Let your blinds do the talking

How to theme a room around a statement window dressing

You’ve heard of statement walls but have you ever thought of adding drama to a room with a statement window dressing? As the window is a key aspect of a well-designed space it seems odd that this area is often the last to be thought about when considering a room makeover. Here we have picked five of our most eye-catching blinds and showed how they can be used as the focal point of a room, coordinated with the furnishings, art and accessories that surround them.

ECLECTIC CHIC


Burst Pink Roller Blinds

Who says you should confine yourself to only two shades for a colour scheme? We love this multi coloured batik style fabric, especially against the period styling of a Georgian house. The mouldings, high ceilings and picture rails in neutral tones of white and pale grey juxtapose wonderfully with the bold tones that are carried through into the soft furnishings. Mixing in both classic and contemporary furniture and art pieces brings everything together into a considered and stylish look.

How would we style it?
A teal velvet couch chesterfield style couch with an array of silk cushions in different sizes and colours, brass Mid Century Modern light fittings, walnut accent furniture, pop art prints in intricate gold frames, a charcoal grey rug and lots of brightly coloured glass accessories.

CREAM AND CALM


Marble Earth Waterproof Roller Blind

There’s nothing like relaxing into a warm bubble bath and what better an environment to do that in than a serene, balanced and harmonious bathroom. Cool cream and stone shades play perfectly with natural wood and white porcelain to create a truly chic and calm space. Our range of waterproof blinds are ideal for bathrooms as you don’t have to worry about condensation ruining the fabric while our marble style prints are perfection in this area of the home.

How would we style it?
French chateau style wooden furniture with a pale wash, a traditional white porcelain bathroom suite, a large intricate mirror, pale wood or marble tiled floors, the fluffiest stone coloured towels you can find, mercury glass accessories and lots and lots of candles.

BURNISHED BLOOMS


Orla Kiely Multi Stem Tomato Roller Blinds

One of the easiest ways to style a room is by picking a beautiful feature pattern to work with, especially if you are not able to repaint or change the floor covering. Using bold prints against flat neutral walls. Our stunning range of Orla Kiely fabric roller blinds are ideal for the task as they mix neutral bases with loud pops of colour that can then be incorporated into accessories and table dressings.

How would we style it?
Deep aubergine purple walls with Orla’s Seagrass Green Spot Flower print blinds, a black dining table with a purple runner, a long centrepiece planter filled with succulents, gold detailed tableware and cutlery, green glassware and an olive green rug to add some dimension.

CITRUS GRANDEUR


Gloss Blue Aluminium Venetian Blind

Having a period property doesn’t mean you have to stick to traditional décor. Why not add a twist with an acid bright pop of colour? An easy way to select your key colours is to find a traditional patterned fabric in a surprising colour that you can coordinate with accessories and soft furnishings. Here a taupe damask is brought to life with a jarring turquoise blue that matches perfectly with our glossy blue venetian blinds.

How would we style it?
Pale grey walls with glossy pink venetian blinds, a grand jacquard sofa with a pink stripe, a vase of pale pink ostrich feathers, a tryptic of geometric prints in black and rose gold which is also carried through into candlesticks and other decorative accessories.

RETRO COOL


Ella Doran ‘Sevens’ Taupe Cordless Roller Blind

Definitely one for music lovers, this attention-grabbing design features a photographic repeat pattern of seven inch vinyl records against a taupe background (also available on red). The multiple colours of the record labels make it incredible easy to incorporate into a room design as you can pick out any of the shades for your accent pieces that tie everything together such as cushions, throws, lights and decorative accessories like vases and statues.

How would we style it?
Bare brick walls or red brick print wallpaper, framed iconic album covers on the walls, industrial look light fittings, a retro style mustard coloured sofa with musical instrument emblazoned cushions, cacti in concrete look pots and of course lots of stacks of records!
