With Halloween just around the corner and the clocks going back last weekend, everything seems quite dark at the moment. Instead of fighting this in your interior, why not embrace it? Deep hues are in vogue this season and they’re a great way to channel the changes going on in the outside world.
Beautiful black tones in particular have a bewitching appeal. If you’d like to introduce the shade to your home, your windows are the ideal place to begin. So pick a black palette, pull down your blinds and turn your home into a cosy candle-lit retreat.
The only question that remains is which of our black blinds will encourage you to come over to the ‘dark side’? Kirsty Martin from the Web-Blinds team has highlighted a few of her favourites here, but there are many other enchanting designs to choose from.
“For the ultimate in snug style, look no further than this Elston Black Roman. Our Roman blinds are fully-lined as standard. The linings not only create a luxurious effect, but also help to prevent draughts.
“Or if you’d prefer to add a touch of texture to your room, our Mud Bath Vertical blind is just the ticket. This woven fabric looks striking set against crisp white walls. Monochrome schemes have taken home interest magazines by storm and they’re very easy to recreate.
“We couldn’t talk about injecting a hint of ‘black magic’ into your décor without mentioning our Venetian blind that goes by the same name. The sleek slats are brilliant for maintaining your privacy, which is handy if you forget to stock up on sweets and need to hide from any ‘trick or treaters’!
“And if bold blacks seem just a little too daring, you could consider a chic charcoal option instead. Our Como Charcoal Roller blind features a clever blackout coating, which works to reduce unwanted light. This is perfect if you’re plagued by a pesky street lamp in the evenings.”
