanical prints have been making an impact in interior design for the last few seasons with floral inspiration set to continue into 2019.
However, if you fancy a change from the usual blooms, you are in luck. As well as tropical prints being top of the list, we are also seeing nods to Japanese patterns and floral prints, check out our Tranquility Rust print to create the Zen look in your home. Use it on its own or for an uber-dramatic effect, layering it with block-colour curtains or a contrasting pelmet.
