Add a punchy print
We quite like the idea of stepping off a boat, onto idyllic white sands in Hawaii and being greeted with a lei flower garland around our neck. But of course, we’re just daydreaming.
We’ve got the perfect alternative, and it doesn’t involve gazing dreamily out the window. No, it’s all about dressing your window in the same style, and the bold blooms of our Mexican Chilli Roller blind are definitely up for the job.
Create a relaxing sanctuary
Of course, not all prints have to be in-your-face. Damask patterns – ornate designs which originated in Asia – are a great way to introduce a touch of luxury into your home. Our Damask Taupe Roller blind features the gorgeous design in a subtle shade, making it perfect for statement and neutral décor schemes alike.
Add a touch of continental style
Equally, our friends across the Channel definitely know how to do style. And though our Blue Cheese Roman blind might not sound sophisticated, the classic toile print has timeless appeal. The design is perfect for adding a lovely romantic feel in a bedroom – opt for a blackout blind by choosing a blackout lining.
Geometric designs are as on-trend as ever. A luxurious repeating pattern will have you feeling like you’re walking the aisles of a faraway market. Our Regal Gold Roman blind has a pretty metallic hue that will leave your windows simply sparkling!
Pick magnificent buds
Last, buy by no means least, is a style that’s blooming lovely! Magnolia and cherry blossom are two flowers that have long since been associated with Eastern promise. Our Sky High Roman blind brings that same elegance to your windows with a soft design ideal for a living room or bedroom.
